    Ferrari Dream Drive
    Charity drive benefitting the Montreal Children's hospital Foundation

    The Quebec chapter is organizing an event for which your support is essential. Sunday, September 7th, the Club would like to offer children treated at the Montreal Children’s Hospital the extraordinary occasion to ride in a Ferrari. The little patients and their drivers will make their way around Montreal on board a Ferrari thus realizing a dream for many of them.

    New this year, in conjunction with The Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation, the children will get the added treat of attending an organized tour of the Bell Centre, home of the storied Montreal Canadiens!

    How can you help?

    We need drivers and sponsors for this unique event. Please donate your time, money or both! All proceeds from the event will go to The Montreal Children’s Hospital. The event has provided close to 200 rides and has raised over $250,000 over the past five years!

    If you are interested in participating, please contact Domenic at (514) 284-8284 or
    domenic.durante@mac.com

    If he can't come, tell him to pass his car to his son. :p

    It'll be like a "trust" exercise. ;)

    I wouldn't quite say fail. :(

    Unfortunately we couldn't park for the afternoon in front of the Bell Center, so if you got there anytime after 11 AM, the cars were already in the Center's underground parking.

    So here's what ya'll missed.

    BTW, (as usual) it was always a pleasure to meet fellow F-chatters, and put a face to the username.

    I got to the bell center at 11:10 and called Manny because i didn't see anything happening, he had told me everyone had left already. Can't have been that well organized if you couldn't even display the cars in front of the bell center.

    BTW, nice pics bernie. Thanks for posting them for those that didn't manage to see the cars. Looks like a decent turn out. How many Fcars were there in total?

    At that time, we were all touring the Bell Center.
    Again, it was unfortunate that the city by-laws prohibited us from parking in front of the Bell Center. Granted, we could have tried to get the permits, but trust me, dealing with the city is a PITA
    26 I think.

    shame that i missed it.
    was hoping that you guys would park in the parking lot in front of the bell center.

    glad to see some smiles on the kids faces.
    kudos for a great cause

    oooops... sorry about that Stef... after the group pic, i ... REALLY had to go.. (got the stomach flew, plus bumpy ride in a 512TR didn't agree with my stomach... lol)... when i got out...everyone was gone.

    other than that, I am really jealous of the cars that got the Montreal canadians windshield logo....

    Francis, the pleasure was mine. I hope to meet you at another FCA event in the near future.

    Manny....your car is just too bloody loud!!! How loud you ask??

    ...I couldn't hear my passenger when she would speak to me.

    BTW....your *cough* guest was quite the eye candy. ;)
