Thank-you for helping us raise $174,00! With over 540 show vehicles, over 10,000 spectators, 95 generous sponsors and over $200,000 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 due to the incredible generosity of the community. Without the support of donations, or 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. With over $174,850 in cash donations and over $200,000 of in-kind donations, 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
To all our sponsors, we thank them for their 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 towards our great island community.
Congratulations to the Vancouver Island Region - Porsche Club of America for their beautiful display at the Vancouver Island Motor Gathering! They won the Best Car Club Display award at the show and will receive a 1/2 track day at the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit. It was great to see the club out there representing Porsche and we can't wait to see them in action at the track!
Planning and organization for the 7th Annual 2018 Vancouver Island Motor Gathering is currently underway and returns to the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit, Sunday, August 26, 2018.
Mark your calendars! As this event continues to grow, we look forward to having you again as our guest to help the foundations and to support our growing community.
