Performance BMW Raises Over $1,300 for Kristen French CACN through Drive For The Future event

Performance BMW has raised $1,380 for the Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre Niagara (CACN) by holding an exclusive Drive For The Future event.

The fundraiser was held on June 8, 2017, and allowed people to experience the different trim levels of the all-new 5-Series sedan and to test drive BMW's exciting new lineup. For every test drive, Performance BMW made a $20 donation to Kristen French CACN.

A total of 83 people registered for the event and participated in 69 test drives. Guests also enjoyed exploring BMW vehicles via the large-screen interactive displays installed at the dealership, and also lined up to experience the store's new virtual reality system. They also received an exclusive $2,000 off a new BMW for their participation in the event.

The Kristen French CACN was the first stand-alone child advocacy centre to open in Canada in 2008, and provides all of Niagara's 12 municipalities with child-focused trauma support.

Performance BMW's organization of the Drive For The Future event is a part of Performance Auto Group's Drive Change initiative, which ensures that our organization gives back visibly to the communities which we serve.

"The United Way Golf Tournament is considered one of the top fundraising events in the entire region. It raises funds for over 74 essential United Way of St. Catharines and District programs, and helps the organization run critical projects for communities-in-need. The event also helps finance nearly every medical research organization in Niagara, including those for cancer and heart disease," he said.

Bill said the tournament has been managed and presented by Performance Auto Group for the last 24 years, and is a vital part of the group's Drive Change initiative. "This event exemplifies our company's long-standing commitment to support community initiatives. For over three decades, we have single-handedly managed, organized and promoted The United Way of St. Catharines and District Golf Tournament, and have helped raised around $865,000 to-date from this one event. We are all very proud of this, and hope to continue organizing this event in future," he said.

Vehicles on display included top-of-the-line luxury models from Performance BMW. The dealership showcased an M4 Coupe, an X4 M40i SUV, and a 340i xDrive Sedan. All three vehicles were very well received by everyone in attendance.
