When Stars And Cars Shine
Do you love cars? Do you love stars? Then perhaps the upcoming 2007 North American International Auto Show which will be held in Detroit would be the best time to rub elbows with the popular and very much known celebrities of the entire world.
There are people who go to the NAIAS to check out the newest Jeep vehicles clad in all its feisty Jeep auto parts glory. There are some who go to look for the freshest ideas on what vehicles would be best to purchase for themselves. But only a few do know that the NAIAS is also a chance to meet and greet the stars. This can happen during the auto show’s black-tie Charity Preview.
The NAIAS Charity Preview is not just about socializing and showing off just what you got and who goes with whom. The mentioned event is also a way for the auto show to earn cash which they would be donating to the Southeast Michigan children’s charities. In fact, the auto show is hoping to raise over million to do that. This activity is done annually as part of the NAIAS and the show has been able to help out many children’s charities in the area.
Robert Thibodeau is the senior co-chairperson for the whole NAIAS event this 2007 and he does say, “Charity Preview is the highlight of the NAIAS each year and definitely an event you don’t want to miss. Last year, there were many delightful surprises including a performance by R & B singer Ashanti, but nothing beats the smiles that come from the children who will be helped by the funds raised. Get your tickets fast – you don’t want to miss this magical evening.”
Carl Galeana is another co-chair of the NAIAS and he shares, “This year is especially exciting because we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the DADA. We’ve had 900 new ticket sales to the Charity Preview this year, which shows us that despite the economic climate people are still excited and anxious to see all that the NAIAS has to offer and to support hundreds of children across metro Detroit.”
