Brampton Auto Mall Takes Centre Stage at Canada 150 Celebrations, Donates New Sedona to BMOW
Brampton Auto Mall has celebrated Canada’s 150th birthday in style with a day-long celebration in Brampton’s Chinguacousy Park, and has donated the use of a brand new Kia Sedona to Brampton Meals on Wheels (BMOW).
The celebration saw Performance Auto Group employees from the Auto Mall set up a highly visible presence in the park and entertain over 100,000 people. They sponsored the main Community Stage and the Community Zone at the event, and organized numerous fun activities inside their bright red tent to commemorate Canada Day.
The team arranged a special appearance by Canadian comic book superhero Captain Canuck, who proved very popular with all attendees.
The tent also featured the well-known Plinko game, made popular by The Price is Right television show. The game proved extremely popular with attendees of all ages and was played by thousands, with 40 to 50 people waiting in line to play throughout the day.
Another highlight of the event was the donation of a brand new 2017 Kia Sedona to BMOW. The vehicle was presented to BMOW President Amanda Blaber on the main event stage after an introduction by Mayor of Brampton Linda Jeffrey, and was met with immense appreciation by everyone present. Performance Auto Group Director of Marketing Drew Delaware represented the Group and presented the keys.
The Community Stage sponsored by the Brampton Auto Mall showcased numerous impressive acts throughout the day, including multiple dance and musical performances and the official unveiling of the Muskoka Chair Project. The Community Zone also featured fun family activities like arts and crafts, a meet and greet with a Disney princess, a show by LED Wand Performers, and free cupcake and water stations.
Brampton Auto Mall’s sponsorship of the Canada 150 celebrations in Chinguacousy Park is a part of Performance Auto Group’s ‘Drive Change’ initiative, which ensures that our organization gives back visibly to the communities which we serve.
