Come celebrate one of a kind cars to support one of a kind kids battle rare birth conditions and diseases
Over the past two years, classic car enthusiasts have traveled near and far to take in the sights of the large array of cars from collectors all over the country that the Philadelphia Concours d’Elegance has to offer. From last year’s Best in Show, 1958 Studebaker Golden Hawk to the Kid’s Choice, 1955 Messerschmitt, there’s been no shortage of historical, antique, and limited production cars to impress the crowd. Entering our third year at the Simeone Automotive Museum, the upcoming Preview Gala and Concours from June 14-15, 2019 is sure to follow suit.
Beyond just the classic cars that have gone through repetitious restorations and careful maintenance over the decades, attendees and supporters alike will be inspired by the one of a kind children with childhood disease and birth disorders and their families who have a knack for finding beauty in qualities that are often overlooked. The great attention to detail, respect for individuality and dedication to reach full potential bring these distinct groups together.
The event host, Cool Cars for Kids (CCfK), is a Philadelphia-based non-profit organization aiming to provide help and hope to children with pediatric diseases and birth defects and their families. Through the support of individuals and the classic car community, the Philadelphia Concours collectively raised over $200,000. Funds raised were and will continue to be used to support research into childhood diseases and birth defects with the goal of identifying the best possible treatments and cures through our main beneficiary, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).
We invite everyone (car enthusiast, or not) to join us for a fun-filled couple of days on June 14-15 at our premier judged concours, including a public corral, lots of food, music, and kid-friendly activities!
