Petit Fans With Not-So-Petit Appetites Enjoy Dining at Flowery Branch
DETROIT - August 27 - With all the activity and excitement
surrounding the Petit Le Mans weekend (Sept 29- Oct 3) at Braselton
Georgia’s famed Road Atlanta racetrack, many savvy race fans will
find their way to one of the area’s best kept dining secrets, The
Yacht Club in Flowery Branch.
The Yacht Club is an oasis for seekers of adventurous cuisine. Call
it American cuisine, fusion, or California eclectic, the fact
remains, the food is delightful. Owner’s Jeff and Alina Hills are
committed to only the finest ingredients, properly served in an
elegant yet comfortable setting.
At this year’s Petit Le Mans, the Hills will bring a little taste of
their Flowery Branch Yacht Club to the track. Joining forces with
Chilipepper Racing, Road Atlanta, Sports Car Revolution and Autosport
Development, the Yacht Club will participate in this year’s Post
Petit Motorcycle Charity Ride benefiting The Lighthouse Retreat. The
Hills and their staff will be providing luncheon treats for the
Lighthouse families and 160 guests attending Saturday’s function
during the Petit Le Mans race.
“This is really something special,” remarked Chilipepper Racing’s
founder, Dr. Jim Osborn. “We’ve become great friends of the Hill’s
and the Yacht Club on our annual visits here each year. To have them
join us in our efforts raising money and awareness to the Lighthouse
Retreat adds to ‘the perfect ending to a perfect weekend’ theme our
partners and we have worked to create.”
“The Lighthouse Family Retreat is so important to the families they
serve,” Osborn continued. “Having the Yacht Club join in demonstrates
the continued commitment of those in the racing community to extend a
warm and caring hand to children and families in their time of need.
This event is more than handing over a check. It’s racecar drivers,
teammates, sponsors, officials… literally an entire cross section of
our community taking children by the hand, one by one and showing
them we truly care. It’s people giving their time and attention. You
simply can’t put a price on that.”
The Second Annual Post Petit Motorcycle Charity Ride will take place
Sunday following Saturday’s Petit Le Mans race. Participants will
join celebrity drivers such as this year’s cohost, Randy Pobst along
with Seth Thomas and others on a day trip through the area that
starts with a ceremonial lap of Road Atlanta. There are a limited
number of three day Petit tickets for the race and include the ride
and lunch. Any combination can be purchased through Chili Pepper
Racing. All funds raised go to the Lighthouse Family Retreat and is
tax deductible. It costs a little more… but the experience is
priceless. If you are interested in participating in this year’s ride
contact Laurel Osborn at email@example.com.
