Auctions Bring in Nearly $57,000 for SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund

Dozens of Sponsors Take Part in Ford Mustang Build and Ed Pink Engine Project

Two projects have brought nearly $57,000 to the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund, which is dedicated to fostering the next generation of automotive leaders and innovators. Proceeds from two auctions will help provide assistance to university, college and trade-school students seeking careers in the automotive industry. The SEMA Mustang Build—Powered by Women and a custom engine to be built by Ed Pink Racing Engines were sold on eBay through Auction Cause, with parts and labor supplied by dozens of automotive businesses.
