Grant A Gift Receives Donation From Sale of Vegas Golden Knights Themed 2018 Ford Mustang GT

Grant A Gift Autism Foundation received $250,000 from the sale of a customized Ford Mustang GT themed after the Vegas Golden Knights (VGK) hockey team at Barrett-Jackson’s 2018 Las Vegas auction.

The 2018 Ford Mustang GT Premium Coupe was donated by Las Vegas auto dealership, Gaudin Motor Company, and wrapped in a black and good vinyl design, the official colors of VGK.

Each year, Barrett-Jackson auctions off vehicles to help local and national charity organizations. During the auction, the VGK wrapped Mustang GT sold to a private owner for $250,000. Barrett-Jackson donated 100 percent of the sale proceeds to Grant A Gift Foundation.

Gaudin Motor Company’s Gary Ackerman; VGK players Brad Hunt and Brayden McNabb and Grant A Gift Foundation representatives were all on hand to celebrate.

“We are extremely grateful to Gaudin Motor Company, Barrett-Jackson and of course the donor for supporting Grant A Gift,” says Terri Janison, President and CEO. “This generous and significant donation will help us provide necessary services, access and support to the children living with autism and their families.”

Gaudin Motor Company and its owners, the Ackermans are long-standing advocates of Grant A Gift Autism Foundation and autism awareness.

This past summer, Grant A Gift, in conjunction with the UNLV Medicine Ackerman Autism Center, celebrated the grand opening of the Speech Therapy and Early Start Denver Suite expansion to the Ackerman Autism Center.
