Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix sets new record for fundraising
The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix raised a record $350,000 this year, far surpassing last year's record of $250,000, race officials announced.
This year's amount raises the total donated through the event to the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and Allegheny Valley School to $3.5 million since 1983, organizers said last week.
About 250,000 people attended the event, which ran from July 12-21 in Oakland.
