All in all, its shaping up to be an awesome event with some fantastic donations for the raffle. That's all for now! Have a great weekend!

Hello everyone. What a fantastic day it turned out to be!
Just a final update and a request for feedback if you attended (as an exhibitor or car owner) the GTALx 2019 - Mopar social/charity event supporting PCAS sponsored by Authentic Performance

The show was a huge success with approximately 226 cars attending (based on 24 out of 250 goody bags remaining) and the attendees raising an astounding $4770 for the folks at Peel Children's Aid Foundation (PCAF)!

Mother Nature must have a soft spot for the event because she held the rain off and gave us warm weather and sunshine for the day! We had great sampling of members from a number of the south western Ontario Mopar oriented social media enthusiast groups and hope to see more members from each group attend next year. We also had people travel from as far as Indiana and Montreal to attend the event. Thank you for coming so far! We also had TV coverage from a local south Asian news network, (ZeeTV I think) and the broadcast is supposed to happen on Monday sometime. Not sure how they got wind of the event but was honored that they sent someone to cover the event. I am trying to acquire additional details and will post soonest.

On behalf of myself, and the folks at PCAF, I’d like to thank the organizations listed below, the volunteers who helped manage the chaos, and also a heartfelt thanks to all of the attendees for a fabulous day!
