Jay Leno’s auctioned tractor sold for $535,000 at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., and the Gainesville Fisher House Foundation will receive $235,000 of the proceeds.
The tractor, which Leno named “Lil Tug,” was sold to benefit America’s military and their families.
“We’re so grateful that Jay Leno supports the troops that serve our great nation and that he understands the importance of family,” said Patti Fabiani, Executive Director of the Gainesville Fisher House Foundation. “We couldn’t thank him enough.”
A home for military families staying at the Malcolm Randall VA Medical Center will be built with the proceeds.
