VICTORIA, May 6, 2013 /CNW/ - Victoria Hyundai is pleased to announce that it 
will donate a brand new 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT in support of the BC Cancer 
Foundation at the annual Jingle Mingle, to be featured in the live

Automotive Journalists of Canada. This is the second year in a row that the
