ADESA, a world-class auction company, raised more than $50,000 for the NADA Foundation, a strong supporter of a nonprofit organization that provides canine assistance dogs to people with disabilities.
ADESA announced the auction on a blog posted to the company's website during the 2018 NADA Convention in Las Vegas.
"ADESA auctions over the past six NADA shows have raised more than $334,000 for the NADA Foundation's Frank E. McCarthy Memorial Fund, in whose name the donation to Canine Companions is made," the post said. "McCarthy was NADA chief executive from 1968 to 2001."
ADESA, which named a new executive sales director this spring, is noted as a leading provider of vehicle auction and remarketing services, conducting about 75 vehicle auctions throughout North America.
The NADA Foundation supports Canine Companions for Independence. Founded in 1975, Canine Companions for Independence "enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships," its website says.
