Auto auction raising funds for breast cancer awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and already there have been multiple events across Lubbock, including the race for the cure that took place last weekend.

The Susan G. Komen Foundation of Lubbock will be fundraising all this month, and the Lone Star Auto Auction will be helping them. The company has offered to match the amount raised during their auto auction fundraiser.

The owner Lone Star Auto Auction, Jim McNulty, says he has a personal connection to this event.

"I've been effected by cancer," McNulty said. " I lost my wife to cancer, and that's why we're so supportive of the whole thing." Lone Star Auto Auction founder BJ McNulty passed away on April 22, 2006.

The business has decorated it's facility with bras they have collected which, they say, will be turned in to Ashley Furniture for further fundraising. Lone Star Auto Auction will present a check to the Komen Foundation with the money raised on November 2nd.
