eBay and The NASCAR Foundation today launched their second joint charity auction to give fans the opportunity to “start their engines” and bid on autographed memorabilia and once-in-a-lifetime racing experiences. Today through November 8, fans can visit eBay.com/NASCAR to bid on unique items including a chance to be a VIP at the 2020 Daytona 500.
As part of this special auction, fans can additionally win meet and greets with Chase Elliott, Martin Truex Jr. & Richard Petty as well as signed memorabilia from Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch, Sam Bass and Richard Petty.
“We are proud to partner with The NASCAR Foundation for the second year in a row,” said Brenda Halkias, General Manager of eBay for Charity. “Last year’s auction raised almost $25,000 and this year is bringing even more exciting inventory and experiences from notable celebrities and athletes.”
One hundred percent of the proceeds from each item will benefit The NASCAR Foundation’s programs for children. The NASCAR Foundation believes every child should have a chance at a healthy life and deserves to get across the finish line. Through the Speediatrics Children’s Fund and Betty Jane France Humanitarian Award, the Foundation is making children’s health and medical needs its top priority.
“We are thrilled to partner with eBay for Charity once again to provide once-in-a-lifetime experiences to their customers,” the NASCAR Foundation Executive Director Nichole Krieger said. “The winners of these auctions can feel good about the support they are providing to kids who really need our help across the country.”
Highlights of the VIP experiences and signed racing memorabilia available include:
In addition to the annual auction, The NASCAR Foundation recently opened a dedicated eBay store. The store includes around 50 unique pieces of memorabilia each month, with 100% of the proceeds going back to The NASCAR Foundation.
