Regency Lexus CT200h Launch Party

Comments 98 by Rebecca Bollwitt

A while back I came to know the family behind Regency Auto through a mutual friend and since that time we’ve worked together on a few events such as the upcoming launch party for the new Lexus CT200h hybrid.

Lexus CT200h from Regency Lexus

The party will be Thursday, April 7th and everyone is invited to come down to 1778 Burrard (at 2nd in Kits) between 6:00pm and 9:00pm. There will be refreshments, giveaways, a DJ, catering by Copper Chimney, and a non-profit component supporting Charity: Water.

The CT200h is a sporty little hatchback that packs a punch even when it’s completely in ‘electric’ mode. John and I had the car for a day and liked all the tech (lots of room to plug in gadgets), the pick-up, the compact size, and of course all of the bells and whistles that you would expect from a luxury vehicle.

For a little incentive to show up at the launch event (tagged #RegencyParty on Twitter) Regency Lexus has exclusively partnered with me to give away a $1000 gift card for Holt Renfrew for a reader who can complete the following:

  • Head down to Regency Lexus on Burrard between now and April 7th then take a Foursquare photo or Twitpic with a product specialist and tag it #RegencyParty @Miss604, sharing to Twitter.
  • AND/OR… Leave a comment on this post listing one of the CT200h’s available colours (Hint: There are 7 options).
  • Once you’ve left a comment or stopped by the showroom, you must then be present at the party on April 7th in order to win.

    This is a pretty big prize so I think a comment entry or checking out the car for yourself would definitely be worthwhile. I will be giving a complete list of my comment, Foursquare, and Twitter entries to Izzam at Regency Auto so that he can do the draw on Thursday. Good luck and let me know what you think of the CT200h.

    Disclosure: No purchase necessary, open to anyone of driving age who can complete the requirements for entry. I did not receive any type of product or compensation for this campaign. You may enter the contest until 4:00pm on the day of the event, April 7th.
