At the GAIN Group we admire the passion and commitment that is invested in a special vehicle, and we are always interested in the story it represents. It will never be just a means of transportation, but rather a celebration and an experience. The automobile, in many cases, can be considered as legitimate twentieth century art. With this in mind we set out to organize an event to celebrate the owners, their cars, and their stories. It is because of that, we created the Vancouver Island Motor Gathering.
The Vancouver Island Motor Gathering was established in 2013 with 100 show vehicles, 1000 spectators and an incredible $52,000 raised to support our local charities. In the last 5 years, we have been able to grow the show to a level we never thought was possible. Now, with over 600 show vehicles, close to 12,000 spectators and over 90 local sponsors, we are incredible grateful to all of our generous volunteers, sponsors, partners and our amazing community supporters for helping us raise close to $600,000 in cash donations and over $800,000 in in-kind donations. Together, we can all make a difference.
The Concours d’Elegance events held at Amelia Island and Pebble Beach are highly regarded by enthusiasts. Over the next few years, we will strive to see the Motoring Gathering considered in similar terms, ultimately becoming one of the premier events in North America. Vancouver Island and the Pacific Northwest are home to a number of significant automobile collections, as well as individual owners in possession of historically significant automobiles. With the advantage of predictable summer weather, we look forward to seeing some of these cars at our future events.
