After dinner, President Derek Brown delivered a few remarks and thanked and introduced the Board Members. Grand Prix Association of Long Beach President and CEO Jim Michaelian also delivered some remarks and thanked the Committee. Then Derek and company handed out a couple of tables’ worth of raffle prizes. Larry Bustmante and his band provided the music for dancing and listening. This was a first-class event befitting our first-class dinner attire. See how much fun we had in the gallery below.
