Our Cause

In 2012, the Greater Pittsburgh Automobile Dealers Foundation (GPADF) brought back the Dancing with the Cars, the charity preview of the Pittsburgh International Auto Show. Since then nearly half a million dollars has been raised and has benefited numerous charities throughout Western Pennsylvania.

Each year, the GPADF selects a “Charity of Choice” to be the primary beneficiary of the proceeds from the Dancing with the Cars Charity Preview. Our 2017 event beneficiary is the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Charities. Since 1982, the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix has been dedicated to raising funds that help provide residential care, treatment and support of individuals with autism and with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Pittsburgh region through the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and Allegheny Valley School.
