TORONTO — Anticipation was running high on the eve of the IMSA Michelin Pilot Sportscar Championship Race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Ontario. But the upcoming high-stakes competition on the legendary track wasn’t the only reason for the excitement.

A red-carpet movie premiere and after-party to benefit the Canadian non-profit Baycrest Foundation at Hotel X Toronto on Friday night added a glittering new dimension to the traditional race weekend. Hosted by FEL in partnership with Racing to End Alzheimer’s, the evening featured the Canadian premiere of “The Divide,” a powerful new drama about a rancher struggling with the effects of Alzheimer’s disease.

Actor/director Perry King, along with members of his cast and crew, Legistics CEO (and Racing to End Alzheimer’s founder) Phil Frengs and former NHL player Mike Zigomanis were all on hand to answer questions and mingle with friends, supporters, sponsors and donors committed to funding the care and finding the cure for Alzheimer’s. Truly a night to remember.

Founder Phil Frengs and FEL president Chris Bye celebrate a successful fundraiser for Baycrest Foundation.
