Toronto, Ontario — SATA went all-in at the Canadian Collision Industry Forum (CCIF) in Toronto last week when the company auctioned off a one-of-a-kind Stan Lee-inspired spray gun and donated all the proceeds to Autism Speaks Canada.
The gun—a custom SATAjet 5000 B decorated with comic and pop art designs—sold for $3,000 to Doug Roberts of Fix Auto Barrie North, with all proceeds going to Autism Speaks, an organization dedicated to promoting solutions across the spectrum and along a life span for needs of people with autism spectrum disorder and their families.
For the past three years, SATA has attended CCIF Toronto and auctioned off a limited edition spray gun. Two years ago, the brand auctioned off a Canada 150 gun at CCIF Toronto—of which there were only 150 made—and, this year, it showcased its one-of-a-kind Stan Lee-inspired tool.
Doug Roberts was also the winner of the very first Canada 150 gun two years ago at CCIF 2018.
“This is a one of one gun,” John Turner, general manager for SATA told crowds at CCIF Toronto 2020. “You will never see anything like this again. We’re trying to help kids with autism, and all of the money we receive for this gun will go to Autism Speaks Canada.”
