Proceeds raised at the UFC Camaro auction will benefit the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing support for the families of United States military personnel injured or lost in performance of their duty. Likewise, the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund works to assist our wounded warriors by providing facilities and services that ensure that injured military personnel receive the best possible treatment our nation has to offer.

These privately-funded facilities include the Center for the Intrepid, a state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation facility at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas that provides those with severe extremity injuries, severe burns and amputees the best opportunity to regain their ability to live and work productively; and the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) in Bethesda, Maryland, a $65 million, 72,000 sq. ft., advanced center dedicated to the diagnosis and clinical care of service members suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI), post traumatic stress (PTS) and other complex psychological health issues.

“We are excited that we can help raise money for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund by auctioning off the UFC Camaro at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Event,” UFC President Dana White said. “We appreciate the sacrifices the men and women of our armed forces make on a daily basis and this auction is just another way to continue our support.”

“It’s great to be a part of this project,” Adam Bonaldi, Vice President of Findlay Customs and Modern Muscle Las Vegas, said. “When you see big names like Barrett Jackson and the UFC coming together to make this possible for the Intrepid Fallen Hero’s fund, it’s important to mention  all the smaller companies and individuals who helped along the way. I would like to say thank you to everyone who made this possible. It’s very rewarding to know the car will be crossing the block in just a couple of days as a culmination of many great companies along with tremendous individual efforts. I know whoever buys the car will not only be giving back to families who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, but they will take home a piece of Automotive Art that will stand the test of time.”

The Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Event runs from Sept. 23-Sept. 25 at the Mandalay Bay Resort. To become a bidder, visit www.Barrett-Jackson.com/bid/.
