Ontario Honda Dealers press release
TORONTO (May 10, 2011) Ã¢â‚¬â€œ To help racing fans and those new to the sport enjoy the speed, sound and excitement of IndyCar racing, the Ontario Honda Dealers Association (OHDA) will underwrite the cost of admission for everyone to the opening day of racing at the 2011 Honda Indy Toronto, Friday, July 8 . This is the second year that OHDA has offered this promotion, which includes an important fundraising component to benefit Make-A-WishÃ‚Â® Canada.
Visitors who attend the Honda Indy Toronto on Free Friday are asked to give a donation to Make-A-WishÃ‚Â® Canada volunteers upon entering in lieu of admission, which Honda Canada will match dollar-for-dollar. Last year, more than $112,000 was raised over the two-weeks of IndyCar racing in Canada (Toronto and Edmonton) to help make wishes come true for Canadian children living with life-threatening medical conditions.
