Look at this beauty, a 1956 Convertible Ford Thunderbird. At the Barrett Jackson auction, this car sold for $30k, and the proceeds were donated to the LEO Foundation to benefit students without financial means to pursue higher education! That’s $30k in scholarships! We thank our amazing and generous donors and board of directors, Jeff and Lori Lakes, owners of Financial Solutions, who donated this car. Their dedication to our community and helping young adults achieve their dreams is truly inspiring!
