BMW – AN EVENING AT THE ULTIMATE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
On Friday, November 20, 2015, BMW hosted an unforgettable evening in the VIP Pavilion at Citi Field in New York, featuring US Paralympic track athletes who are members of the recently-announced BMW Performance Team. Stay-Focused alumni Chelsea McClammer, Tatyana McFadden, and Aaron Pike were there as “special guests.” As Aaron explained, “we were there to give guests a chance to see what an Olympic medal looks like up close, to share our stories, and to answer questions about our journeys and experiences as Paralympic athletes.”
The event featured dynamic driving experiences with BMW professional drivers, and a culinary demo led by celebrity Chefs Mike Isabella and George Pagonis, of the hit TV series Top Chef.
