CDE-CANCELED

2020 Colorado Concours d’Elegance Cancelled Due to Ongoing COVID-19 Concerns 

Denver, CO. (August 17, 2020) — Knowing that entrants, judges, volunteers and guests face ongoing health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, officials of the Colorado Concours d’Elegance have decided to cancel the 2020 show, which was postponed in June.

 “We thank all of the enthusiasts who have gathered time and again to celebrate great cars, renew long-standing friendships, and give so generously to Ability Connection Colorado,” said Concours Founder & Co Chairman Tom Scott. “The purpose of this event has always been to raise necessary funds for the community’s at-risk children and families. Ultimately, the continued health and safety of everyone associated with the Concours is our number one priority, which led us to this difficult decision.  We recognize that cancelling the 2020 Event will result in a devastating loss of critically needed funds to help continue the life-changing programs and services of Ability Connection Colorado, although we are confident it is appropriate under these unique circumstances.”

Even though the event has been cancelled, the need is ongoing and becoming dire. We know that we cannot make up the loss of funds raised through public spectators, but we hope those who have planned to attend will consider making a 100% tax-deductible donation in the amount of their registration / sponsorship. Every dollar donated will go toward supporting Ability Connection Colorado’s mission to provide SAFE, critical early childhood education for children with disabilities and other life challenges, WHILE IMPLEMENTING NEW SAFETY practices and procedures as required by the State of Colorado. 

CONCOURS is a CRITICAL FUNDRAISER that brings in over $100,000 each year for ACCO’s five Creative Options for Early Childhood Education Centers. These centers RELY on the goodness of the Concours community to HELP FUND VITAL SERVICES for AT-RISK CHILDREN.
