Davie, FL (PressExposure) March 11, 2011 -- The sixth annual Boca Raton Concours d' Elegance is honoring the 50th Anniversary of the Shelby Cobra and the 24 Hours of Daytona with a tremendous commemoration on February 24 through 26, 2012 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Boca Raton, FL. The three-day series of extravagant events benefits the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County.
"The Boca Raton Concours d' Elegance is setting trends," said Jamie McDonnell, Chairman of the Boca Raton Concours d' Elegance. "As the fastest growing Concours in the country we have made strides through our five successful years of hosting the event, including featuring some of the world's most unique auction items, hosting some of the most renowned automotive icons and comedians in the industry, and raising more money than any other car event for a charity. We set the bar high and have a goal to bring even more exciting elements to the event each year - next year, the addition of the 50th Anniversary celebration of the Shelby Cobra and the 24 Hours of Daytona will help us reach that goal."
The three-day 2011 Boca Raton Concours d' Elegance, with the help of Jay Leno, made a net profit of more than $3 million after expenses for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County, and attracted more than 7,000 people from around the country. With results like these, it's obvious that each year the Boca Raton Concours d' Elegance grows, bringing together new supporters, introducing exciting new event components and showcasing even more exotic and classic automobiles and motorcycles. Next year will be no different. The Boca Raton Concours d' Elegance is honoring two extraordinary milestones in the automotive arena - the 50th Anniversary of the Shelby Cobra and the 24 Hours of Daytona - and is promising a bigger and better than ever production for all guests.
"The Shelby Cobra and the 24 Hours of Daytona are automotive icons," said Rick Case, Founder of the Boca Raton Concours d' Elegance. "They represent years of success and sterling reputations for delivering car-enthusiasts exactly what they crave - fast cars and endurance, respectively. Throughout the history of the Shelby it has evolved, maintaining the integrity of high performance that the brand is known for. Likewise, the 24 Hours of Daytona has also forged an impressive history, managing to keep its dedicated following while embracing new fans each year. All of these are traits that the Boca Raton Concurs idolizes and strives to uphold as well. And in true Concours fashion we are thrilled to honor such tremendous milestones in the car-enthusiast realm. Guests can expect to see numerous Shelby cars and 24 Hours of Daytona-inspired additions to next year's Concours, as we set out on the track to make automotive history yet again."
