Compass Auctions Presents Auction Event Benefiting Mission 22 And Veteran Families

Monday, August 29, 2022

Compass Auctions and Real Estate will be hosting an online auction featuring celebrity autographed items and exclusive firearms on Sept. 9 in support of Mission 22’s commitment to helping veterans and military families as they transition into life after the military. 

Memorabilia from country music stars Tim McGraw and Travis Tritt as well as NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino have been provided for the cause. There will also be two lots featuring a Sig Sauer pistol and an F1 Firearm available exclusively to Marine Corps veterans and families.

A portion of the auction proceeds will be used to support the commitment Mission 22 has made to the preservation of the physical and mental well-being of veterans and their families.

The auction opens on Sept. 9 at 12 p.m. and begins to close on Sept. 12 at 9 p.m.

"Compass Auctions employs several military veterans who have seen the front lines of battle. We value the service they have provided for us and for our country, but we also recognize that not all service members return home the same as when they left. Unfortunately, some of those men and women never came home, leaving behind a family to endure the tragedy of losing a loved one. Mission 22 provides mental and physical health resources for veterans and military families. We are proud to support Mission 22 and their commitment to our service members and their families," said officials. 

To view the full catalog of the auction and register for bidding, visit the Compass Auctions website.
