Portland, OR. The sneak peek party for the Portland International Auto Show raised funds for seven local charities: Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland, Brian Grant Foundation, The Dougy Center, JDRF, Meals on Wheels People, the Victory Academy and Self Enhancement, Inc. (SEI). Revenue from the $100 tickets benefited the preferred charity of the ticket purchaser. Organizers say last year, the auto show at the convention center raised over $500,000 for the charities. Guests at the January 25th event had a “VIP Sneak Peek” of 600 of the best production, exotic and concept vehicles and technologies including the Acura NSX, one of only a few in the country.

Here’s a video about the event:

The charities do important work in the Portland community and the auto show is proud to support their efforts, says Greg Remensperger, executive director, of the show. “You can’t ask for a better neighbor in your community than an auto show or auto dealership,” says Remensperger. “The auto industry has always been generous, and we are pleased to help build awareness for these important service organizations, and provide necessary financial support.”
