Press Release: TORONTO (July 5, 2023) – The gourmet food provider Tiffany Gate has been named title sponsor of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series street race on Friday, July 14, during the 2023 Honda Indy Toronto, set for July 14-16. The headline race of the opening day of the annual motorsports festival at Exhibition Place is now named the Tiffany Gate Grand Prix of Toronto.
Tiffany Gate, a Freshstone brand, has spent over 30 years working with food service providers to create delicious, fresh food that can fit every Canadian’s needs. Fans will have the chance to sample Tiffany Gate Fresh Gourmet premium pasta and potato sides in Thunder Alley during all three days of the Honda Indy Toronto.
“We are thrilled to be the title sponsor on opening day of this world-class motorsports festival,” said Jennifer Booth, Partnership & Media Manager at Freshstone Brands Inc. “This opportunity will allow Tiffany Gate a chance to promote our new retail brand, Tiffany Gate Fresh Gourmet, and we look forward to engaging with race fans over the weekend showcasing a few of our delicious, fresh sides.”
The Tiffany Gate Grand Prix of Toronto caps off Your Ontario Honda Dealers Present Honda Fan Friday which offers all fans complimentary general admission – including open first-come, first-served grandstand seating – with a voluntary donation to Make-A-Wish® Canada. Make-A-Wish fundraising activities have been an integral part of Toronto’s marquee racing event for more than a decade. To date, a cumulative total of $905,000 has been raised and each dollar will go toward granting wishes for children living with critical illnesses.
“We’re honoured to add Tiffany Gate to our fantastic list of Honda Indy Toronto partners as the new title sponsor of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series race. Tiffany Gate’s involvement provides further momentum to Fan Friday to increase the charitable impact that this great weekend in downtown Toronto will have again,” said Jeff Atkinson, president of Honda Indy Toronto. “Our festival goers having the opportunity to sample an assorted selection of Tiffany Gate’s classic comfort food is also a great new feature added to Thunder Alley.”
