About Drive of Champions

Drive of Champions stands out as a unique fundraiser co-hosted by the Calgary Police Youth Foundation (CPYF) and Trellis Society.

This is no ordinary car show, it’s a show-stopping event with a great cause, where all car enthusiasts can participate and youth will experience a ride of a lifetime! Proceeds from Drive of Champions go directly towards benefiting children and youth in Calgary, fostering stronger and safer communities. Together, CPYF and Trellis Society strive to engage youth in a meaningful and intentional way to empower their lives to drive dreams while fostering a community of empathy, understanding and support where everyone can thrive.

Drive of Champions 2024 has three main components:

Dazzling Cocktail Reception

Experience a dazzling cocktail reception at Spruce Meadows, where you can display your incredible vehicle, mingle with car enthusiasts, and join in an exhilarating auction, all in support of children and youth in our city.

Drive Day Event

Morning – September 21, 2024

Specially selected children and youth will have the experience of a lifetime as a VIP co-pilot during our Drive Day event. Joining over 100 stunning vehicles, they will each be paired with one of our drivers for an unforgettable ride to our exclusive pit-stop location and back.

Spectacular Show & Shine

Afternoon – September 21, 2024

Once our co-pilots and drivers return to Spruce Meadows, members of the public will be invited to join us for a spectacular Show & Shine event where they can meet the drivers, take photos of the cars, and enjoy the scenery at stunning Spruce Meadows. 


Drive of Champions is a fundraiser that supports two incredible organizations – Trellis Society and the Calgary Police Youth Foundation. Funds raised directly benefit children and youth in Calgary, fostering stronger and safer communities.

Trellis Society is a registered charity that works with people of all ages and backgrounds who are affected by homelessness, poverty, social isolation, mental health barriers, and intergenerational trauma. Through services ranging from housing to community hubs, child development to employment readiness, cultural connection to clinical services, Trellis Society strives to make a generational impact and grow a community where everyone can flourish.

The Calgary Police Youth Foundation engages the community in ensuring every child and youth can live free from the influence of crime. CPYF provides leadership and funding to 9 crime prevention, education, and early intervention programs, delivered by the Calgary Police Service and other partners. These programs raise awareness and empathy for young people affected by crime, offering critical support and guiding them toward a brighter future.


Drive of Champions would not be possible without the generous support of the community. Over the course of two days, the Calgary Police Youth Foundation and the Trellis Society will host a stunning cocktail reception, an engaging public show and shine, and a spectacular drive day event.

Each of these events presents an incredible opportunity to showcase your business or organization to the Calgary community, while supporting two charities dedicated to helping children, youth, and vulnerable individuals in our community.
