CARLISLE, PA – There are 400+ consignments slated to cross the block on September 29-30 as part of the Fall Carlisle Collector Car Auction and of those 400+, a trio of them will benefit charity. Carlisle Auctions is excited to work with sellers who support Mission 23, Rescue 22, and Blue Star Mothers as a means to raise money and awareness for these great causes.
Of the three planned charity lots, one will run Thursday, while the other two run Friday. Thursday’s offering is at 11:45 a.m. and comes to the auction by way of Cedar Grove United Methodist Church. The church is showcasing and selling a 1923 Ford T Bucket that was built from the ground up by the church and its parishioners. More so, the youth of the church, with the help of their parents and other community members built the car as a fund raiser in support of their mission work. Annually the group serves the Appalachia Service Project and this year, the mission group will be working in Kentucky.
As the ’23 T Bucket crosses block, members from Cedar Grove UMC and Mission 23 will be on hand as a room full of car enthusiasts will bid on the ride. 100% of the sale plus any donations from the room will go directly to the group not only for their work in Kentucky, but to assist with funding future missions too.

In addition to the ’23 T Bucket, Carlisle Auctions welcomes Sission Pre-Owned of Uniontown, Pennsylvania back to the auction to sell a 2006 Cadillac DTS. Proceeds from this sale benefit the Rescue 22 Foundation. The Rescue 22 Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides the highest quality task trained service dogs to our nations combat veterans. 100% of the sale from the ’06 Cadillac will benefit Rescue 22 and the car will cross the block first thing Friday at approximately 12 p.m.

Not long after the Sission/Rescue 22 Cadillac sells, another lot of cars will come to the block with the third and final charitable tie-in. As part of the Dave Ferro Collection (4 p.m. on September 29), Mr. Ferro will run nine (9) lots, with one of them, a 1977 Dodge Power Wagon Military tuck, selling with dollars benefiting Blue Star Mothers. Blue Star Mothers is a group of moms throughout the nation who have children serving in the military. The first $10,000 from the sale of the ’77 Power Wagon will go to them for use within their organization.
