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.
The evening starts at 7:00 PM with cocktails and appetizers served in the Lounge and patio. All the while the manicured grounds will be transformed into a car show featuring the MINI Marque of the Year and the cars that attendees bring that evening. Opening remarks by WTAE’s Andrew Stockey at 8:00 in the ballroom followed by dinner and live auction. Miss Pennsylvania 2014, Valerie Gatto will also be appearing. 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!
First created by John Parker in the 90′s, the band City Heat has maintained the same personnel lineup in the Pittsburgh area for over 10 years! City Heat’s full band configuration includes 2 male and 2 female lead vocalists, who with all that vocal range can cover a large compilation of musical styles. City Heat keeps every event fresh with enthusiasm and energy that is an integral part of every performance!
We’re gearing up for another fabulous event and a big thank you goes to our Committee. We welcome anyone who wants to join the committee – if you are interested in learning more or contributing an auction prize please email Maggie Schmotzer.
