The Sneak Peek Charity Preview Party, one of the hottest tickets in town, is the official kickoff of the 2017 Portland International Auto Show (PIAS). Presented on Wed., Jan. 25, 6:30 – 9:30 pm, the event is resplendent with more than 500 new cars and trucks, many seen for the first time in the Northwest market.

The affair, now in its fourth year, has quickly risen to the top of the area’s must-attend charity events and benefits seven local charities: Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland, JDRF, Meals on Wheels People, and the Victory Academy. New charity beneficiaries this year are Brian Grant Foundation, The Dougy Center, and Self Enhancement Incorporated.

The charities do important work in the Portland community and the auto show is proud to support their efforts, says Greg Remensperger, executive director, PIAS.
“You can’t ask for a better neighbor in your community than an auto show or auto dealership,” says Remensperger. “The auto industry has always been generous, and we are pleased to help build awareness for these important service organizations, and provide necessary financial support.”

The Sneak Peek ticket price of $100 is 90% tax deductible and patrons may select which charity will receive their donation. To order tickets, visit the show web site,, click on Sneak Peek, and then click on ‘Buy Now.’

Sneak Peek provides hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, and full bar service on the auto show floor. Sponsored by new PIAS partner Eastside Distilling, Sneak Peek is a fun way to view the exciting new vehicles before the show opens to the public. As a bonus, each ticket holder will be entered into a new-car giveaway for a 2017 Audi A4, courtesy of Beaverton Audi. The drawing will be held at approximately 8pm at the auto show. Ticket holders need not to be present to win. Entrants Must be 18 years old and have a valid driver’s license to be eligible.
