Toronto, Ontario – A silent auction of F1 memorabilia in Toronto on September 16 will benefit victims of the April earthquake in Italy through Toyota driver Jarno Trulli’s “Abruzzo in the Heart” foundation.

The auction, which will be held at the Windsor Arms Hotel, will include donations from F1 drivers representing nearly every team on the grid, and will be hosted by Ben Mulroney of eTalk Canada.

“This event was the brainchild of Jarno Trulli,” said Ted Dobrzynski, president of F1Play Inc. “Through his generosity and the help of many drivers on the grid, we hope to raise upwards of $25,000 at the auction for the earthquake victims.”

The auction will be held during the Toronto International Film Festival. For more information, visit Film Fashion F1.
