10th Annual Phoenix Children's Concours in the Hills Raises $330,288
By Claire Natale - Wednesday Feb 28, 2024
PHOENIX – Excitement soared to new heights at Fountain Hills Park during the exhilarating Concours in the Hills, a Phoenix Children’s event. On Feb.18, car enthusiasts raced to be part of this stunning car show raising more than $326,380 through sponsorships, registration, food vendors and donated funds and services. This achievement not only demonstrates the community’s unwavering support but also underscores the profound impact of collective efforts in advancing the mission of Phoenix Children’s. This year’s Concours in the Hills was sponsored by Desert Financial Credit Union.

Some of the amazing cars on display included a 2020 McLaren Speedtail, 2018 Bugati Chiron, 1997 TVR Cerbera, 2023 Ferrari 812 Competizione and many more.

Despite being rescheduled from its initial date of Feb. 3 due to unfavorable weather conditions, Concours in the Hills delivered a successful and memorable event later in the month.

At its inception in 2014, the event featured 220 cars and attracted 3,000 spectators. This year, there were approximately 40,000 spectators, boasting more than 1,000 vehicles, five military and civilian helicopters and 83 sponsor booths and food vendors. The expansion has exceeded expectations and remains on an upward trajectory.

This year, as the vehicles made their grand debut, Founder Peter Volny alongside retired race car drivers Derek Daly, Didier Theys and Harley Cluxton presented the opening ceremony, while Darin Roberge of Motorwërks Marketing served as the emcee for the day. The official opening of the event wrapped up with a check presentation to Phoenix Children's for $314,615 With donations made throughout the day, the total was brought up to $330,228 and counting which will go directly to children in need of life-saving medical services.

There were five award categories at Concours in the Hills: Best Domestic, Best Import, Best Race Car, Best Car Club Display and Best of Show. A 1955 210 Bel Air won Best Domestic, and a 2005 Porsche Carrara GT won Best Import. An Indy Race Car won Best Race Car, Fountain Hills Auto Club won Best Car Club and a 2020 McLaren Speedtail won Best of Show.

“The outpouring of support from the community and sponsors for this event in its 10th year is truly remarkable,” said Peter Volny, Founder and Chairman Emeritus of Concours in the Hills. “As members of the automative community, we are deeply privileged to make this significant impact on the lives of young patients at Phoenix Children’s.”

In its first year since Volny handed the reigns of this stunning auto show charity event to Phoenix Children’s, Concours in the Hills has proven its significant impact with the help of its auxiliary group, PCH50. The group, also known as “The Fifty”, has a mission to harness the energy, enthusiasm and experience of 50 driven community leaders as the next generation of supporters of Phoenix Children’s.

“This year marked a significant milestone as we celebrated the tenth anniversary of Concours in the Hills,” said Dr. Kris Birkeland, Chairman of Concours in The Hills and a member of PCH50. “We are enthusiastic about the continued growth and enduring legacy that both Phoenix Children’s and the PCH50 will cultivate. This milestone not only reflects our past achievements but also ignites our excitement for the future endeavors and positive impact we aim to achieve.”
