2024 Marks the 20th anniversary of the Keenland Concours d’Elegance, an event we all recognize as an amazing car show. As much as this is true, it is more important to note that this events’ sole mission is to raise funds for the UK Kentucky Children’s Hospital. BGS PCA has been along for all 20 years of the journey and we continue to be a strong supporter. As a club, we not only enjoy our cars and members we look to engage in providing a positive impact to the community we live in, and this relationship is one of the ways we accomplish this goal.
The Keeneland Concourse d’Elegance has provided for KCH in a material way, $929,850 in total giving to date. This has helped the hospital deliver against its promise to: getting kids back to being kids.
Given that this is a significant milestone year, the BGS board wanted to ensure that we maximized our opportunity to assist this vital institution. Along with our continued support of the Concours via the annual Paddock Challenge, we will be providing opportunities to contribute throughout the year and will track our progress. The accumulated donations will be presented at the 2024 Paddock Challenge. If you want to contribute directly, at anytime, you can reach out to our club treasurer, Ron Barbato and he will assist you submitting your donation..
GETTING KIDS BACK TO BEING KIDS As a club, we support multiple charities and the board is always open to consider new opportunities. Our charitable donations in the past have been directed to our primary charity, Keeneland Concours/Kentucky Children’s Hospital and an additional charity in the Fall period. The board is always open to consider new opportunities. If you have a charity you want to put forward for consideration, please contact one of our board members with your thoughts.
Our events include: Annual Membership Appreciation Social & Holiday Party, Porsche Cars and Coffee (2nd Saturday), Monthly Socials (3rd Sunday), Tech Sessions and Drives. We are always looking for new events for our members. Please do not hesitate to make suggestions or “host” an event.
