Longue Vue Club
Our annual automotive celebration launches our Race Week. Maggie Schmotzer and the committee are excited to return the gala to the beautiful and historic Longue Vue Club. This event has now sold out the last five years.
The evening starts at 7:00 PM with cocktails and appetizers served in the Lounge and in the lower parking lot which will be transformed into a car show. Opening remarks by WTAE’s Andrew Stockey at 8:00 in the ballroom followed by dinner and live auction The silent auction will be stocked with racing and automotive items from 7:00 – 8:00 PM. The wonderful evening draws to a close at 11:00 – so we can all get up early and go to the races at Pitt-Race in the morning!
Maggie Schmotzer and her committee once again did a tremendous job with the 2013 gala. The committee is hard at work selecting rare and unique gift packages for the live and silent auctions. If you are interested in joining the committee or contributing an auction item please email Maggie.
