Kendal Motor Oil - Kendall Motor Oil is gearing up to auction off a one-of-a-kind custom car with proceeds helping to cure kids’ cancer. ‘The Kendall Custom’ is a 1967 Mustang GT500 Restomod and will belong to the highest bidder in early 2022 at Mecum Kissimmee. The proceeds from the car’s sale will go to Curing Kids Cancer, a Georgia-based nonprofit that has raised more than $20 million to fund research and find a cure for pediatric cancers.
“It takes approximately $25,000 to help a child receive a life-saving treatment that’s been developed for leukemia and other cancers,” said Curing Kids Cancer Co-founder and President Grainne Owen. “We anticipate the proceeds from the car sale to potentially help save the lives of multiple children and that’s truly amazing.”
Grainne and Clay Owen founded Curing Kids Cancer in 2005, two years after the death of their son Killian, who died of leukemia in 2003. Killian was just 9 years old. Now, the Owens are using his memory as an inspiration to help other families battling childhood cancers.
‘The Kendall Custom’ will be sold at auction at Mecum Kissimmee on January 15, 2022. It will be the only opportunity for one bidder to acquire his or her new, customized and sought-after collector’s item. All proceeds from the auction will go to Curing Kids Cancer.
