Thank-you for helping us raise $174,850! With over 540 show vehicles, over 10,000 spectators, 95 generous sponsors and over $180,000 of in-kind sponsorships, we are excited to announce the huge success of the 2017 Vancouver Island Motor Gathering!
The 2017 Motor Gathering is now a memory, but it lingers in our hearts and minds, due to the incredible generosity of our community. Without the support of donations, and the exclusive collection of valuable and beautiful vehicles on display, we could not have put together such an incredible show at the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit.
Thank you to all of our staff, sponsors, participants and the public, for their hard work and dedication towards making this event a huge success. We were pleased to contribute towards each of these organization’s goals: the Cowichan District Hospital to raise funds towards a new, much-needed hospital for the region; and the David Foster Foundation, which supports families of children in need of organ transplants.
“The Cowichan District Hospital Foundation is delighted to be a beneficiary of the motor gathering event again in 2017. The funds raised at this event will be dedicated to help bring a new hospital as expeditiously as possible. The motor gathering is a fantastic community event and we are so pleased to be a part of it.” Alison Taylor, board chair of the CDHF.
On behalf of David Foster, the Board of Directors, and all of the staff at the David Foster Foundation, I would like to congratulate GAIN Dealer Group on their success at the 2017 Vancouver Island Motor Gathering! Great work by the staff, sponsors, volunteers, and all participants.
It is wonderful to see such a prominent organization use their influence to benefit charities in their community. The David Foster Foundation is very grateful for the funds raised at the 2017 Vancouver Island Motor Gathering. The financial support that our Foundation receives directly impacts our families by giving them the opportunity to be by their child’s side when they are faced with the most stressful time of their lives.” Michael Ravenhill, Chief Executive Officer, David Foster Foundation.
To all our sponsors, thank you for your generosity; food, prizes, gifts, activities and more. We appreciate and proudly showcase all of our supporters, contributors and sponsors on our website. We want to share with the public the many individuals and companies who made such an impact on the event. They continue to show support and act as stewards of our great island community.
