Fundraiser to help sick kids comes with use of Mercedes-benz
Purchasing a ticket to a fundraiser taking place this weekend comes with a pretty nice fringe benefit; the chance to drive around in a Mercedes-benz for an entire weekend.
The Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation will host the Cars and Stars Fashion Show on April 14, and anyone who purchases a ticket will get a free weekend rental of a Mercedes-benz C-class sedan courtesy of the Mercedes-benz Silver Star dealership in Montreal. The cars usually rent for $200 a day. General Manager Rob Girouard said the offer is genuine, and the only thing people need to do is purchase a $50 ticket to the fashion show, taking place this Saturday. The West Island native said he simply wanted to help the local hospital that helps so many, including many people from the VaudreuilSoulanges region.
The event aims to raise money for the Lakeshore General Hospital’s pediatric clinic.
Organizers say they’re thrilled with the luxury car rental offer, noting it will most likely ensure that a lot of tickets will be sold.
Girouard says he has plenty of vehicles to accommodate would-be customers, who will only need to hold a valid driver’s license and fill out a rental contract form.
The Cars and Stars Fashion Show will be held at the Silver Star dealership in Montreal.
Television and radio personality Orla Johannes and rapper Malik Shaheed will share hosting duties. Other notable personalities featured as runway models during the event will include CTV news anchor Catherine Sherrifs, and radio personality Paul Karwatsky
There will also be a live performance by drummer-vocalist and MTV award winner Paul Lizzi. The evening event will begin with cocktails and a silent auction. The runway show, featuring fashions by Joseph Ribkoff, Dylan Ribkoff, Blush Lingerie, Furs by Holt Renfrew, Dinh Ba Design, Bogs Footwear, Mexx kids, SHAN, American Apparel and Boutique Europa, will get underway at 8p.m.
Silver Star Mercedes-benz is located at 7800, boulevard Décarie in Montreal.
