As this year’s calendar of events is rapidly forming, I wanted to take a moment to let you know about our annual Charity Concours on Saturday, May 7,2016. This year’s event will be held at Southpoint Porsche, a change from our usual venue of Brier Creek. This affords us a larger area for the event, and hopefully greater participation.
The beneficiary of the monies raised will be Duke Children’s Hospital via the Children’s Miracle Network. In prior years we have been able to limit expenses to $0.00 through the generosity of trophy and door prize sponsors. The intent is for this year to continue that tradition. Please watch the weekly email blast for links to the registration form and deadlines. While we gladly accept onsite registration the day of the event, I strongly urge everyone to pre-register. This allows us to determine the appropriate classes for awards as well as the number of trophies for each class, which must be determined at least a week in advance of the event.
For those who are unfamiliar with our Charity Event, please don’t let the word “Concours” discourage you from participating. The entrants are the judges (enter 1 car, get one ballot. Enter 2 cars and a family member may also vote; ie one ballot per car). This is NOT the formal Concours d’Elegance with which you may be familiar. It is rather a “shine-and-show” type event. Just clean up the car and bring it out! The cost is still $20.00 per car, so plan to show off you pride and joy and admire those of your friends. On the Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend. And if you have any last minute shopping to do, The Streets at Southpoint mall is right across the street.
