SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. _ The first Saratoga Auto Auction, held Sept. 22-23 and organized by the Saratoga Automobile Museum, raised more than $150,000 to support the museum’s distracted driving, education and exhibit programs.
“The proceeds raised at the auction will help make our roads safer,” said Jim Letts, executive director of the museum. “Our distracted driving safety program reaches more than 10,000 high school students across the Capital Region each year. This program is more crucial than ever, as young drivers are tempted with the allure of the screen while their eyes should be focused on the road at all times.” A total of $156,000 was collected by the museum for the auction, as a percentage of each vehicle auctioned and sold is earmarked for the museum.
