Fabulous cars will be the vehicle for the public to support critical charities this summer at the 2012 Dana Point Concours d'Elegance, scheduled June 23-24, at the St. Regis Monarch Beach resort in Dana Point, Calif. A celebration of everything automotive, the Dana Point Concours will feature more than 250 collector cars and motorcycles, all competing for Best of Show. Proceeds from the Concours will benefit charities, including the Carroll Shelby Foundation, South Orange County School of the Arts, Pet Project Foundation, Petersen Automotive Museum and the Art Center College of Design.
'The Dana Point Concours d'Elegance was established in 1983 as a way to give back to the community,' explained Jeff Spellens, president of the Dana Point Concours. 'Our goal is to generate money for charities based in this area to help sustain their mission. Today, this statement still rings true as thousands flock to the golf links of the St. Regis each year to celebrate So Cal's unmatched car culture and help others in need.'
Located in Gardena, Calif., the Carroll Shelby Foundation was created by legendary racer and automotive manufacturer Carroll Shelby. The Foundation provides financial support and other assistance to children, hospitals, medical professionals, as well as others in need of assistance in addressing the challenges of life-threatening health issues. The non-profit also funds continuing education programs for those interested in the automotive industry.
