Two vehicles crossed the auction block in Houston with 100 percent of their hammer prices benefiting two incredible causes. On Saturday, American businessman and philanthropist George Shinn donated a 2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition (Lot #3001) to support Samaritan’s Purse and the Florida Disaster Relief Fund to support those suffering in the wake of Hurricane Ian’s devastation in Southwest Florida. Shawn Shelby, grandson of Carroll Shelby and an American racer and entrepreneur, drove the limited-edition Mustang on the block, which initially hammered in at $400,000. Immediately following the sale, an additional $288,000 in pledged donations were made by Shinn, Michelle Mauzy, Beth and Preston Ingram, Kathie Lee Gifford and Rick Hendrick. Before the car could get too far away, it was donated back by the winning bidder and hammered a second time for $300,000. Additional cash donations were collected from generous guests in attendance and the entire amount raised for hurricane relief efforts surpassed $1 million. On Friday afternoon, a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS Callaway/Hendrick Edition (Lot #3000) donated by Michelle Mauzy sold for $250,000 benefiting Operation Homefront.
