AmeriCares is the leading nonprofit for delivering donated medicines and medical supplies to health programs around the world.

Some of the best cars from the first 20 years are returning for a special display, “The Best of the Best.” Best in Show, People’s Choice, Chief Judge’s Award, and Chairman’s Choice winners will be lined up along the waterfront on Saturday, June 4th, and Sunday, June 5th.

Start the Concours festivities with us on Friday, June 3rd, as the vehicles from the Greenwich Concours Grand Tour parade down Greenwich Avenue at 4:00 PM.

On Saturday there will also be a special display of Ford Performance Cars - with Cobras, Mustangs and GT40s. A Saturday ticket also allows you to preview the Bonhams Auction tent with nearly 100 vehicles that will be available for auction on Sunday.

Sunday will have a special circle of historic BMWs and a circle of Homologation Specials - street legal versions of race cars that manufacturers had to produce to make the race cars eligible for competition. These are very rare vehicles.

Every ticket holder can vote for their favorite car, and the car with the most votes will win the coveted People's Choice Award. Children can participate in the youth judging. They will actually judge three cars, and they can all then present a trophy to the winning car at the award ceremony!

Come celebrate the weekend with us at the duPont REGISTRY benefit for AmeriCares on Saturday night from 7 PM until 11 PM. The setting is the waterfront l'escale restaurant at the Delamar Hotel. There will be cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, followed by a grand buffet and dessert. We will have luxury yachts at the dock where you can go aboard and relax on the water in style! AmeriCares will hold a silent auction that includes a weekend with a Tesla, a BMW i8 experience, a weekend at The Four Columns Inn in Vermont, a 2 hour cruise on a party boat, an Amelia Island Concours experience, an America's Cup yacht race and more!
