And We’re Off! CARTM Receives First Car Donation

Deb, Carl, Karen,Keys

Carl and Deb Vandervoort hand over the keys to their Volvo which they are donating to CARTM’s car donation program. Executive Director Karen Reddick-Yurka couldn’t be happier.

It was a big day for CARTM when Deb and Carl Vandervoort, signed over the title and handed the keys to their beloved Volvo station wagon to Executive Director Karen Reddick-Yurka.  “We loved this vehicle for a very long time and it has been a big part of our lives,” said Deb Vandervoort, “but we just couldn’t keep up with the repairs so we decided it was time to donate it to CARTM.  It was so easy!”

Karen says “donate your car to CARTM. It’s reuse in action!”

When Deb and Carl made the decision to donate their car, they simply called The Center for Car Donations who took care of all the logistics.  They sent a tow truck to Scovell’s parking lot, loaded the car, Deb & Carl signed the title over to CARM and handed over the keys.  The Vandervoorts get a tax write-off and CARTM gets cash for the car when it sells.  For more information about how to donate your car or truck, running or not, visit:  Center for Car Donations

You can also donate your motorcycle, boat, jetski or RV, but they must be in running condition.

Ready to clear out your garage, driveway or storage unit?  Donate your vehicle to CARTM—just like Deb & Carl Vandervoort, you’ll be glad you did!

First Ever “CARTM TREASURES” Live Auction

CARTM Treasurea Live Auction

Hundreds of locals and visitors attended our first “CARTM Treasures Live Auction” on July 28, 2012.  The gym at NCRD was packed to the gills with over 250 lots of the best of the best from CARTM’s donations.   Belinda Spegel spent months selecting the items and putting the imaginative lots together for collectors, dealers and treasure hunters.

Pro auctioneer Paul Thompson pounded the gavel at 12:30 and kept a steady entertaining pace until the 250th lot was sold at 4:30.

Our thanks to event partner Food Roots who provided delicious, locally-sourced food for event attendees.

Thanks go out to over 40 volunteers who helped make CARTM’s first live auction a big hit!
