VICTORIA, May 16, 2012 /CNW/ - Victoria Hyundai is pleased to announce that it will donate a brand new 2012 Hyundai Accent in support of the BC Cancer Foundation at the annual Jingle Mingle Silent Auction. The 2012 Hyundai Accent was voted as "Best New Small Car" by the Automotive Journalists of Canada.
The vehicle will be on display at BC Cancer Foundation fundraising and promotional events throughout the year. Each year, the BC Cancer Foundation hosts the Jingle Mingle to raise funds to support their ongoing initiatives. The Jingle Mingle is Victoria's premier fundraising event, last year raising almost $500,000 for local cancer efforts. The 2012 Jingle Mingle will be held on November 29, 2012 at the Fairmont Empress Hotel. At the Jingle Mingle Silent Auction held later in the year, the vehicle will be auctioned off and all proceeds will go to support the BC Cancer Foundation.
Bonnie Campbell, event chair notes that "the success of our efforts with 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 helping Victoria." Stephen Munro, General Manager at Victoria Hyundai is "thrilled to be able to take part in such a great event. Our business culture is that of building customers for life and putting people before profits. We are really happy to be able to let our actions define our commitment to this great community."
