Columbus, Ohio-based Nationwide Children’s Hospital received one incredible donation following the auction of two vehicles associated with Dale Earnhardt Jr.
“This is a package deal,” Earnhardt said from the auction stage. “This is an incredible opportunity for someone. We’re raising a lot of money — all the money that we raise tonight will go to the Nationwide Children’s Hospital. … Hopefully, we get a big number for these kids and take it all the way to Columbus, Ohio.”
Earnhardt Jr. also personally threw in a driver’s suit from the 2016 race season, a helmet, a pair of Daytona 500 tickets and a private tour of Rick Hendrick’s Heritage center. These goodies pushed the bid up from $350,000 to the final sale price of $400,000.
The large sum will be sent to the charity hospital with no fees or commission.
