There was a special appearance by the Professional Race Car Driver LYN ST. JAMES! Amongst her many career wins she is also been an important role model for women in the racing world, mentoring race car drivers like Danika Patrick – who is the only woman to qualify for Indy 500 this year! We are thrilled to have Lyn be honored at this year’s Car Show! She exemplifies why Prancing Ponies Foundation exists…Women supporting the ‘Creation of Future Women Leaders One Girl at a Time’! CAR SHOW WITH A CAUSE “Empowering Women – Inspiring Girls” 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 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 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. All proceeds are donated to the Prancing Ponies Foundation to help ‘Create Women Leaders One Girl at a Time’. We do this by sending girls to our Leadership-Academy each summer. In 2018, we graduated our second Leadership Academy on August 2, 2018. You can find out more information about our Leadership Academy here.
