Blacktie & Tailpipes Gala

Friday, July 14, 2023

Our Blacktie & Tailpipes Gala opens Grand Prix Race Week in formal style! 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 fundraiser for our charity partners. Our 2022 Gala was fabulous! It was held at the Grand Concourse Restaurant at Station Square. Bobby Rahal Auto Group was the title sponsor and they auctioned a special Indy 500 trip for our charities.

PVGP Returning to Fox Chapel Golf Club

We are excited to take the Blacktie & Tailpipes Gala back to Fox Chapel Golf Club! We last hosted it there in 2018. It is one of our favorite locations and provides an beautiful backdrop for our car show.
