'All My Children': Josh Duhamel to auction off vehicle for hometown Minot, ND

Actor Josh Duhamel is continuing his plight to help the residents of his hometown, Minot, ND. The city was affected heavily by the recent flooding that destroyed the town.

The actor, who recently made an appearance on "All My Children" is teaming up with car auction company, Barrett-Jackson Auction Company, to raise funds to directly help relief victims of the flooding that devastated Minot and surrounding North Dakota communities. Duhamel will appear live on Las Vegas to auction off a 2006 recreation Shelby Cobra Re-Creation Roadster which is also signed by the actor.

The auction of the vehicle will take place during the Barrett-Jackson Auction, Saturday, September 24, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The event will be televised live on SPEED nationally and the Cobra is offered as a No Reserve vehicle. Duhamel is the honorary chairman for the Minot Area Recovery Fund, which helps Minot and the surrounding areas in its long-term flood recovery needs. Duhamel recently helped coordinate The Black Eyed Peas Minot Benefit Concert on September 3, at the North Dakota State Fair Grandstand, where he signed the replica Shelby Cobra. All proceeds from the sale of the vehicle will directly go to the Minot Area Community Foundation Recovery Fund.

Duhamel has publicly asked fans and celebrities to support the Minot area since the flooding began. He is already a member of the Red Cross' national Celebrity Cabinet, and has also worked to raise assistance for earthquake and tsunami victims in Haiti and Japan.

"As a former Minot resident with family still living in the city, including two sisters who have been displaced by floodwaters, it is extremely difficult to see the devastation caused by the flood," Duhamel said. "I am grateful Barrett-Jackson has come forward to donate their services and a company-owned vehicle to be auctioned at their upcoming Las Vegas event. Together we hope to raise as much money possible from the generous bidders at the Barrett-Jackson auctions."

Barrett-Jackson's 4th Annual Las Vegas Collector Car Auction returns to the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino September 22-24, 2011. In addition to the Shelby Cobra replica auction for the Minot Area Community Foundation - Recovery Fund, this three-day automotive lifestyle event will feature an assortment of customs, classics, exotics, Hot Rods, Resto-Mods and original collector vehicles available for purchase.

Look for Duhamel to appear in the final network episode of "All My Children" on Friday, September 23rd on ABC.
