This fund will reward talented LGBTQ design students by helping pay for education at the College for Creative Studies or Art Center College of Design. The first scholarships will be given out to students starting in 2020. FUNDRAISER Hosted at the iconic Liberace Estate in Palm Springs: The event will feature a host of unique classic cars from the collection of Bryan Thompson. This is a 70's inspired event in line with the 1979 Datsun 200sx that will be auctioned off this evening - so come dressed in your best 70s outfit! WHY DID BRYAN LAUNCH THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM? Bryan created the scholarship for LGBTQ students who are interested in becoming car designers. He wants to target young people who aren’t getting the positive reinforcement they deserve and inspire them with the attitude of “you can do anything”. This is something Bryan has wanted to do since he first entered the car industry; against some pretty difficult odds. Bryan’s mantra: “A scholarship will change someone’s life, and I want to help make that happen. I want to inspire and mentor young people who are interested in car design… I hope the scholarship I’ve created helps inspire those kids who know they have talent get into design.
