New Jersey concours emphasizes charitable fundraising
The Monmouth County Concours d’Elegance — an hour’s drive south of Manhattan — makes no bones about its mission to contribute to local charities. While some concours websites require one or two mouse clicks for visitors to learn about the designated beneficiary, Monmouth County makes a grand statement on the website’s home page.
Here’s an excerpt:
“The focus of the Monmouth County Concours is twofold; to host the finest automobile exhibition on the east coast while raising funds and awareness for causes and individuals who need it most,” states Jeff Cruz, founder of the event. Since its inception in 2008, the Monmouth County Concours d’Elegance has raised in excess of $500,000 dollars to help worthy causes in Monmouth County, New Jersey. Past recipients have included Boys and Girls Clubs of Monmouth County, Horizons at RCDS, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Monmouth and Middlesex Counties, and Embrace Kids Foundation.
For 2015, Concours organizers are proud to partner with 180 Turning Lives Around, a private non-profit organization in Monmouth County. Since 1976, 180 has provided individuals and families with meaningful, immediate, long-term support, focused on putting an end to domestic and sexual violence in the community.
