CHICAGO AUTO SHOW CHARITY PREVIEW GUEST WINS PONTIAC FIREBIRD

 CHICAGO, Feb. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Friday, February 5th marked the second annual Charity Preview of the Chicago Auto Show. Approximately $350,000 was raised for Chicago area charities as guests were treated to a special evening of champagne, hors D'oeuvres, fine music, car gazing and even some star gazing.
 Some guests were lucky enough to see actress Shelley Fabares from the television series Coach, and former Bears head coach Mike Ditka.
 One guest, Blythe McGarvie of Libertyville was lucky enough to drive home in a brand new 1993 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am.
 Pontiac Motor Division graciously donated the car to be given away at the Charity Preview. John W. Middlebrook, vice president of General Motors and General Manager of Pontiac, along with Eddie Mize, 1993 Chicago Auto Show Chairman and a Pontiac dealer, drew the winning number.
 McGarvie, who is the chief administrative officer for Sara Lee Corporation and a member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago Board, was ecstatic about winning the car. Her comment was "This is great! I had a Pontiac for my first car!"
 The Pontiac Firebird Trans Am will be on display at the Chicago Auto Show, February 6 through February 14 at McCormick Place.
