HERSHEY, PA (June 2018) – The Elegance at Hershey hosted another successful and eye-popping weekend of activities. The beautiful weather on Friday and Saturday encouraged everyone to come out for The Grand Ascent hill climb to cheer on all of the racers and to bring their own cars to show off during Cars & Coffee. The weather was a little less cooperative on Sunday though and the rain caused a few schedule changes. Several activities were moved inside The Hotel Hershey and the awards ceremony was held earlier than usual. Despite the weather hiccup, spectators were still able to spend a good bit of the day strolling in the beautiful gardens taking in 75 of the world’s finest collector cars in existence.
Over the course of 8 years, The Elegance has donated over one million dollars to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), the AACA Museum and the AACA Library & Research Center. Thanks to the success of this weekend and the generosity of the sponsors and guests, the event will once again be able to make a substantial donation to their charities.
Even though The Elegance Garden Party on Sunday started with an overcast sky, the magnificent cars still looked like works of art nestled on the beautiful grounds of the Hotel Hershey. A superb 1937 Bugatti T57S Atalante Coupe owned by Rare Wheels Collection, took the coveted Elegance at Hershey Best of Show, also known as the Governor’s Cup.
The 2019 event will be held on June 7-9. For additional information, visit TheEleganceAtHershey.com.
