One dollar new car auction to benefit charity
November 24th, 2008 by Darren Cottingham
New car buyers on the hunt for a bargain should check out Trade Me auction website, where for the first time, a brand new car is up for auction with just a one dollar reserve.
Holden New Zealand is behind the historic auction that will see the profits, after costs, from the sale of the Holden Astra SRi Turbo Coupe donated to the Leukaemia Blood Foundation.
Simon Carr, Holden New Zealand Managing Director, says the one dollar reserve auction is an exciting new way to support the important services that the Foundation provides to thousands of New Zealanders each year. The Holden Astra SRi Turbo Coupe is currently on sale for $34,890 so I m sure that the one dollar reserve will attract a lot of attention.
Pru Etcheverry, Leukaemia Blood Foundation Executive Director, says the Foundation was over the moon about the auction. This is exciting, Holden has been a supporter of ours for more than 4 years providing vehicles for our support workers in the community, she says The funds raised with go towards our Patient Support Programmes.
The auction started yesterday and will run until Monday 1 December 2008.
