Miami, FL. (PRWEB) March 05, 2014
THE COLLECTION, South Florida’s premier luxury automotive dealership, was proud to donate a 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE to Miami Children’s Museum (MCM) for auction during their “Studio MCM” disco-themed extravaganza at the 2014 Be A Kid Again Gala on Saturday, March 1.
Considered by many to be one of the most entertaining events of the South Florida social season, the Be A Kid Again Gala took guests back to their youth to raise money for the exceptional educational programming that the museum offers. MCM is dedicated to enriching the lives of all children by fostering a love of learning through interactive exhibits, programs and classes.
Saturday’s fundraiser featured exceptional live entertainment, luxurious auctions and a culinary experience unlike any other. During the evening, MCM stepped back in time to the “Disco Era” and transformed into the hot nightclub “Studio MCM.” Guests celebrated exceptional educational programming at the museum and grooved the night away to an exciting performance by “The Boogie Knights The Complete Studio 54™ Tribute.” The most far out item showcased during the live auction? A 36 month lease on a 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE from THE COLLECTION.
“This is THE COLLECTION’s third year sponsoring the Be A Kid Again Gala,” said Ken Gorin, President and CEO of THE COLLECTION. “We thought that Jaguar was a perfect complement to this lively, playful and unique event. The F-TYPE is a true performance sports car and knows how to wow a crowd, just like Miami Children’s Museum wowed us at the gala!”
The Jaguar F-TYPE range features supercharged engines, lightweight aluminum body construction and advanced driving technologies to deliver an experience that is intuitive, instinctive and alive. There are four models in the F-TYPE range with its own distinctive characteristics: the F-TYPE, the F-TYPE S, the F-TYPE V8 S Convertible, and the F-TYPE R Coupe. The F-TYPE uses a “QuickShift” ZF® automatic transmission that is both lightning-fast and superbly refined. The F-TYPE’s lightweight aluminum body structure has high torsional rigidity, making it the ideal platform for a sports car. Balanced and capable, the F-TYPE has exceptional handling based on its inherent design, while the driver-focused interior combines intuitive technologies and functional ergonomics with a unique sporting style.
