ANOTHER CHARITY HIT — There’s a new high seller! Lot 3001 is a 1957 Lincoln Continental Mark II and the second charity car of the day and it sells for an astonishing $700,000. There isn’t a dry eye in the house as Kimie Metcalf, an 8 year-old cancer survivor and patient at the Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital, talked to the crowd. “Doctors gave me only a 30 to 40 percent chance of surviving,” Kimmie said. “Well, here I am!” Every penny of the sale goes to Loma Linda. Tears flow freely in the crowd after hearing Kimmie speak.
