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 ‘be 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 without knowing where this came from but 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 underserved girls to our Leadership-Abroad Academy each summer. In 2017 we graduated our first 4 girls from our Paris Academy. This year we will be sending 6 3rd year engineering girls to Silicon Valley to intern at an engineering company and learn fundamental leadership skills. You can find out more information about our Future Women Leaders here.

Our goal is to send 6 girls in their 3rd year engineering/automotive University programs to Germany next year!
