TODAY’S READERS ARE TOMORROW’S LEADERS! The Huntington Beach Concours has not only given automotive enthusiasts of all types another opportunity to view their favorite cars and motorcycles, 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 as one of the top children’s libraries in the State of California. Proceeds from our Concours events support a constantly expanding and upgraded book, periodical, and resource collection, as well as children’s theater, study labs and specially trained staff to help children.
The HB Concours will stage a 1 day event this year on Sunday, August 11st. This year we’ll celebrate our 35th anniversary!! The weekend will feature a Concours event with a wide variety of Domestic and Imported marques for cars and motorcycles, with special salutes to Chevrolet Impalas, Studebaker Avantis, and a special class featuring Bill Mitchell designed automobiles.
