Dimmitt Automotive Group was proud to be a part of the annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, a charitable event featuring vintage and exotic vehicles.
Listed by The New York Times as one of the nation’s top concours d’elegance, Florida’s own Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance is an event that has to be experienced to be believed.
One of the key fundraising opportunities is the yearly silent auction, a family-friendly event (there are even lots set aside just for children to bid) that has something for everyone, from historic pieces of automobile history to fine jewelry and original art.
Beginning in 1996, the annual event has raised over $3.45 million for the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance Foundation, a charity which has donated funds to Community Hospice & Palliative Care, Spina Bifida of Jacksonville, the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society, Shop with Cops, and other charitable organizations across North Florida.
More than 300 volunteers make up the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance Foundation, all of them dedicated to serving the community. Each year, they set a goal to raise at least $100,000 for Community Hospice. And each year, they work hard to put together one of the finest exotic car shows in the nation in order to raise those funds.
Community Hospice & Palliative Care has been helping people live better lives Since 1979. They believe in providing each patient and their family care to alleviate pain and suffering, whether physical, emotional or spiritual.
We’d like to thank the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance Foundation for creating such an exemplary event that does such a great job of giving back to the community. We’d also like to thank spectators and exhibitors for coming out and making the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance such a success.
We can’t wait for next year!
