"An evening with Jim Cuddy" in support of the YWCA Toronto

On Wednesday, November 23, 2016, the Downtown Automotive Group (DAG) proudly presented the acclaimed Canadian musical artist Jim Cuddy at the iconic Winter Garden Theatre in Downtown Toronto.

The event, which was attended by more than 400 people including DAG customers, vendors, automotive partners and DAG employees, was a resounding success raising funds which will go directly towards the YWCA Toronto Women's Shelters program.

Our corporate partners were instrumental to the success of the event and the results of the initiative that will be given to the YWCA Toronto.

With amazing music, delicious gourmet samplings and wine, the event demonstrated the community support for the YWCA Toronto Women's Shelters program and the deep commitment DAG has for the organization.

2015 B&O Yorkville Run 

For the past 3 years the Downtown Automotive Group has been a principal sponsor of the B&O Yorkville Run in support of YWCA Women's Shelters.

The YWCA Women's Shelter is for women and their children fleeing abuse. It provides a free, safe, caring home and the counseling and support women need to heal and plan for the future.

The 6th Annual B&O Yorkville Run took place on Sunday, September 13 at 9:45 AM and was an overwhelming success with all 1,000 spots for registration quickly taken up by participants, the energy in the air on that brisk September morning was electric.

The various DAG teams (Lexus Downtown, Downtown Toyota, Downtown Hyundai, Infiniti Downtown, Nissan Downtown, Toyota on Front, and Avenue Nissan) came together for this event and raised almost $63,000 for the YWCA Women's Shelters & other local groups in need of support.

Shahin Alizadeh, President & CEO of Downtown Automotive Group, presented the cheque to B&O co-owner Jordan Korenzvit - the creator of the run - with great pride saying that the funds raised from the event make a difference in the lives of many & that DAG is proud to be a leading partner of the run.

 

B&O Yorkville Run Benefit for the Toronto YWCA Women's Shelters

On Thursday, September 10th, Lexus Downtown hosted the B&O Yorkville Run Benefit in support of the Toronto YWCA Women's Shelters. The event brought together the supporters of this very worthy cause - one that, unfortunately, is in high demand.

While the B&O Yorkville Run (on Sunday September 13th) supports the same organization, this event allowed for additional contributions to be made not only by individuals but also by DAG vendors and corporate connections.

Molly Johnson, acclaimed Juno award winning jazz vocalist joined in the support of the YWCA Women's Shelters by sharing her gorgeous voice with those who attended.

Shahin Alizadeh, President & CEO of DAG (Downtown Automotive Group) spoke to attendees about his long-standing support of the community, of the YWCA in particular and how it gave him great pride that DAG was taking a leading role in this cause.

Heather McGregor, Executive Office of YWCA Toronto, spoke on behalf of the organization, stating that while it is a sad state that the Toronto YWCA Shelters are at capacity, it is extremely satisfying to know that there are so many companies and individuals who are supporting their very necessary services.

While the overall donations for the evening are still being tallied, the event was a success and it is expected that the overall target is within reach or possibly surpassed. Stay tune for more information on our fundraising success!
