Mack auction is a golden success
Mack Trucks Australia has raised $100,000 for the Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland by auctioning the last remaining limited-edition 50th Anniversary Southern Cross Titan at the Commercial Vehicles Industry Association of Queensland (CVIAQ) President’s Charity Dinner.
‘Goldie’ was released last year to celebrate the trucking giant’s 50th anniversary of production in Australia and is a one-of-a-kind 685 horsepower truck, with a brilliant gold cab, which represents the rugged Australian outback.
A long-time Mack fan, who would like to remain anonymous, was ecstatic to add the iconic truck to his collection following a successful bid during the event.
Vice President Sales – Mack Trucks, Dean Bestwick, said Mack and their customers are proud to support a charity that provides vital assistance to people living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders throughout Queensland.
“Cancer has touched the lives of many people within our organisation. It’s really important that we show our support to those who’ve been affected by the disease,” Mr Bestwick said.
Each year Mack Trucks attends the CVIAQ President’s Charity Dinner, an industry event which allows manufacturers and suppliers of commercial vehicles to come together for a great cause. The CVIAQ and their partners have raised over $1Million for the Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland over the past 12 years.
