The 2013 Vancouver Island Motor Gathering, presented by the German Auto Import Network (GAIN), raised $52,821 for Children's Health Foundation! Sincere thanks to the car owners, sponsors, and spectators for supporting the event and helping to purchase much needed therapeutic equipment for kids with special health needs on the Island.
About the Event
The Vancouver Island Motor Gathering attracted hundreds of cars and thousands of spectators. Rain stayed away with the exception of three short downpours, which the thousands of specators and car owners bore with good humour. The Queen Alexandra grounds were packed with people mingling among fabulous cars of all colours, makes, and models, while listening to live music by Shaky Ground and enjoying a delicious BBQ and popcorn, candy floss, and Wannawaffles.
Kids had a great time getting their faces painted with the likes of Batman, Hello Kitty, and sparkly butterflies and experiencing the freedom of driving a car for the first time in Tom Thumb Pedal Cars. The hay ride, bouncy castle, and radio operated cars were a hit!
