When 90 vehicles and over 200 visitors poured into CSN Automacs lot on October 1st, 2023, it was obvious that something big was brewing.
In partnership with Porsche Club of America – Upper Region Canada [PCA-UCR], CSN Automacs recently hosted “Coffee & Cars”, a luxury vehicle event to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation Canada [MAWF].
MAWF Canada is a “wish-granting” organization serving children Canada-wide by granting life-changing wishes with hopes of inspiring the emotional and physical strength they need to overcome critical illness.
Located in Oakville, ON, CSN Automacs’ first car show, attracted Porsche owners from cities as far away as Peterborough and London ready to show off their luxury rides and support a valuable resource in pediatric healthcare.
Featuring a variety of Porsche models from a Porsche 911 GT2 Rs to the Porsche 911 Touring, there was a Porsche for every Porsche patron.
In an appeal to maximize donations, visitors had the opportunity to bid on high-end items and experiences through a silent auction. A signed Nylander jersey, tickets to a Leafs v Bruins NHL game and Exclusive Chef’s Experience for 2 were just some of the items on the auction block.
Vehicle enthusiasts were fueled with food from Burlington’s local food truck “Curbside Foods” while a DJ from Eminence Entertainment kept the crowd’s engines humming.
Raising over $5000 for MAFW Canada, the show was a huge success and CSN Automacs’ Location Manager, Santo Sarta could not be happier “It was such a pleasure seeing members of our Oakville community coming together for our first CSN Automacs Coffee and Cars event.”
Santo extends his gratitude to those who helped make this event possible, “Thank you to all the volunteers whose participation ensured the success of this initiative and thank you to our industry partners for your contributions to the silent auction. Our combined efforts mean we can give something back to the community. We are excited to be donating all proceeds to Make-a-Wish, an amazing foundation that is able to give back and help dreams come true.”
