Bruce Willis Charity Bike Auction Raises Nearly $25,000 for Military Service Members and Their Families
Five Motorcycles from Actor Bruce Willis’ Personal Collection Auctioned Online. Auction Proceeds Donated to National Nonprofit, Boot Campaign.
Austin, TX (December 11, 2013) – A year-long online motorcycle auction has raised nearly $25,000—monies that will go toward furthering the Boot Campaign’s dedication to cultivating awareness, promoting patriotism, and providing assistance to military, past and present, and their families. The auction was made possible by a generous donation from actor Bruce Willis. In 2012, the Boot Campaign was blown away when it received news that Bruce Willis would be donating five motorcycles from his garage to use as a fundraiser for the national nonprofit organization.
Hosted on the website, Charity Buzz, the auction featured these five bikes from Willis’ personal collection:
1972 Harley Davidson Ironhead Sportster
1956 Cushman Eagle
1988 Yamaha TW
1991 Yamaha XT 350
2005 Ducati 1000DS
Born on a military base in Germany, Bruce Willis has a long-standing commitment to supporting U.S. Armed Forces. “I wanted to use my bikes in a way that would benefit our military service members, and I am thankful to have found the Boot Campaign as the catalyst for using my bikes in a way that will give back to our country’s true heroes,” said Bruce Willis. “These bikes have been a lot of fun to ride, and my hope is they can do a lot of good for our veterans.”
The Boot Campaign would like to thank San Diego Harley Davidson, Hog Alley and ML Transports for their dedication to making each bike ready for auction and ensure its safe arrival at the homes of each auction winner.
