"An evening with Jim Cuddy" in support of the YWCA Toronto
On Wednesday, November 23, 2016, the Downtown Automotive Group (DAG) proudly presented the acclaimed Canadian musical artist Jim Cuddy at the iconic Winter Garden Theatre in Downtown Toronto.
The event, which was attended by more than 400 people including DAG customers, vendors, automotive partners and DAG employees, was a resounding success raising funds which will go directly towards the YWCA Toronto Women's Shelters program.
Our corporate partners were instrumental to the success of the event and the results of the initiative that will be given to the YWCA Toronto.

Nissan To Sit Out Super Bowl 50:
Automaker Focusing on Massive College-Sports Effort
One year after returning to NFL Super Bowl advertising for the first time in 18 years, Nissan Motor Co. is back off the field. The company said Wednesday that it has decided to skip Super Bowl 50. Nissan joins Ford Motor Co. on the Super Bowl sidelines this year.
Nissan spokeswoman Jeannie Whited said the automaker is focusing this year on a different sports-marketing strategy and wants to put more resources into that campaign.
The new strategy, announced last November, makes Nissan an official sponsor of 100 colleges and universities around the country, and puts Nissan's name, logo and products onto college sports events for the next four years.
With the holidays upon us, we want to thank our clients and guests for making 2015 a great year. More importantly, it was the engagement within our community that made the year a success.
Whether the sponsorship of a kids little league team or a holiday food drive, being able to connect with our community was outstanding and we look forward to being even more engaged next year.
The entire team at Avenue Nissan wishes the best for the season and 2016.
