Here’s how you can rub shoulders with the seven-time Formula One world champion

It’s your chance to get up close with the man whose need for speed is legendary in Formula One circles. Michael Schumacher is coming to Abu Dhabi on 9 November, and we’ve got deets on the very special cause that he's going to be part of on our shores.

The seven-time Formula One world champion will be here for a benefit dinner hosted by Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri in Abu Dhabi during the Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The event is being held to support Special Need Centre of Abu Dhabi (a non-profit organisation that has provided education and therapeutic services for children since 1989), and to expand their campus which houses students with disabilities.

Guests would be treated to a four-course meal from the specially designed Grand Prix menus available at Pearls and Caviar, Hoi An and Shang Palace throughout Grand Prix week. Dinner will be followed by a live auction at the alfresco lounge of Pearls and Caviar - the money collected will go directly to the centre.

The auction will have Schumacher donating his autographed race suit, along with a seven-course dinner for two at Pearls and Caviar, prepared by guest Chef Jean Paul Lourdes, and there’s also a two-night stay at the Executive Suite at Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri up for grabs.

INFO: Register yourself as a volunteer at the Special Care Centre of Abu Dhabi and be part of the draw for two guest passes. Dine at Hoi An, Shang Palace, or Pearls and Caviar on 7 November to be entered into a draw for tickets or like Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/shangrilaabudhabi to win tickets.
