2019 Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix
The 37th annual Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix (PVGP), presented by the Greater Pittsburgh Automobile Dealers Foundation, concluded on Race Weekend (July 20-21) at Pittsburgh’s Schenley Park. Leading up to the weekend was 10-days of events that included car shows, parades, a gala, a party in an airplane hangar, vintage races, and much more.
Several individuals supported by Merakey Allegheny Valley School attended PVGP events as charity ambassadors, participating in the Blacktie & Tailpipes Gala, Historics at Pitt-Race, Passport to Elegance Jet Center Party and Race Weekend Opening Ceremonies Parade. We are grateful to the ambassadors and many employees for representing Merakey AVS at events throughout the 2019 PVGP! Click here to see pictures from the event.
We are also extremely thankful to more than 100 family members, friends and employees who braved the heat and came out to Schenley Park to volunteer to sell PVGP merchandise on Race Weekend. Their efforts, along with those of hundreds of other volunteers, ensures that all the events run smoothly, are enjoyable, and bring great results for the PVGP and its charities. Since its start in 1983, the PVGP has raised more than $5 million for Merakey Allegheny Valley School and the Autism Society of Pittsburgh.
