I was in Lake George NY. primarily to catch the Hemmings Motor News Concours D’Elegance on Sunday 15 September but I also attended the previous day’s Cruise -In- Spectacular.
This is a regular accompanying event to the concours that allows anyone with a Classic Car or noatable vehicle but not entered for the Concours, to display and parade their cars.
Both days started with a “Silent Auction” of automotive related items and experiences donated by individuals and organisations. Here is a quotation from the 2019 Hemmings Motor News Concours d’Elegance programme talking about last year’s Silent Auction and its purpose –
” The silent auction was one of the most popular activities that took place during the 2018 Hemmings Motor News Concours d’Elegance and last year’s two day auctionresulted in St. Jude’s Research Hospital and Autism Fammilies CONNECRicut each receiving a donation of $5000. We’re hoping to raise even more money in 2019, as this year’s silent auctionwill include more than50 desirable and valuable items and experiences. Hemmings will donate the proceeds of this year’s silent auction to St. Jude’s Research Hospital and the Krantz Cottage Family Retreat Program of the Ronald mcDonald house Charities of the Capital Region. We hope you’ll open your wallets and your hearts to help us support these deserving organizations continue their good work.”
