United Cerebral Palsy hosted its seventh annual “Cars Under the Stars’ benefit but this year there was a twist: The cars were indoors — inside the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

Only a few museums have opened up their exhibition space to cars — Phoenix, Boston, and MOMA, but it’s perhaps fitting that the academy joined the group — The Hamilton Building, where the event was held, began life as an auto showroom:

Don Mazulo was among those who donated his car for the event:

“The Bizzarrini Spyder, it’s one of three ever made.”

Mazulo’s Spyder joined Maseratis, Jags and vintage roadsters, much to the delight of the car aficionados:

“Love the cars. It’s wonderful.”

And the women in the room found things to do too:

“You can talk to my husband, he just loves, he loves the cars, wait till the men get back. We sent them to get the drinks.”
