On April 29th, Edelbrock, a designer, manufacturer and distributor of performance replacement parts for automobiles and motorcycles, sponsored the “Rev’ved Up 4 Kidz” charity event to benefit the Center for Learning Unlimited. The event consisted of a gala dinner, a live and silent auction, a car show, entertainment and celebrity guest appearances. Two donations from Gladiator® GarageWorks, a garage makeover valued at $5,000 and a Modular GearBox with a Maple Top, stole the race to drive up bids during a silent auction at the event in Torrance, California, just outside of Los Angeles.

The two top bidders included racing legends “Parnelli” Jones, the 1963 Indianapolis 500 winner, and George Follmer, one of the most successful road racers of the 1970s, having raced in several Indianapolis 500s and NASCAR races.

The former racing competitors drove the auction price all the way up to the true value of the $5,000 garage makeover prize - a rarity in auctions - as they met applause from the spectators. Though Follmer won the top prize, Jones continues to show great interest in a racing-themed garage of his own.

Gladiator brand’s sponsorship was seen by more than 8,000 people who attended the two-day event. The auction portion of the event raised $140,000 for The Center for Learning Unlimited, which provides a school for children with learning disabilities.
