Raises Funds to Help Military Families


Scottsdale, AZ (January 21, 2012) – George W. Bush’s 2009 Ford F-150 King Ranch 4x4 SuperCrew Pickup Truck, used exclusively on the Bush’s Crawford, TX ranch and purchased after his departure from the White House, raised $300,000 at the 42nd Annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction over the weekend. It was bought by NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick.


The proceeds of President Bush’s truck, boasting his signature on the dashboard, will benefit Fisher House Foundation, which constructs comfort homes to provide free, temporary housing to the families of service members receiving medical care at Veterans Affairs and military hospitals around the world.


“In supporting Fisher House, you are supporting our veterans,” said President Bush. “And in supporting our veterans, you’re helping America.”


“President Bush is a great patriot, and someone who has been a strong advocate for our military and their families for years,” said Ken Fisher, Chairman & CEO of Fisher House. “We are honored to have his support and appreciate his friendship.”


Last year, the Barrett-Jackson auction sold a New Holland tractor owned by Jay Leno and signed by George W. Bush for $535,000, with proceeds also going to Fisher House Foundation.


“Charity work is part of our business philosophy and helping the Fisher House Foundation to raise funds for their charity is something we are happy to do,” said Craig Jackson, Chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson Auction Company.


“Barrett-Jackson offers a unique platform for the Fisher House Foundation to spread the word about their efforts.  We are so proud to support the many men and women that protect our country,” said Steve Davis, President of Barrett-Jackson.
