The Fairfield County Concours d’Elegance will host the 2013 Nutmeg Tour for Autism benefiting the Autism Programs of St. Vincent’s Behavioral Health Services. The tour is September 22, 2013 and departs from St. Vincent’s Westport Campus, travels to the Alden Sherman Classic Car Show, then to Danbury Porsche for judging of the Best Porsche 911 celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 911’s, and finally to Dragone Classic Cars in Westport to regroup for a Westport Police motorcycle escort through downtown to the Veteran’s Memorial Green.
At the Green, we have our Classic Car Reception and Lawn party – a fundraiser for The Drive to Treat Autism Fund at St. Vincent’s. The reception features a Champagne toast to greet the tour cars, our signature Concours Cocktail by Tito’s Handmade Vodka and delicious hors d’ouevres catered by Bistro du Soleil. There are fun activities for the kids and a silent auction featuring a number of fantastic offerings (including a Track Day at Lime Rock Park Drivers’ Club, storage of your classic car at Ct Car Storage for a year, a mini-BMW car for your kids, and much, much more…) for your bidding.
Other awards to be presented include: Best Jaguar XK120/140/150, the Children’s Choice Award (judged by participants in the St. Vincent’s Autism Programs), and our annual Sharing the Passion Award.
The reception & lawn party is from 4 to 6 pm at the Veterans’ Memorial Green next to Westport Historical Society. Tickets for the reception or entry for the tour can be found at ttp://www.fairfieldcountyconcours.com/tour2013.html
Kids under 12 are admitted free.
Come help support the Autism Programs at St. Vincent’s and enjoy an afternoon of classic cars and refreshments. To date, our efforts have raised more than $120,000 in support of their programs.
