Prior to 2005, the Montreal International Auto Show (MIAS) held a Gala Evening reserved exclusively for people in the automotive industry. Starting with the 2005 Edition of the MIAS, the Gala event was transformed into a chic and philanthropic evening called the Charity Preview Evening. Since then, the event has raised more than $8 million for the hospital foundations of the Greater Montreal Area.
This year a record amount of $1,024,289 was raised and donated to benefit six (6) worthy causes within the medical community.
The Charity Preview Evening has become the major event in Montreal for the month of January. Moreover, the event has been sold out for two years in a row now and more than 5,000 people have the ultimate privilege of discovering the many new innovations in the auto industry, and this, in a dazzling atmosphere, enhanced by a gourmet buffet and selection of fine wines, door prizes, draw of a great trip as well as a silent auction for all tastes and budgets. Attendees met and mingled with some of the auto industry’s biggest names along with well-known personalities from Quebec’s political and artistic communities. In short, everything is done to offer guests a memorable experience.
For the 15th consecutive year, the Auto industry was proud to offer its support to six (6) foundations, all working towards a common goal: preserving your health.
