Media Advisory/2008 Cento Miglia Rally: On Your Marks, Get Set...Give!

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 19, 2008) - Be among the first to meet the teams taking part in the 2008 edition of the Cento Miglia rally and get a close-up look at all the Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, Alfa Romeos and other super cars participating in the July 5 event. The 100-mile journey, inspired by the legendary Mille Miglia rally in Italy, will feature exotic luxury cars navigating through the streets of Greater Montreal to a secret location.

The Cento Miglia, presented by the Fondation Communautaire Canadienne-Italienne (FCCI), is a unique philanthropic initiative created to raise funds for the Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation, the Sainte-Justine Hospital Foundation and other charitable endeavours of the FCCI. Last year, over $315,000 was donated on behalf of this popular event.

Patients from both pediatric hospitals will be on hand during the promo cocktail event to thank the organizers and, most importantly, have a seat inside the dream cars for themselves! Rally organizers, as well as local celebrities like Aaron Rand, Patrice Brisebois and Mitsou, will also be there to meet and greet the children.

WHAT: Italian-style cocktail for the 2008 Cento Miglia

WHEN: Thursday, June 19 at 6:00 PM
