CAR SHOW WITH A CAUSE
The idea for the Prancing Ponies Foundation, Rally, and Car Show stems from an experience in San Francisco where I was at a stop sign next to a bus stop watching 3 teenage girls ‘be teenage girls’ and reminiscing about my own experience as a teenager. The girls suddenly grew silent and I noticed they were looking at me. One of the girls said ‘Miss, I like your car’ and without knowing where this came from but I said ‘I expect you to get one too’. Our eyes locked and I’ll never forget her little face as she slowly nodded in agreement. I knew in that moment there was a real connection made with her and that I could use my Ferrari to inspire young girls. The Car Show provides an opportunity for young girls to be inspired to pursue careers in the automotive/motorsports industry and be empowered by seeing other women car enthusiasts like yourself.
This year we will honor the first all women low rider car club in the US “The Unique Ladies”. You can view their story HERE.
All proceeds are donated to the Prancing Ponies Foundation to help ‘Create Women Leaders One Girl at a Time’. We do this by sending high school graduating girls to our Leadership-Abroad Academy each summer. This year have sent 4 girls to Paris. You can find out more information about our Future Women Leaders HERE
Our goal is to send 10 girls to Italy next year!
This is the first time since its inception that Women will have their own car show during the #MontereyCarWeek! Thanks to the City Council of #CarmelbytheSea, we are excited to be a part of making history on August 16th but we know we would not be here if it weren’t for so many courageous women car enthusiasts that have endured before us and we want to thank you all!
