Area 27 ‘Cars for a Cause’ teams with OSNS to offer track experience


A wide array of high-end sports vehicles will be racing to help children of our region on August 1. Teaming up for the first time, Area 27 and The OSNS Child and Youth Development Centre are thrilled to announce that registration for the Cars for a Cause Event has now opened.

The event is a chance for the public to get in on the world-class motorsport venue and experience racing action at the exclusive track designed by F1 legend Jacques Villeneuve. The day offers an array of activities which – most exciting - includes co-pilot rides on the track! For those who have dreamed of hitting Area 27 at high speeds, this is your chance! Area 27 members are generously donating their time and luxury cars to provide a co-pilot experience to those seeking a thrill. Track spots include time to meet your certified driver and admire your chosen sports car, twenty mins of adrenaline on the track, a clubhouse reception entry, swag and a drink ticket.

Co-pilot rides are not the only thing happening at the track. Typically this luxury motorsports club is off-limits to the public, but on this day, everyone is invited to come down. The grounds will be lined with sponsors showcasing their hottest fleets of sports cars, watercrafts, motorbikes, RV’s and more! The all-day event will appeal to anyone curious about cars, motors, speed and adrenaline. If getting behind a wheel is the feel of the day, guests can pop over to Kartplex the soon to be opened go-carting track located at Area 27 to race!

This amazing benefit for OSNS gets underway at 10:30 a.m. when the first passengers load up for take-off. The day caps off with a clubhouse reception reserved for ticket holders only. The aim – to raise more money and celebrate this day. 

For 40 years, The OSNS Child & Youth Development Centre has been supporting children and youth throughout the South Okanagan. Specializing in the treatment of developmental challenges, the Centre sees over 1600 children annually. The aim: that all children will reach their full potential.

Every ticket purchase supports our work with children. The OSNS team is tremendously grateful to Area 27 community members who have come together in generous support. Please join us on August 1st!
