TODAY’S READERS ARE TOMORROW’S LEADERS! The Huntington Beach Concours has not only given automotive enthusiasts of all types another opportunity to engage in their favorite pastime, it has been a constant fund raiser for the Children’s Resource Center wing at the Huntington Beach Public Library. The Huntington Beach Concours d’ Elegance, with all non- paid volunteers has, since its founding in 1985, raised over $900,000 in support of the infrastructure of the library, which includes learning services, computers, books and other miscellaneous items in support of all children whether normal, gifted or physically challenged.
The Children’s Resource Center is ranked one of top children’s libraries in the State of California. Proceeds from the Huntington Beach Concours event support a constantly expanding and upgraded book, periodical, resource collection, children’s theater, study labs and specially trained staff to help children.
