TORONTO, ON – (October 4, 2018) – Growing in size and spectacle each year, organizers are excited to share the success of the third annual FEARLESS motorcycle photography exhibit and silent auction in support of Diabetes Canada.
Following up on the incredible achievements of the first two events, the third annual instalment continued the momentum by raising $12,420 for Diabetes Canada. To date, the FEARLESS initiative has raised over $35,000 for the charitable organization thanks to the generous support of sponsors, volunteers and event attendees.
“We continue to be amazed by the generosity and enthusiasm of the FEARLESS team!” says Maria Petri, Ontario Regional Director of Diabetes Canada. “We sincerely appreciate all those who attended and supported this cause, continuing to benefit the eleven million Canadians living with diabetes or pre-diabetes." Lim’s son was diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes at a very young age, making Diabetes Canada a natural choice for a beneficiary to the exhibit’s proceeds.
Shot and curated by award-winning photographer Dan Lim / The Moto Foto, the exclusive one night exhibit, FEARLESS: Engrained, once again showcased a diverse selection of images from his distinctive body of work that personifies the passion and solidarity of the motorcycle community. This year’s one-of-a-kind prints were printed onto wood, creating a unique visual texture.
“The FEARLESS initiative, like the images being presented, is a celebration of the unity and positivity of the motorcycle community,” says Lim, “The solidarity and support shown for this cause that is near and dear to our hearts is beyond words.”
FEARLESS having grown and expanded, brought new elements to this year’s event, including a photo booth contest sponsored by Pfaff Harley-Davidson and Adrenaline Tattoo featuring the all-new Harley-Davidson FXDR 114.
“Solidifying itself as one of the must-attend events of the year, we’re happy to continue supporting this motorcycle-themed event that benefits such a worthy organization." says Pfaff Harley-Davidson General Manager, Chris Fox.
Hosted at District 28 in downtown Toronto, the evening featured an exclusive art exhibit and silent auction, and a Jumpstart motorcycle simulator care of Pfaff Harley-Davidson. Thanks to the generous assistance of sponsors and supporters, 100 percent of proceeds from the silent auction, raffle items and clothing go directly to Diabetes Canada.
“We are thrilled to be a sponsor of FEARLESS and support such a great cause in Diabetes Canada,” says Jeff Tate, Henry’s Vice President, Marketing and eCommerce, “We were captivated by the perfect marriage of passion, creativity and community involvement and were impressed by the enthusiasm of the attendees.”
