DETROIT – The Saturday auction of the first GMC HUMMER EV has brought in more than $2 million for the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
The auction fees and commissions have been waived for the $2.5 million auction sale, so the entire amount can go toward the nonprofit.
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation was established to honor the memory of Sept. 11 first-responder Stephen Siller. It builds mortgage-free, accessible smart homes for the most catastrophically-injured veterans and provides mortgage-free homes for Gold Star families and the families of first responders killed in the line of duty.
Production on the HUMMER EV begins in late 2021 at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant, which received more than $2 billion in investments to produce zero-emission vehicles.
