Collector car, motorcycle and military enthusiasts: get revved up for the 7th annual Concours in the Hills on Saturday, Feb. 8 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at Fountain Park in Fountain Hills. The free, family-friendly event promises new, exciting elements this year at the high-velocity event with a low-key, beautiful outdoor backdrop that includes food and live music, all benefitting world-class care at Phoenix Children's Hospital.
Concours in the Hills creator, Peter Volny, built a thriving advertising empire around promoting the automobile industry. Migrating to Arizona, a â€œmeccaâ€ for car collectors, he turned his passion for speed and exotic cars into an anticipated event that draws car enthusiasts from across the Southwest. A childhood cancer survivor, Volny donates all proceeds from showing fees to Phoenix Children's Hospital.
To date Concours in the Hills has raised $275,300 for the Hospitalâ€™s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.
Cars, Volny says, are like pieces of art you can drive and enjoy. But The showâ€™s high voltage energy doesnâ€™t just come from cars. Military choppers and aircraft are also featured during the show.
Event admission and parking is FREE to spectators. The exhibitor entry fee is a minimum $60 donation for vehicles, $30 for motorcycles. Additional donations are encouraged.
