Leake Auction will sell the cars in Dallas to Benefit The Jesse Tree Organization
TULSA, Okla. (October 12, 2010) — Leake Auction Company just consigned 13 cars from a private collection in Texas for their Dallas auction. The collection features several distinctive sports cars, including: a 2006 Saleen S7 Coupe, 2008 Spyker C8 Spyder, 2003 Lamborghini Murcielago Coupe, a 2005 Lamborghini Gallardo Model 140 Coupe, a 2003 Aston Martin Vanquish S Coupe, a 2007 Bentley Azure Convertible, a 2005 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti Coup and a 2002 Ferrari Spider. Other cars from this collection include: a 1974 Volkswagen Thing, a 1930 Ford Model A, a 1962 Corvette Convertible, a 2008 Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Convertible and a 2005 Ford GT Coupe. All proceeds from the sale will go to The Jesse Tree, a non-profit organization in Galveston, TX.
The Jesse Tree is a faith-based, organization that connects people with the health care, social services and ministerial resources they need to rebuild their lives and uplift their spirits. From hunger to education to chronic medical conditions, The Jesse Tree works through direct services and a network of partners to ensure that clients receive all the care and services they need. They work to determine every service for which a client is eligible and then connect them to those services.
After Hurricane Ike battered the Galveston and south Texas region in 2008, The Jesse Tree saw a tremendous increase in need for services while its supplies dwindled. “Through Tony Buzbee’s generous donation, we will continue to provide food, medical assistance and spiritual service to those who desperately need it,” stated Ted Hanley, the executive director of The Jesse Tree organization. “He has really offered us the opportunity to sustain our services. We spend $15 million a year on fresh vegetables, fruits and other food to feed 50,000 people.”
“This is a magical collection of high performance specialty cars,” stated Richard Sevenoaks, president of Leake Auction Company. “These are cars rarely seen, so you will not want to miss this collection. This is a great opportunity to own a world-class automobile.”
All of the cars will be offered for sale during the Leake Car Auction. The auction will take place in Dallas Market Hall, November 19-21. Doors will open at 9am daily, and admission is only $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and $7 for children. 500 cars are anticipated to cross the two-ring auction block.
