Amelia Island is my hometown, it is where I first encountered the duPont REGISTRY at the Amelia Island Concours 25 years ago. It has been 55 years since the island took a direct hit from Hurricane Dora. Since North Florida has been spared for almost 6 decades, it is time to help those in need. Announced this morning in an email from Bill Warner, the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance Foundation will donate $50 for each $125 general admission ticket purchased.
Many First Responders from across Florida are working to clear debris and rebuild infrastructure on the Abaco Islands. If you aren’t planning on attending Amelia Island, our friends at The Collection have an Amazon Wishlist of needed items. As I write this, Tropical Depression Humberto is forming along with two other waves in the warm Atlantic. We are all blessed to share our passion for cars with others, and that means helping out when possible. Click the link below to help if you can, and we’ll see you on Amelia Island March 5-8.
