The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Race Weekend (July 15/16) at Schenley Park has been a free event for spectators for all 35 years. It is still free, but since it is a charity event that costs hundreds of thousand os dollars to stage, the PVGP is suggesting a mere $2.00 donation per person or $5.00 per family as you walk into the park. You are encouraged to give more and if you donate $10.00 you will also receive a Race Program.
Our volunteers will be equipped with gas cans to accept your donations at entrances to the park. We have had these Donation Stations since 2005 – the difference now is that when you donate you will be given an “I GAVE” sticker to show your support for our event to fuel our charities; the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and Allegheny Valley School.
You can donate to our charities here online now – just visit our Donation Page and make a donation with your credit card. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is a 501 c3 charitable organization that has a mission is to produce a world-class vintage racing event in order to raise funds that help provide residential care, treatment and support individuals with autism and intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Pittsburgh region through the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and Allegheny Valley School. Both of these charities play a key role in our success, supplying volunteers at all of our events.
Our Donation Stations are managed by Reid Smith and sponsored by Vital Solutions
