Prime Experiences Partner and Formula 1 industry expert, Paul Jordan expressed “a strong desire to expand the reach of the Grand Prix Royale to benefit the Austin community” to do so, a portion of the proceeds from the night, including those of the auction will be donated to the RISE School.
“The Grand Prix Royale isn’t just about a big party – it’s about finding a way to help those in need by joining forces to improve education,” said Foxx. “Trust me, I will be challenging everyone in the audience to give back to the children of Austin.”
“In keeping with our tradition of giving back, I am very proud to have found a charity partner in RISE School of Austin,” said Gunville.
Partnering with The Zella Company for design, production and execution of this event will set the bar for the future Grand Prix events in Austin and around the world.
