Smart sponsors two fundraising events in Toronto this weekend
Toronto, Ontario – Smart Canada will be sponsoring two fundraising events in Toronto this weekend, Fashion Cares and the Becel Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart.
Fashion Cares will celebrate its 20th anniversary at the Toronto Metro Convention Centre on Saturday, June 3rd; Smart will auction a Fortwo K-Motine created by French designer JC de Castelbajac, the only vehicle of its type in Canada, at the gala dinner to benefit the AIDS Committee of Toronto.
On June 4th, in a separate and unrelated event, a Smart Fortwo will lead thousands of cyclists and in-line skaters as the official pace car of the 19th annual Becel Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart. Several other Smart vehicles will be positioned at the rest station, health exposition area, and at the post-ride expo located in Exhibition Place. The pace car, decked out in the Becel Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart artwork, will be awarded for three months to the fundraiser who generates the greatest increase in their on-line pledges by June 5th.
