St. Michaels Concours d’Elegance By Frank Donatoni

June 13, 2013 § Leave a comment

The Concours d’Elegance, or competition of elegance, is a network of automobile shows and competitions around the world and in the United States throughout the year. Based on French tradition and started in the United States in 1950, Concours d’Elegance clubs are today found across the nation, in which automobile enthusiasts restore classic cars from the Golden Age of motoring to mint or beyond mint condition. Region-specific Concours d’Elegance clubs are typically nonprofit organizations, the proceeds from their shows and competitions going to charitable causes. For nearly a decade, the St. Michaels Concours d’Elegance club has been active in St. Michaels, Maryland, and has been a significant contributor to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. The St. Michaels Concours d’Elegance committee and club members organize fundraising dinners, charity auctions, and their signature automobile shows and competitions, donating the proceeds to philanthropic causes.
