An Evening At The Boar’s Head

The Virginia Festival of the Wheel and Umanski Automotive will be hosting an Evening at the Boar's Head to benefit the UVA Cancer Center. Participants, Sponsors and Guests are invited to the Boar's Head Resort Ballroom Saturday evening, September 5, 2020 from 6 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.

Join us for cocktails and dinner featuring the finest in Virginia style barbecue and brisket that you’ll find anywhere. It’s a casual event that will feature a presentation by our special Guest for the Festival of the Wheel, Peter Brock, famed for his design and construction of the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe which finished fourth in its class but had been a contender for the overall win at Le Mans in 1965. Peter has had an amazing career in motorsports including developing the Nissan racing program after Ford bowed out of racing in the late 60’s after their epic duel with Ferrari featured in the movie Ford v. Ferrari. Peter will provide us a first hand account of his experience working with the legendary Carroll Shelby during that extraordinary time.

A representative from the UVA Cancer Center will tell us about the terrific work being performed at one of the leading Cancer Centers in the Country that we are blessed to have here in Charlottesville. We’ll conclude the evening with a live auction of some fabulous items with all proceeds going to support the UVA Cancer Center.
