Ford Motor Company and news source AutoWeek are sponsoring an advanced screening of the upcoming Disney and Pixar movie, Cars. The charity event, which will be held in Detroit, Michigan on June 4, will consist of two private viewings before the movie's public release on June 9. Tickets are $150 each with the proceeds donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Says J Mays, Ford vice president of design, "It's only fitting that Ford helps bring this movie classic home to the community that helped put the world on wheels."

Information on how to purchase the tickets can be found at the link.

      Very good. Other comapnies should come forward to do the same. I hope that Ford does it in other parts of the world, especially in India. nearly 60 million children in India are malnourished and underweight. Ford sold 24,000 vehicles in India last year (http://www.southasiabiz.com/2006/05/foreign_automakers_increasing.html)and this year in the first 3 months Ford has already sold 14,000 vehicles. So, Ford should do something similar about Indian children.

      So an upcoming movie is already a classic?
