Allegheny Chapter

The Allegheny Chapter of the BMW Car Club

First Annual Summer Spectacular was a Spectacular Success!

The Allegheny Chapter First Annual Summer Spectacular was held at Vilka Bistro in Bethel Park and was presented by Bobby Rahal BMW of South Hills.  The day was sunny and warm – perfect day for a Pig Roast.

A huge thank you to Rick Speicher and Bobby Rahal BMW of South Hills for partnering with us on this event.  Joining us from Rahal was Dan (Master Mechanic) and Matthew (Resident Genius) were on hand to answer members questions and we were able to see first-hand the X2 wrap for their dealership.

For those not in the know, BMW is the 2018 PVGP Marque of the Year! The wrap contest is to celebrate and raise money for our charities of the PVGP.  The top four designs have been chosen and will be displayed at Schenley Park on July 14/15 Race Weekend. Public voting through donations.  The winner will be chosen according to the donations raised for your design and will be featured in BMWBLOG and awarded a BMW X2 for a month-long drive.

Another huge thank you goes to Ed/Tracey Shvarts (owners) and the staff at Vilka Bistro.  Their hospitality was second to none and the food….thank you John Curry (head chef)! So delicious!

We also would like to thank those who donated for door prizes:   Ever After Consignments, Vilka Bistro, Mani Nail Spa and Julia James Salon.  Also, the Dan from Back Office Plus for setting up the photo booth for us to play with!  Great fun!
