After two years in the pit stop, the Charity Preview Gala — the prestigious pre-opening celebration of the annual Montreal International Auto Show — is back! The 2023 edition will be held on Thursday, January 19, at the Palais des congrès de Montréal.
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.
This Gala grants an exclusive VIP access to the Auto Show before the public.
The festive atmosphere offers an array of live musical performances and entertainment.
Some of the high points to enjoy on the menu: thematic food stations, open bar, and a handful of surprises; such as the highly-sought gift bag containing the 2023 Auto Guide.
Since it premiered in 2005, the Charity Preview Gala has donated more than $9.4 million to the health care community. An extraordinary amount of $908 700 in 2020 benefited 6 hospital foundations from the Greater Montreal Area.
