ADESA Winnipeg, located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, has earned the inaugural 2016 Eastern Auction of the Year Award from the National Auto Auction Association. The award honors excellence in community service. ADESA Winnipeg is one of four auctions – one selected from each of NAAA’s membership regions – to win the award. Each regional chapter award winner will receive $5,000, which will be donated to the charity or charities of its choice. The National Auction of the Year Award will go to one of the regional award winners. The auction that earns the national honor will receive an additional $10,000 to be donated to the charity or charities of its choice. The auction will also grace the cover of the 2017 NAAA Member Directory. The National Auction of the Year winner will be announced on Nov. 17, during the NAAA/NRC Convention's Presidential Gala.NAAA Eastern Chapter President Charles Nichols said the award for ADESA Winnipeg is truly an honor, as it comes by way of a vote from the auction's peers. He said it was his pleasure to announce the award during National Auto Auction Week. “ADESA Winnipeg displayed the kind of dedication and support to the community and its employees that make us proud to be members of this industry and this outstanding association,” said Nichols, president of the BSCAmerica Auction Group. ADESA Winnipeg engages in numerous community service and charitable activities, on all levels. In 2011 for instance, ADESA Winnipeg's 24th Annual Golden Gavel Golf Classic and Charity Auction raised $250,000 for Variety, the Children's Charity of Manitoba, the most money raised in a single day - worldwide - in the charity's history.
