GTALx brings Greater Toronto’s modern Mopars together for charity

by Patrick Rall on

If you are a modern Mopar fan who in in the Greater Toronto Area, or if you live within driving distance of that area, you want to plan a trip to the Heart Lake Conservation Area in Brampton, Ontario on June 1st. For the fifth straight year, Mopar owners in the Greater Toronto Area (and some US states) are gathering at the massive event for a greater cause than just bringing together the Mopar community – with the proceeds going to charity.

The GTALx annual event is held by modern Mopar fans and owners, but it is open to owners of classic Chrysler Group products as well. In fact, event organizer Bryan Minhinnett mentioned that he hopes to see more classic cars joining the huge crowd of modern Mopars, so if you love Mopars and you can make it to Toronto on June 1st, this is an event that you want to check out.

While there is technically no charge to register your Mopar to display, nor is there any cost for spectators, the event is being held in a park with general admission. However, it is minimal, with adult tickets being $6.50, seniors are $5.50 and kids under 15 are $4.00.

Once there, you will find hundreds of Mopars on display, with around 200 vehicles in attendance last year and even more expected for this year’s event. There will also be food for purchase from Fire It Up BBQ and Donkey Kone ice cream, along with a big spread of displays from the following vendors and event supporters.

Authentic Performance – Primary event sponsor
M1 Modular (tool storage solutions)
Kaption Audio Canada (car audio)
Don Brown Apparel (auto enthusiast clothing)
Vinyl Wrap Toronto (auto wrap services)
Mill Finish Industries
PJ’s Auto Shine (Adams detail products)
MorePower Performance
Prostate Cancer Canada Network
Brampton Fire Services will be there with a firetruck
Peel Regional Police will be there with a squad car

There will also be a raffle with over $10,000 in prizes including a full SOLO catback system, two StreetEdge coil over kits, $1500 in Billet Technology gift certificates and donations from Legmaker Intakes, AAD, TeamHellcat and more. The raffle is fully handled by the official charity of the event, the Peel Children’s Aid Society (PCAS). Over the past three years, this event has raised nearly $10,000 for that group, with a gradual increase in the contribution value over each of those years.

The GTALx event begins on the 1st at 10am and runs through 3pm.
