Cars for Smiles Barcelona 2017: a truly unforgettable day full of joy, sensations, solidarity, speed and excitement, collecting € 5,000 for the ARI Project.
For yet another year we bring together 50 co-pilots and 50 drivers, departing from the spectacular W Hotel in Barcelona to the Barcelona – Catalunya circuit.
And, as in previous years, we were accompanied by Dani Clos – a racing diver, Xavier Foj from Foj MotorSport – champion and veteran of the Paris to Dakar, and Albert Luque the footballer, to who we send our thanks for finding a space in their agendas to come with us on a very special day.
Our young co-pilots enjoyed the experience of riding in their super car along with its driver, who, in many cases, brought yet another gift for their co-pilots, one that they will surely hold with great affection. A nice gesture that, for sure, they will never forget!
Additionally, thanks to the inscription fees of the drivers, we were able to deliver a check of 5,000 Euros to Dr. Urbano of the Hospital Clínic of Barcelona, funds that are destined for the ARI Projecte; the same initiative that we already supported in our 2016-2017 event in Barcelona; of which we are very proud and grateful to Ariana Benedé, its founder and promoter who, after a long struggle against leukemia, unfortunately left us. Thanks to her initiative, patients are already benefiting from the new therapy and have been cured.
Our most profound respect and admiration goes first of all to Ariana, with who we were able to share our Barcelona 2016 edition, and also to her family and medical team who are involved in this project. Many thanks!
