A number of our treasured friends in the collector car community have passed away recently as a result of heart issues, including two men very close to Barrett-Jackson. Both of these men exemplified the philanthropic spirit of car collectors and contributed much to Barrett-Jackson’s charitable efforts on the auction block. In honor of all our loved ones affected by heart disease, we are committed to supporting the American Heart Association’s efforts by helping raise money, bring awareness and promote heart health.
