The "Need for Speed" movie Mustang is just one of the exciting things that will get your heart racing at the Henry Ford Health Systems' "Get Your Heart Racing" Pit Party benefit dinner and auction.  The hero car is a one-of-a-kind Mustang that is being shipped directly from the movie studio in Los Angeles to make a grand appearance at the big party on Friday, September 13th at Eastern Market's Shed 3. The VIP Pit party also features amazing food and drinks, an auction and live music.

Proceeds from the Pit Party benefit the Edith and Benson Ford Heart & Vascular Institute at Henry Ford Hospital.

The Pit Party is followed by a day at the track on Saturday, September 14 at Ford's Dearborn Development Center and Proving Grounds.
