Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada: Karen Davidson, Kristin Booth, Sass Jordan, and More to Walk Pink Carpet at Precious Metal Gala

So You Think You Can Dance Canada's Miles Faber and Toronto Salsa Legend Albert J. Gomez to Produce Entertainment

CONCORD, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 22, 2010) - A successful month of March saw thousands of empowered women overcome their inhibitions about motorcycling, at over 60 women-only Garage Party™ events hosted across Canada by authorised Harley-Davidson® Retailers. Now, enterprising and inspired women attending Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada's second annual Precious Metal Gala will experience an evening filled with edgy entertainment and interactive biker-chic-themed activities showcasing the unique experience that only the iconic Harley® Brand offers. This decadent gala aims to raise money for Rethink Breast Cancer, and will take place at the Fermenting Cellar in the Distillery District on Tuesday, May 11 from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m.

This ladies-only gala will start with a personal welcome by Karen Davidson* (Creative Director, General Merchandise for Harley-Davidson Motor Company, and great-granddaughter of the Company's co-founder William A. Davidson), and will allow guests to mingle with other prominent, playful, and passionate women, including Nadia Litz (Blindness), Kristin Booth (Defendor), Sass Jordan (Juno Award-winning singer/songwriter), Tara Slone (Juno Award-nominated singer), and host of the evening Billie Holiday (Virgin Radio), just to name a few.

Just announced So You Think You Can Dance Canada's Miles Faber and Toronto salsa legend Albert J. Gomez will produce and choreograph a special, one-of-a-kind performance for the evening show-casing, amongst others, the talent of several top contestants from So You Think You Can Dance Canada. The sexy show will captivate guests with features from popular musicals such as Dirty Dancing, Grease, and more.

Guests of the gala will learn more about the Harley-Davidson® Brand and how easy it is to get into motorcycling. With interactive opportunities such as action-style biker photo and video shoots on new 2010 Harley-Davidson® motorcycles, guests will get a taste of the "real thing". Guests will earn bragging rights by testing their metal at the motorcycle lift while learning the technique of effortlessly picking up a bike from the ground. In addition to all of this action, guests will be welcome to browse the Precious Closet, featuring the new Harley-Davidson® Pink Label collection, to bid on one-of-kind items at the silent auction, and to enjoy hair and make-up artistry – all of which will be complemented by delectable hors d'œuvres served alongside exquisite drinks.

Tickets to the Precious Metal Gala are available to the public for $75 at www.garageparty.ca.

* Karen Davidson will be available for interviews upon request.
