We are thrilled to return to South Hills Country Club for the 2015 edition of our Blacktie & Tailpipes Gala. We held the gala there in 2013 and the club pulled out all the stops for us. In typical Grand Prix style there will be drinks and hors-d’oeuvres served within the display of beautiful cars in front of the club.
Cocktails & Silent Auction: 7:00 PM
Dinner & Live Auction: 8:00 PM
Dessert and music by City Heat on the patio: 9:30 PM
This event is a black-tie dress code. For the ladies; evening gowns or cocktail dresses
The evening starts at 7:00 PM with cocktails and appetizers served in the lounge and on the patio. All the while, the manicured grounds will be transformed into a car show featuring all of the fantastic cars that our attendees bring that evening.
Opening remarks by WTAE’s Andrew Stockey at 8:00 PM 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. After dinner desserts will be served on the patio and pool plaza where you can dance to the sounds of City Heat. The wonderful evening draws to a close at 11:00 – so we can all get up early and go to the PVGP’s Historic Races at Pitt-Race in the morning!
A powerful 8 piece party band, City Heat was created by John Parker in the 90’s, the band City Heat has maintained the same personnel lineup in the Pittsburgh area for over a decade. 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.
