For a 7th consecutive year, the auto industry is proud to offer its support to five (5) foundations, all working towards a common goal: preserving your health.

An enchanting evening!
In keeping with its previous editions, the 2011 Charity Preview, whose spokesperson was well-known comedian and car lover Lise Dion, was once again a tremendous success! The 3,500 attendees 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 and sport communities. 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 wines. New on the program this year, the Silent Auction was a real success and raised $16,425.

Mr. Carmine D'Argenio, 2011 Montreal International Auto Show President, is thrilled to continue this wonderful tradition. "For a 7th 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 Mr. D'Argenio during the evening.
