MONTREAL, Jan. 15 /CNW Telbec/ - The Montreal International Auto Show (MIAS) Charity Preview evening, which took place January 14, 2010, helped raise $361,119.24 to benefit five (5) worthy causes within the Greater Montreal's medical community: Fondation du CHUM, Montréal Sacré-Coeur Hospital Foundation, MUHC - McGill University Health Centre Foundation, Pierre-Boucher Hospital Foundation and Santa Cabrini Foundation.

More than $1.8 million donated since 2005
Ever since it premiered back in 2005, the event has raised over $1.8 million for various foundations of the Greater Montreal's health care community. Now, for a 6th consecutive year, the auto industry is proud to offer their support to five (5) foundations, all working towards a common goal: preserving your health.
An enchanting evening!
In keeping with its previous editions, the 2010 Charity Preview, whose spokesperson this year was actor Raymond Bouchard for a 3rd consecutive year, 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 impressive door prizes, entertaining jazz music, as well as a deliciously refined buffet dinner, complete with a selection of fine wines.
Mrs. Carole Leblanc, 2010 Montreal International Auto Show President, is thrilled to continue this wonderful tradition. "For a 6th consecutive year, we are very proud to be able to support five (5) foundations whose hard work and dedication remain essential to the health and well-being of everyone within the Greater Montreal community," expressed Mrs. Leblanc during the evening.
