Fun­drai­ser to help sick kids comes with use of Mer­cedes-benz

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

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.
