Red Fundraiser to Usher in 2020

Support a Cause and Tour the Exclusive American Muscle Car Museum


Don your favorite red cocktail attire and kick off 2020 at the Bleeding Disorders Foundation of Florida (BDFF) Red Party, January 18, hosted by the American Muscle Car Museum in Melbourne. The inaugural event will support Florida’s bleeding disorders community. Sponsorships are available.


Besides the collection of more than 250 cars on display in a 123,000 square-foot facility, the museum is distinct because it is not open to the public. Viewing can only be accessed at events like the BDFF Red Party or scheduled private tours.


Tickets for the fundraiser are $100, which includes a reception with light hors d’oeuvres, drinks, a live auction and access to the museum.  A limited number of VIP tour tickets are also available for $200.  The tour is led by museum owner Mark Pieloch.


Chris Carson, whose one-year-old son was diagnosed with Hemophilia six months ago, is friends with Mark and helped coordinate the event.


“Mark is so gracious to open the museum for the bleeding disorders community so we can raise some money and build awareness for Hemophilia,” says Chris.


Fran Haynes, BDFF executive director, says 89% of the money raised from the BDFF Red Party will support programs for Florida’s bleeding disorders community such as the BDFF medically supervised Camp Spirit, family support weekends, health educational programs and financial emergency assistance. BDFF has been serving the bleeding disorders community since 1996 by supporting healthier and more independent lives.  


“Members of the Brevard County bleeding disorders community spearheaded this event to raise funds and build awareness on the east coast of Florida,” says Fran. “We hope everyone will wear red to show their support.”
