Over 500 Subaru Enthusiasts joined Subaru Canada, Inc. and the Toronto Subaru Club (TSC) on Sunday, August 17th for their Annual TSC #HyperMeet. The annual Hyper Meeting raises funds for Ronald McDonald House Toronto (RMH) and this year Subaru Canada matched the TSC raised total of $18,000 for the House, totalling $36,000.
ABOUT THE #HYPERMEET EVENT
The #Hypermeet in Mississauga is the largest of its kind anywhere in Canada, with a colourful parade of Subaru vehicles. It represents an array of models, years and accessories. Bring the whole family for some of their classic barbecue. Or enjoy the photo booth or the inflatable money machine with Subaru Bucks redeemable for Subaru merchandise. Games, face painting, colouring contest and mini r/c cars entertained the younger generation of Subaru lovers. For the second year in a row, AutoGuide road test editor Mike Schlee and Derek Serianni of the Toronto Subaru Club, acted as master of ceremonies. As a new feature for 2014, live music by Grand Line was performed throughout the event.
“This event isn’t just about the cars, it’s also about giving back to the community,” said Shiro Ohta, chairman, president and CEO of Subaru Canada, Inc.” In keeping with tradition, Subaru Canada has matched the Toronto Subaru Club’s fundraising efforts dollar-for-dollar in support of this very worthwhile cause.”
ABOUT RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE
Ronald McDonald House Toronto (RMH Toronto) provides a “home away from home” for seriously ill children and their families. RMH Toronto is a place for families to heal better together. Both in the 81-family capacity House in downtown Toronto and through the Family Room Program, this provides families with a medical-free space within a hospital to rest and retreat. All this while being only steps away from their ill child. Since 1981, the facility has been host to thousands of families. These families are in need of a comfortable atmosphere of compassion and understanding during a frightening and stressful time of their lives.
