|Concours d’ Elegance comes to Kirkland|
|Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff|
Carillon Point will host the 9th annual Kirkland Concours d' Elegance on Sunday September 11. Among car enthusiasts this family oriented event has quickly become recognized as one of the premier concours events in the country with participant vehicles selected from across the United States and Canada. All profits from this spectacular event benefit uncompensated children's care at Seattle Children's Hospital and Evergreen Hospital Medical Center, with more than one million dollars already donated to these needy recipients.
This esteemed "contest of elegance" is judged by national and international experts. One award is judged and presented by 13 junior judges, a group of 6th through 9th graders from various Lake Washington School District schools. These junior judges also gain an understanding and appreciation for automotive history, the restoration process and the mechanics of a non-profit event. Nearly 300 volunteers, most of whom return each year, make this event possible.
