Saturday, July 13, 2019, from 6:30- 11:00 pm at the Carnegie Museum
Our Blacktie & Tailpipes Gala opens Grand Prix Race Week in formal style! Please join us as we take our party, and our cars, to the Carnegie Museums of Art & Natural History in Oakland. This is the first time we have held the gala at the Carnegie Museum, just a few minutes away from our racing home in Schenley Park. This is a must for any auto enthusiast who enjoys shiny cars, fine dining and great company. In addition to being one of the city’s best summer parties it is also a significant fund raiser for our charity partners.
Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh in Oakland, is located minutes from downtown! The historic building and regal spaces including the Music Hall Foyer make it Pittsburgh’s premier party venue.
