2009 VW Golf VI to be auctioned at London Press Club Ball
The new Vw Golf VI finally made its debut! According to the manufacturer the first public appearance in the UK (while the international debut will be at the Paris Auto Show) will be at the London Press Club Ball on October 15th, when the vehicle is scheduled to be auctioned in front of Britain’s most important and influential journalists and PRs. All the earnings from the car will go to the “Journalists’ Charity”, known as one of the biggest organizations for all the journalists in need.
The committee chairman Phillippa Kennedy said: "It was a real coup to secure the next generation Volkswagen Golf as a prize. In the past we have had generous support from Audi, Peugeot and Honda providing cars as auction prizes. But this is the first time we will have unveiled a prize car before it has even been officially launched in Britain.
“The timing seemed perfect and, happily, Volkswagen agreed. So it’s a great scoop for us and of course for whoever successfully bids for it. And those at the Ball will be among the first in the UK to see it up close. It is an ambitious target and I’m delighted we have a green light. The Journalists’ Charity is a very deserving cause." In our opinion one thing should definetely be changed: the logo of the charity could be changed due to the recent unveiling of the vehicle.
