Guests enjoyed a balmy summer evening featuring Mustang and Shelby race cars, classic cars and vintage aircraft. The highlight of the evening was a ride in a WWII era P-​51 Mustang that flew over the crowd and performed aerial acrobatics to raise funds for the PVGP charities.

The presenting sponsor for the event was UBS Walnut Wealth Management. The evening came to a thunderous close as two Ford GT40s and a Gulf Mirage revved their engines to the delight of 400 attendees.
