Along with actor Pierre-François Legendre returning as the spokesperson for the 5th consecutive year; representatives from the automobile industry from around the nation, artists, media, trendsetters, the business community as well car fanatics, all gather for this annual fundraiser to support 6 hospital foundations from the Greater Montreal Area.
