More than $1,100,000 raised by the Montréal International Auto Show Charity Preview



    MONTREAL, Jan. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - The Montréal International Auto Show
(MIAS) Charity Preview evening, which took place this past January 17, helped
raise over $417,000 to benefit five worthy causes within the Greater
Montreal's medical community: the Montréal Sacré-Coeur Hospital Foundation,
the Sir Mortimer B. Davis - Jewish General Hospital Foundation (JGHF), the
Pierre-Boucher Hospital Foundation, the Centre hospitalier de l'Université de
Montréal Foundation (CHUM) and the McGill University Health Centre Foundation
(MUHC). This fund raising event was presented and sponsored by the Montreal
Automobile Dealers Corporation Foundation and the Palais des congrès de
Montréal.

    More than $1,100,000 donated since 2005

    Ever since it premiered back in 2005, the event has raised over
$1,100,000 for various foundations of the Greater Montreal's health care
community. Now, for a fourth consecutive year, Auto Show organizers are proud
to offer their support to five foundations, each working towards improving the
state of health care in the Greater Montreal's medical community... Each
dedicated to your health!

    An enchanting evening!

    In keeping with its previous editions, the 2008 Charity Preview, whose
spokesperson this year was actor Raymond Bouchard, was once again a tremendous
success! Attendees to the evening were able to feast their eyes on some of the
crown jewels of the automotive industry before the auto Show opened to the
public, and got to mingle with some of the auto industry's biggest names along
with well-known personalities from Quebec's artistic community. The event was
enjoyed by all, taking place in a relaxed atmosphere and featuring wonderful
door prizes, entertaining jazz music, as well as a deliciously refined buffet
dinner, complete with a selection of fine wines.
    2008 Montréal International Auto Show President Marc Bourassa is thrilled
to continue this wonderful tradition. "Over the past four years, the money
raised has greatly helped support Montreal's medical community," expressed Mr.
Bourassa during the Charity Preview. "Once again this year, we are very proud
to be able to help five foundations whose hard work and dedication remain
essential to the health and well-being of everyone within the Greater Montreal
community."

    The Montréal International Auto Show is organised by the Montréal
Automobile Dealers Corporation (MADC).
