Drive for a Cure to Benefit from GROESBECK GRAND PRIX

The Groesbeck GRand Prix, a Motorsports Festival continues to safely plan its inaugural event scheduled for September 5-6, the organization’s founders have named national non-profit Drive Toward a Cure as a beneficiary for the premiere lifestyle event that will be merging vintage motorsports with the glamour of a traditional Concours d’Elegance.
 
According to Michael Satterfield, co-founder of the Groesbeck Grand Prix, the event will mark the first time an historic vehicle display will be coupled with a racing element within the Texan region, and possibly the nation. “We’ve been planning to create a unique new home for car enthusiasts to enjoy a similar thrill to the European-type events that have become iconic within motorsports and we envision the Groesbeck Grand Prix, which will be set along the historic home of Fort Parker Restoration, to set a new standard for what automotive lifestyle events should be.”
 
The organization chose to benefit the nationally renowned Drive Toward a Cure foundation which supports Parkinson’s Disease research and patient care, after learning both of the charity’s affinity within the car enthusiast community and especially due to its ties to Baylor College of Medicine’s Parkinson’s Disease Center and Movement Disorders Clinic in Houston.
 
Drive Toward a Cure Founder Deb Pollack noted that providing funds toward patient care needs for those challenged by Parkinson’s Disease is equally as essential to research needs – however the additional stress and strain from the Covid-19 virus has given patients added challenges. “Over the past year we’ve worked closely with the Parkinson’s Foundation to establish an ‘Access to Care’ program within six regional Centers of Excellence for Parkinson’s throughout the country,” said Pollack. “We’re especially pleased to note that our involvement with Groesbeck can support the Baylor Parkinson’s community.”
