VICTORIA, May 6, 2013 /CNW/ - Victoria Hyundai is pleased to announce that it will donate a brand new 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT in support of the BC Cancer Foundation at the annual Jingle Mingle, to be featured in the live auction. The 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT was voted as "Best New Small Car" by the Automotive Journalists of Canada. This is the second year in a row that the dealership has gifted a vehicle in support of the BC Cancer Foundation.
Throughout the year, the vehicle will be on display at BC Cancer Foundation fundraising and promotional events. On December 5, 2013 the vehicle will be auctioned off at Jingle Mingle to raise funds in support of life-saving cancer research at the BC Cancer Agency. Jingle Mingle is Victoria's premier fundraising event, last year raising an astounding $1,000,000 for local cancer research efforts.
Doug Nelson, President of the BC Cancer Foundation notes that "the success of the BC Cancer Foundation could not be had without the support of local organizations like Victoria Hyundai. This is a great example of local Victorians supporting cancer patients and their families in their own community."
Stephen Munro, Dealer Principal at Victoria Hyundai is "thrilled to be able to take part in such a great event. This is a cause that touches us all, and we are lucky to have the best research and treatment programs in the world right here in our own backyard. The BC Cancer Foundation and their partners at the BC Cancer Agency work every day not just for a cure, but also to replace our fears with hope. We couldn't be more proud to be a part of that."
