Filipina-American Mazda Road to Indy driver Michele Bumgarner will be the featured guest at a Grand Prix Kick-Off Party at OKRA Charity Saloon. The party, co-hosted by Filipino Young Professionals of Houston, will rally support for Asia Society Texas Center, one of the nonprofit finalists competing to win 100 percent of OKRA's proceeds during the month of June.
Food and drinks will be available for purchase. For each drink or food item purchased, guests receive one vote they may cast during their visit for one of the four competing nonprofit organizations selected by OKRA's members. During the June 25 kick-off party, Bumgarner will be available for autographs and photo opportunities with fans as she revs up for the Shell and Pennzoil Grand Prix of Houston activities.
