Burning up the path blazed by Danica Patrick, Michele is a Filipina phenom who is inspiring women around the world to enter the circuit. Emmy-nominated KHOU News anchor Lily Jang is a rising star in her own right, and will be conducting a live Q&A with Michele, who will share highlights from her exhilarating career, sign autographs, and be available for photo opportunities with fans.
Guests will have the opportunity to enter a drawing to win two VIP Paddock Passes for the world renowned Houston Grand Prix, taking place October 4 – 6, 2013, at Reliant Park. Good for the entire race weekend, the VIP passes will give one lucky winner and a guest access to behind-the-scenes trackside excitement with Michele and her crew.
Chef Rishi Singh of event sponsor Boheme Cafe & Wine Bar will debut his “East Meets South” tasting series, which highlights his signature re-mix of flavors inspired by both the Eastern hemisphere and his Texas roots. The tasting menu is complimentary for guests and a cash bar will be available.
