First Look for Charity marks its 18th edition on Feb. 12

First Look for Charity, the Chicago Auto Show's black-tie event, marks its 18th edition on Feb. 12. The charity preview, which benefits more than 18 local organizations, has raised more than $2.5 million each of the past four years and more than $26 million since its 1992 debut.

"As a Chicagoland new car dealer, I am particularly proud of First Look for Charity and the money we've been able to raise for very worthwhile groups," said Mark Scarpelli, show chairman.

"Our area dealers have demonstrated a century of community involvement, and this special night speaks volumes about how they care for those who are in need," Scarpelli continued.

Scarpelli, a Chevrolet and Kia retailer, has arranged for a 2010 Camaro and a 2009 Borrego to be awarded to two benefactors at the event.

Sales of the Camaro began in the first quarter of 2009 and will be new to most of the expected 12,000 attendees. The all-new, seven-passenger Borrego delivers a midsize SUV class-leading towing of 7,500 pounds on the strength of a best-in-class 337 horsepower.

The Camaro is compliments of Chevrolet Motor Division and the Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana Chevy dealers. The Borrego is compliments of your Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana Kia retailers.
