Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance 2011 – Another Year of Philanthropy Kinship Center volunteers sell tickets and raise funds for kids…
Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is a premiere world class automobile event held every August in Pebble Beach, California that attracts distinguished participants and guests from around the world. Since its beginnings, the Concours has contributed more than $14 million from this event to charity.
For the 12th year, Kinship Center was proud to be a selected Concours charity! Each year our Board members, employees and volunteers pull out all the stops to sell opportunity tickets and raise funds for kids. This year Kinship Center was been awarded the chance to sell tickets to win a spectacular NEW 2012 Mercedes-Benz C350 Coupe (above) valued at $44,000, donated by Mercedes-Benz USA.
Ticket holders also had the chance to win exquisite 18K gold drop earrings donated by George Walton’s Gold and Diamond Company, valued at $27,800. The wining tickets were be drawn on the show field podium by Master of Ceremonies Jay Leno on August 21, 2011.
Each year, the proceeds raised through Kinship Center’s opportunity ticket sales go directly to programs that support abused, neglected and abandoned children. These funds help Kinship Center create safe, new, permanent families and a second chance at life for these most vulnerable children.
