SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Right Honda received a factory-spec limited edition Civic Type R and entered it at the Barrett-Jackson auction with no reserve and will donate the proceeds to Reach Out WorldWide (ROWW). ROWW CEO Cody Walker spoke with Craig Jackson to the live audience about the car’s performance features and the significant impact the donation will have on the charity’s mission. The car’s sale price climbed quickly and sold for a record setting $165,000 USD. “I’m extremely grateful to Right Honda for supplying the car to benefit ROWW and for the generous winning bidders who took the car home at Barrett-Jackson. The funds generated will go towards ROWW’s disaster relief efforts” said ROWW CEO Cody Walker after the gavel dropped. Right Honda’s Philanthropy Director Jane D’Amelio said “Right Honda is proud to support ROWW through auctioning off the limited edition Honda Type R and our online fundraising efforts. It’s important to us to give back to charities like ROWW, especially this year as they are responding to so many unforeseen natural disasters. During the pandemic ROWW and its amazing team of volunteers put themselves on the frontlines selflessly. It’s an honor to play a small role in helping struggling communities and families served by ROWW”
The 2021 Limited Edition Type R has exclusive Phoenix Yellow paint, lightweight 20-inch forged BBS wheels which shave off 18 pounds, and additional modifications to make this the most track-focused, uncompromising version of the current Civic Type R to date. It’s powered by a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. A badge showing #51 is riveted next to the shifter and only 600 were made.
Right Honda will continue to fundraise for ROWW through May via various events at the dealership and throughout the valley. See the fundraiser tally here.
Reach Out WorldWide is a 501(c)(3) registered nonprofit founded by Paul Walker. In January of 2010, after a massive earthquake devastated Haiti, Paul spontaneously organized a relief team and responded to the disaster. On the trip, he saw a gap between the availability of skilled resources and the requirement for such personnel in post-disaster situations. Upon returning from Haiti, ROWW was established with the purpose of fulfilling this unmet need.
