Portland, OR. The Portland International Auto Show reports it has donated nearly three million dollars to local charities over the past five years through the proceeds from its show and the Sneak Peek Charity Preview Party. Again this year, 100% of the $100 ticket for the preview party benefited one of local eight charities. The party on January 23rd drew hundreds of car lovers including Bart Hafeman from the band, Hit Machine. He was right at home in a 2019 Corvette Stingray. There were over 600 vehicles from 35 manufacturers at the show including production, exotic and concept vehicles.
