The St. Michaels Concours d’Elegance’s executive committee recently announced the National Institute of Health’s Children’s Inn is the beneficiary of this year’s Sept. 23-25 event. The Children’s Inn’s mission is to provide a free place like home to children and young adult NIH patients from across the United States and the world while they participate in life-changing clinical research studies at the National Institutes of Health’s Clinical Center.
“We are proud to develop this partnership with an institution that tirelessly provides for many children, young adults, and their families as they seek treatment at any of the 27 Institutes that make up NIH,” says SMCDE Chairman Luke L. Phipps.
“This organization is dedicated to reducing the burden of illness on families while making childhood possible and helping advance NIH clinical research,” says Phipps. “We look forward to a long engagement with the warm staff at the Children’s Inn.”
This year’s event returns to the Talbot Country Club and is presented by Jaguar Land Rover of North America and sponsored by Bentley. The Country Club’s show field on Sunday will feature rare, pre-war European and American automobiles, as well as significantly important post-war sports and touring cars.
For the first time, special classes of Post-War American Touring and Sports Cars and previous Show winners are being presented, along with an exhibition of senior award-winning automobiles from significant Concours events throughout the country, including Pebble Beach, Amelia Island, Boca Raton, and Radnor Hunt.
