“Passport to Elegance” Party

Thursday, July 20, 2023

This high-flying party, presented by UBS Walnut Wealth Management Group, produced by LUXE Creative and styled by TWIN PINE, lands at Pittsburgh-Butler Regional Airport for a return engagement – our 2022 party was a great success! Guests will be part of a unique experience where every detail rivals the most exclusive of world-class charity events. LUXE Creative, known for their unique, exciting and engaging luxury events that do not disappoint will again be producers of this event.

This year’s party will be Ferrari themed as we anticipate a large contingent of Ferrari owners coming into town to celebrate the Marque of 2023. Get immersed in the evolution and examples of the rare and interesting automotive and air transportation throughout this period in a festive and lavish atmosphere featuring scrumptious passed hors devours, top notch strolling food stations and two top-shelf open bars. The evening will also include live music, silent and live auctions and other surprises you won’t want to miss.

Ticket Pricing
1-4 tickets $395 each
5-7 tickets $350 each
8 or more tickets $295 each

2022 PVGP Passport to Elegance

The party starts at 6:00 and runs until 10 PM. Ample parking is available at the Airport and it’s easy to find off of Route 8. All food and drink are included with your ticket and there will be an auction to help raise additional funds for our charities.

“I love the beauty of vintage cars, especially ones from the ’50s and ’60; and this event easily rivals the one out in California’s Monterey Bay.”
–  BOBBY RAHAL, Indianapolis 500 winning race driver and special guest at the inaugural Passport to Elegance party.


This event boasts the crème de la crème in people, cars, airplanes and experiences, no tuxedos or formal gowns needed. Determine your own interpretation of chic jet-setter party fashion for a balmy July night. We can’t wait to see your style!
