Brent and Nicole Keryluke were killed on May 5 after the motorcycle they were driving collided with a truck. They were 35 and 34 years old.
Their two young children, three-year-old Liam and six-year-old Arielle, are being cared for by grandparents with help from other members of the family. Both kids have special needs, so their care is a little more expensive. The grandparents had a 1973 Pontiac Parisienne their son had been working on to auction to sell. The family didn’t want to part with the vehicle but didn’t really have a choice.
Then, the auctioneers basically stopped the auction, let everybody know what was happening, where the money was going to go, and then something shocking happened.
The car was sold for $29,000 and then was donated back. Then it was sold for $30,000 and donated back. Then it went for $20,000 and donated back again.
