Staged Wednesday in Carmel on Dolores and Ocean Avenue, the Prancing Ponies all-woman car show featured a curated display of automobiles.
A classic Imperial Crown could be found parked next to an elaborately wrapped McLaren near a race-prepped Porsche at a show focused on empowering women to inspire the next generation of female leaders.
Award categories for the show included: Best of Show, Best in Class, Best in Presentation, and Exhibiting for Fun.
In addition to inspiring girls, the show was a fundraiser for the Prancing Ponies Foundation, founded by Chanterria McGilbra owner of a Ferrari she races named ‘Coco’, to provide girls in high school with resources and opportunities to further their leadership skills. Featuring two programs, Leadership-Abroad and Online Leadership Academy, the foundation hopes to have over 1,000 girls mentored by 2020.
Also showcased at the show were dancers from the Dance Kids of Monterey County, performing a beautiful routine on the intersection of Dolores and Ocean Avenue among the show cars.
Congressman Jimmy Panetta made an appearance and spoke regarding the importance of what the Prancing Ponies is accomplishing with its events. His words were echoed by Bettye Saxon of AT&T Communications, the show sponsor.
