Donated 2014 Ford Shelby Raises $500,000 for Brain Injury Association of America
Date:8/12/2013

Vienna, VA (PRWEB) August 12, 2013

Emotions were high in Reno, NV Saturday when the last production model of the Ford 2014 Shelby GT500 Convertible sold for an unprecedented $500,000 at the inaugural Hot August Nights Auction presented by Barrett-Jackson.

He’s married now and has got a couple of kids, and has his driver’s license.” Jones added that the family received a lot of help from BIAA during Page’s recovery.

Susan H. Connors, president and CEO of BIAA, thanked everyone who made the auction possible. “On behalf of the Brain Injury Association I want to thank Ford, Barrett-Jackson, and particularly Page and Parnelli for helping us raise awareness and funds for research, treatment, and education,” Connors said.

“Chances are someone you love will sustain a brain injury at some point during your lifetime,” Connors continued. “When they do, you’ll want the best research, you’ll want top-quality care, and you’ll want local services and supports that make life worth living.”

The upcoming documentary, GODSPEED: The Story of Page Jones, documents the race car driver’s recovery and will help raise awareness of the importance of rehabili
