The Return of Buxton's BIG TIME Bash

The Austin Grand Prix is proud to announce the return of Buxton's BIG TIME Bash: an evening of friends and fundraising for Meals on Wheels and More, hosted by NBC Sports' F1 Pit Lane Reporter, Will Buxton.

Last year's event at Fado Irish Pub was a wildly successful evening where F1 fans and friends came out to celebrate the return of Formula 1 to America. Guests enjoyed a lively karaoke contest hosted by Will, Pit Lane reporter for Formula 1™ in America. As the night went on, the songs and jokes continued to entertain the crowd and at the end of the brisk autumn evening, two competitors were awarded lovely watches by TW STEEL.

Both Austin Grand Prix and Buxton were beyond impressed with the generosity of guests in attendance: $2,135.25 was raised for the Austin non-profit organization, Meals on Wheels and More, right before the Thanksgiving holiday. Meals on Wheels provides a range of services to those in need, including daily nutrituous meal delivery to home-bound individuals.

This year, Buxton and AGP hope to meet last year's fundraising efforts and have a number of amazing door prizes to be given out. When guests donate $5 at the door for Meals on Wheels, they'll be eligible to win one of the many prizes throughout the evening, including team merchandise, luxury items and part of an F1 car.

The party will take place indoors at Speakeasy on Congress Avenue. Join Will, AGP and an international F1 crowd for an evening of live entertainment, unique door prizes, special guests and a few surprises.

No RSVP or tickets are required for the event: just bring a monetary donation for Meals on Wheels and be ready to kick off Year 2 of Formula 1™ racing in Austin, Texas!
