Subaru Canada, Toronto Subaru Club raise funds together for RMH Toronto at TSC 
Hyper Meeting 2013 
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Aug. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI), together 
with the Toronto Subaru Club (TSC), welcomed 600 Subaru enthusiasts during the 
TSC's Hyper Meeting 2013. The 10(th) annual event was held at Subaru Canada's 
head office in Mississauga, Ontario, on Sunday, August 11, as over 200 Subaru 
enthusiasts showcased their ride in the Show `n Shine. The event aims to raise 
funds for Ronald McDonald House (RMH) Toronto each year. While final numbers 
have not been tallied, SCI will match final fundraising efforts to help the 
event reach or exceed last year's donation of $20,000. 
The event began with a colourful parade of Subaru vehicles, representing an 
array of models, years and accessories. Master of ceremonies Mike Schlee (road 
test editor at AutoGuide) and special guest MC Ajay Fry (co-host of Space 
Channel's InnerSpace) alerted the crowds to the on-site entertainment and 
activities, including a charity dunk tank, RC car track as well as face 
painting and a bouncy castle for the youngest generation of Subaru supporters. 
This fun-filled family event also included food trucks - the Gourmet Bitches 
and Beach Boys - serving complimentary fare such as burgers and fries,

"This is the third year in a row that we've decided to make the day a 
family-friendly event," said Derek Serianni, president of the Toronto Subaru 
Club. "This is the largest event that the club organizes each year as well as 
one of the largest of its kind anywhere in the country. While it has taken a 
lot of hard work and planning over the past eight months, I have no doubt that 
it's our most successful Hyper Meeting to date, all for a great cause." 
"We're proud to support RMH Toronto," said Shiro Ohta, president and CEO of 
Subaru Canada, Inc. "In addition to events like this one, Subaru Canada is 
pleased to donate a vehicle to RMH Toronto for out-of-town families with 
seriously ill children to use during their stay at the House as well as 
sponsor a bedroom in the House. In keeping with tradition, Subaru Canada has 
matched the Toronto Subaru Club's fundraising efforts dollar-for-dollar in 
support of this very worthwhile cause." 
"Ronald McDonald House Toronto is honoured to be the charity of choice for 
both the Toronto Subaru Club and Subaru Canada, Inc." said Jen Jarvis, 
Development Officer at RMH Toronto. "We are truly grateful to be able to 
attend this event and watch support for the House grow each year. It means so 
much to us and the families who rely on the House. Congratulations TSC on 
another successful year! We can't thank you enough." 
Ronald McDonald House Toronto (RMH Toronto) is a "home away from home" for 
out-of-town families with seriously ill children receiving treatment at 
Toronto hospitals. Since 1981, the facility has been host to thousands of 
families in need of a comfortable atmosphere of compassion and understanding 
during a frightening and stressful time of their lives. Support from events 
like the TSC Hyper Meeting will help RMH Toronto provide families of seriously 
ill children with a safe and comfortable place to stay that is just steps from 
the hospital where their child is undergoing life-saving medical treatment. 
The Toronto Subaru Club (TSC) is an online forum dedicated to Subaru 
enthusiasts from Toronto and its surrounding areas. This community-oriented 
club hosts many events and meets as a way to socialize and mingle. Many of its 
events benefit its dedicated charity of choice, RMH Toronto. To learn more
