With all the changes in the new world we currently live in, Starlight children have it the hardest. Starlight Canada holds many different events for seriously ill children and their families throughout the year, where they get to enjoy a day of fun and laughter and leave the pain behind. For the past 7 years, one of these events was D4S.
Thanks to our participants, we have seen thousands of smiles around the track over the years! Sadly, this year we will not have the opportunity to hit the track with these amazing children. As they are immunocompromised, it is too dangerous and their safety is of the utmost importance.
That is why the Starlight team has come up with a new event called DRIVE-BY 4 SMILES! This one-day event is a Drive 4 Smiles spin-off! Rather than seeing the children smile in your car, you’ll get to see them smile from their front lawn!
We have invited Starlight families to sit on their lawn, get comfy, and enjoy a special drive-by of exotic cars.
Join us Sunday, October 4th 2020, as we hit the streets to drive-by the houses of Starlight’s seriously ill children who have been stuck at home in isolation for over 100 days!
The day begins with drivers being split into teams and following their Captain through different cities in Montreal, where you then will drive by Starlight children’s houses, wave hello, and see the smiles on their faces.
The afternoon wraps up with all drivers meeting together at the Orange Julep. From there, together, we will rev our engines entering the Royalmount Drive-In Event Theater, where hundreds of Starlight families will be waiting.
We will go into the evening with a film on the big screen, food trucks on-site, and a special show for all those who attend.
