About Cars For A Cause

Cars for a Cause began in 2019 after the loss of a close family member and friend who struggled with his mental health. With so many members of the car community – and many of our own friends and family – struggling with their mental health, we saw an opportunity to turn a tragedy into something positive. We wanted to do something to help raise awareness, so we decided to start organizing our first event to generate proceeds for the Canadian Mental Health Association. In addition to raising funds for mental health, we also gave people an outlet to talk to someone and simply see they are not alone. After seeing the success of our first event, we wanted to continue bringing the car community together to help more local non-profit organizations.

Since 2019, we have raised nearly $50,000 for local mental health initiatives, with over $17,000 raised for youth mental health at our 2022 event. We look to build on this momentum to raise additional funds for non-profit organizations in need within our local community.

Our mission is to generate necessary funds for community mental health initiatives while providing a fun and exciting event for members of the Windsor-Essex car community to participate in.
