Rating: 5

Our organization hosts the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, a 10 day event each July that includes vintage racing through city streets. AVS has worked alongside us for 30 consecutive years to supply volunteers and to help stage the event. We donate the proceeds to AVS and could not be more pleased with the relationship. The professionalism of their staff is top notch and the organization is a model for its peers nationwide. We know that our donation is well appreciated and is put to good use. Many of our sponsors and volunteers have visited the AVS facilities and we have even gotten the chance to form relationships with several of their clients - it is a life changing experience!
