"Looking at the devastation this catastrophe has caused to an already impoverished country, there is no doubt that we have a social responsibility to assist in any way that we can. This will not be the only funding we will provide to this country on behalf of the Chrysler Brand and Chrysler Group LLC, there is more to come," said Olivier Francois, President and Chief Executive Officer - Chrysler Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "We are pleased to join hands with Hollywood to offer this gesture as part of the relief efforts toward Haiti. And, to my colleague, Dodge Brand President and Chief Executive Officer, who is of Haitian-descent, and to all Haitian-Americans with family in Haiti, our thoughts are with you."
The Chrysler 300C that will be donated for auction is expected to raise approximately 1 million dollars.
Chrysler Joins Stars for a Cause to Auction Chrysler 300 "eco style" Edition Vehicles
The Chrysler brand, together with Dick Clark Productions, has also partnered with Stars for a Cause to donate six eco-friendly accessorized vehicles that will be auctioned off to select celebrity charities.
Nominee Meryl Streep; presenters Christina Aguilera, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Felicity Huffman; and actor Colin Firth will arrive to the Golden Globes in their select Chrysler 300 eco style limited edition vehicle, which will be donated and auctioned to the charity of their choice.
Based off of the Chrysler 300C, the most-awarded vehicle in the industry, the eco style edition vehicles are accessorized with eco-friendly materials such as cork, bamboo, recycled jute carpeting and suede seat inserts and feature refurbished wheels while providing high-end luxury and elegant design. The vehicles feature a refined interior, premium technology and offer fuel-efficient performance and excitement.
Each of the celebrities will arrive to the awards in their select vehicles:
Recycled materials are used within the interior of the vehicle. Recycled ultra-suede seat-inserts are used for the front and rear-passenger seats and are soft to the touch and durable. Hydrographics patterns are used to place organic themes on the center console and door trim of the interior compartment. Water-based paints are used on the exterior of the vehicle.
Under the hood is the 5.7-liter HEMI® engine with Multi-displacement System (MDS). MDS seamlessly alternates between smooth high-fuel-economy four-cylinder mode when less power is needed and V-8 mode when more power is needed. MDS optimizes fuel economy without sacrificing vehicle performance.
The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards
The Chrysler brand, in partnership with NBC, Dick Clark Productions and the Hollywood Foreign Press and as the exclusive automotive sponsor for the second-half of the televised broadcast, will dedicate six commercial spots celebrating the craftsmanship, artistry and vision of the nominees for "The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards" in six different film categories.
The six spots, produced in conjunction with NBC, will be vignettes that take the audience behind the creative process and offer congratulations to the nominees in each of these categories:
The vignettes for each category will air during a commercial break prior to the announcement of that category's winner.
"The Golden Globe Awards honor the vision and style of the year's best in entertainment, and the Chrysler brand embodies vision and style in the automotive industry," said Francois. "The Chrysler brand is a perfect fit to pay tribute and demonstrate a shared set of values."
