Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Kemble, ON - Jul 18, 2023 - The quintessential Canadian Concours d’Elegance is returning to Cobble Beach Golf Resort Community September 15-17, 2023, for its 9th year.
The shores of Georgian Bay and the lush fairways of Cobble Beach Golf Resort will once again be the canvas on which to present over 100 beautiful and rarely seen works of automotive art. Only the most elegant and authentic vehicles are invited to participate in the Sunday Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
Over the past eight years, Cobble Beach has raised over $864,000 for the Owen Sound Regional Hospital Foundation and the Sunnybrook Foundation. Net proceeds from the Sunday Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance will be donated to Sunnybrook for the construction of the Garry Hurvitz Brain Sciences Centre, where researchers and clinicians work towards revolutionizing treatments for dementia, stroke, mood and anxiety disorders.
“It is our great honour to have the opportunity to raise money for two amazing facilities close to our hearts.” said Rob McLeese, founder and show chair of the Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance. “We could not do this without the generous donations from our partners who provide items for our raffle and live auction, as well as the patrons attending our event. We are grateful to the community for making this event possible.”

What is a Concours d’Elegance? Derived from the French term meaning a competition of elegance, the Concours d\’Elegance has a historic story dating back to 17th Century French society. An event that began with horse-drawn carriages being paraded through the parks of Paris, France has evolved into a display of antique and classic cars for both competition and celebration. The 2023 Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance presented by Porsche will be held on the 18th fairway of Cobble Beach Golf Resort & Community overlooking the beautiful waters of Georgian Bay. Tickets are now available along with information regarding all other events at www.cobblebeachconcours.com.
