2009 VW Golf to be auctioned off for charity (UK)

Underneath this blue Volkswagen cover is the all-new Golf VI. The London Press Club Ball on 15th October will mark the first public appearance in the UK of the sixth generation Golf as VW’s new hatch will be the star charity auction prize at the glitzy mingling of 450 of Britain's most influential journalists and PRs. All proceeds from the auction will go to the “Journalists' Charity”, which is a UK charity organization for all journalists in need.

Ball committee chairman Philippa 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.”
