Chicago Motor Cars’ incredible multi-million dollar selection of high-end luxury cars and motorcycles will
form the backdrop for the gala grand opening of the dealership’s second showroom, the dealership says.
The event will feature fine food from area restaurants, a fashion show featuring cutting edge Chicago designers and leading boutiques, the 19-piece Marmion Academy Jazz Band and a silent auction. Proceeds from the exceptional selection of auction items and a suggested donation at the door of $40 per person will go to the Academy. Members of Chicago’s Lamborghini Car Club will
also participate in the celebration, set for Thursday, April 19, and hosted by Chicago Motor Cars’ owners, Parin Shah and Frank Sacco. The event runs from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Marmion’s Band will play from 6 to 7:15 and the fashion show will start in the showroom’s east room at 7:30. Stations throughout the facility at 27w333 North Avenue in West Chicago
“One of the best parts of a celebration is being recognized for accomplishments,” says Shah, “but we would rather partner with and support local businesses and give
back to the community.”
