A local favorite event, the greatest part of the show, in my opinion, is the exceptional support for local charities. In looking over the website for this year’s show, it took me a few minutes to locate information on donation to the foundation or a summary of the supported charities.
Please enjoy the show, take home a few memories of the island and consider the underlying accomplishment.
Now in its second decade, the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance is among the top automotive events in the world. Always held the second full weekend in March “The Amelia” draws nearly 250 rare vehicles from collections from around the world to The Golf Club of Amelia Island and The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island for a celebration of the automobile like no other. Since 1996 the show’s Foundation has donated over $2.5 million to Community Hospice & Palliative Care and other deserving charities from Florida’s First Coast.
