Fundraiser at Hofbräuhaus – Postponed

Update 8/25/20: Current restrictions will not allow us to have more than 25 people gather at the Hofbrauhaus for our planned October event under the current restrictions. If conditions change we will try and host this fundraiser.

This fall event at the Hofbräuhaus is usually held to take a Victory Lap and recognize the contributions of our PVGP sponsors, partners and car clubs and honor our volunteers. It is also a wonderful time to meet our charity partners in person as the Ambassadors from Merakey Allegheny Valley School and the Autism Society – it’s the reason we all do this!
We originally planned to have this event on October 12 and stage a car show in the streets around the Hofbräuhaus on the South Side. Look for further details as conditions change and hopefully, we can hold this event in the near future.
The PVGP will take over the restaurant and occupy the main bier hall and terrace. This is a private event but anyone involved in the PVGP is welcome. We encourage anyone who is interested in becoming a volunteer or sponsor to attend – it is a great opportunity to learn more about the PVGP and meet the great people that make it all happen.

Checkered Flag Winners
Starting back in 2009, the PVGP began awarding checkered flags to recognize the extraordinary efforts of its volunteers and partners. The first flag was awarded posthumously to our Chief Starter Don “Downtown” Brown, one of our original volunteers and the man who waved the checkered flag at the PVGP for 26 years.  Since then we have presented the checkered flag to nearly 100 volunteers and supporters. Flags will be awarded at the Hofbräuhaus that night but you will need to be there to see who the winners are! Complete list of past winners.
