Tennessee, United States — This past weekend, the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer auctioned a custom Gen 3 Factory Five Type 65 Coupe for a remarkable $137,500.
According to a press release from the Austin Hatcher Foundation, automotive therapy is one of the services provided at no cost to families facing pediatric cancer.
This project was conducted through the foundation’s Industrial Arts STEAM Program, which provides diagnosed children and their siblings an introduction to basic shop skills, which can mitigate and treat the unwanted side effects of childhood cancer and chemotherapy treatment.
All funds from the SATA funded project were returned to the foundation, who provide essential intervention and therapy services, throughout a child’s diagnosis to survivorship of the family.
“An excellent result for a very noble cause! It has been a great pleasure working with the Austin Hatcher Foundation on this fabulous project,” said Joerg Goettling, SATA’s head of export.
“We are beyond thankful for the incredible generosity of the automotive community,” said foundation CEO, Amy Jo Osborn.
“This project and auction was made possible for our families thanks to the support of so many wonderful people.”
