Auction items include an iPad2, Horseshoe Resort golf passes, skydiving lessons, car detailing packages, and theatre tickets. You can also bid on the opportunity to drive a Mazda MX5 convertible for a week. There are also numerous gift certificates from local attractions that will appeal to auto show guests of all ages.
“There are some amazing items up for auction, and we’re still accepting more,” says Paul Santaera, Director, Projects. “We’ve been really lucky to receive such amazing items from so many sponsors.”
All proceeds from the live auction go towards student scholarships for the Canadian Automotive Institute (CAI) at Georgian College.
Billed as the “largest outdoor auto show in North America,” the Georgian College Auto Show attracts 20,000-plus visitors each year from across southern Ontario. Organized by students attending Georgian’s CAI at the Barrie Campus, the show has something for everyone – from the classic car fan, to the high-powered sports car enthusiast, to the couple looking for the perfect new family vehicle.
The show will be open Friday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Daily admission is $7 for adults and free for kids 12 and younger. There is a new weekend rate of $15/person. Parking is included with admission. For more information, visit www.georgiancollegeautoshow.ca
