Manheim Pennsylvania Hosts Annual Xtreme Spring Sale and Fundraiser
The sale included nearly 650 classic, specialty and exotic vehicles with the charity event raising $115,450 to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation

ATLANTA—March 29, 2022 – Bringing high energy and excitement to their lanes and fulfilling its commitment to raise money for Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Delaware and Susquehanna Valley, Manheim Pennsylvania hosted its annual Xtreme Spring Sale on March 24. Dealers who participated in the physical and digital sale event had an opportunity to bid on nearly 650 unique vehicles. In addition, a customized 2021 Ford Bronco was auctioned off and purchased by Andrew and Angela DeLeo from Manheim Used Car Factory, with proceeds benefitting the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Of the 650 cars offered during this sale, 350 were sold.

“We are so incredibly grateful to our partners at Manheim Pennsylvania for their support of the mission of Make-A-Wish,” said Jennifer Davis, President and CEO of Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Delaware & Susquehanna Valley. “Ensuring that wishes come true is not possible without those in our community like those who gathered together last night.  We consider our friends at Manheim part of our Make-A-Wish family. They are true wish heroes and words alone cannot express our gratitude.”

Manheim Pennsylvania has been hosting its Xtreme Spring Sale – their largest sale – for more than 12 years. The sale attracted more than 2,100 in-lane and digital buyers along with 400-plus dealers who attended the charity gala held that evening. In addition, the auction will be the public send-off point for the annual Make-A-Wish Mother’s Day Truck Convoy on Sunday, May 8. According to Make-A-Wish, the convoy provides funding for more than 75 percent of the wishes granted by the Susquehanna Valley chapter each year. “We could not be more excited to offer our site as the starting point for this huge truck convoy that benefits Make-A-Wish. It’s truly going to be a special experience for our team and our community,” said Joey Hughes, Manheim Pennsylvania vice president and general manager.
“I have been attending Manheim Pennsylvania’s auto auction since I was 16 years old. This auction has always impressed me, but the Xtreme Spring Event is my favorite,” said Constantine “Cosmo” Kogan, owner of Cosmo Motors in Hickory, North Carolina. “As owner of Cosmo Motors, I am always searching for amazing inventory for my dealership. Manheim Pennsylvania provides us with those top units needed for our success. My wife Nicole and I love the charity gala event. The Make-A-Wish organization is near and dear to our hearts, and we were happy to purchase some of the wish kid artwork during the charity auction.”
