The doors from the original Doghouse suite were auctioned at the 50th Anniversary Celebration event “Bling in the Wing” held on Saturday 6th October in the Silverstone Wing. These doors were signed by all the drivers who went into the suite and they have become a “Who’s Who” of Formula 1 and other famous drivers through the years.
In this 50th Anniversary Year, the Club have raised money for four charities; Action Medical Research, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, Headway and the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.
The event held in the Silverstone Wing on Saturday 6th October was the most glamorous, glitzy occasion in the true spirit of the Doghouse Club. Many original members were there; Patty McLaren Brickett, Lady Helen Stewart, President Shirley Procter, past Chairman Annie Carrington Yates and many, many others.
The entertainment was inspirational – The Singing Waiters, a Fan Dance, Belly Dance and a Burlesque performance with dancing to the band “Phoenix” after the Auction and Prize Draw.
