GPAD Foundation

Each year, the GPADA hosts a charity preview at The Pittsburgh International Auto Show called “Dancing with the Cars” (previously The Red CARpet Premiere) which is held the night before the auto show officially opens to the public. There is also an exclusive V.I.P. event leading up to the Premiere.

For this event, the GPADA has designated Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, and specifically Allegheny Valley School and the Autism Society of Pittsburgh as its beneficiaries. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix’s mission is to produce a world-class vintage racing event in order to raise funds to help provide residential care, treatment and support for developmentally disabled individuals in the Pittsburgh region.

In addition to Allegheny Valley School and the Autism Society of Pittsburgh, the GPAD Foundation contributes to numerous other charities throughout the year, as directed by its Board of Directors, including but not limited to …
