A limited 1-of-700, 2003 Ford Thunderbird donated by James Bond producer Michael G Wilson. Sold to raise funds for the Pioneers Assistance Fund.
This 007 Limited Edition Ford Thunderbird was created by Ford Motor Company to commemorate the car's appearance in the 2002 James Bond film Die Another Day. The funds raised in this single-lot auction will go to towards The Pioneers Assistance Fund.
The Pioneers Assistance Fund provides financial aid to theatrical entertainment veterans of exhibition, distribution and vendors exclusive to either sector who are encountering an illness, injury or catastrophic event. Since 1939, the Pioneers Assistance Fund has had one mission — take care of industry veterans in their time of need.
The Fund has provided assistance to thousands over the years and always with respect and dignity for the recipient, as well as, maintaining the individual’s anonymity. The Fund is the only program in our industry that provides both short and long-term assistance to lifelong veterans of the motion picture industry who are sick, elderly, disabled or a victim of an unfortunate circumstance. Whether it’s the widow of a long-time exhibitor who just needs help paying for her medications, a theatre manager dealing with an untimely illness or a former studio employee who has had an unfortunate circumstance — all receive assistance.
The Thunderbird will be on view at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles on Wednesday 21st September at a dinner honouring Michael G Wilson & Barbara Broccoli.
