Eye candy: Arizona’s concours creates memories

The inaugural Arizona Concours d’Elegance was a stunning success, with 78 remarkable classic vehicles arrayed around the lawns within the famed Arizona Biltmore resort.

Some 180 cars were nominated by their owners for the event.

Some 20 committee members and numerous others helping out — all of them volunteers — put the concours together.

More than 2000 people attended.

Three “wishes” — and a good start on a fourth — will be granted by Make-A-Wish Arizona as the result of money raised at the event.

But those are just numbers. Meaningful numbers. In the case of Make-A-Wish, very meaningful numbers. But just numbers.

What everyone will remember is the beauty they experienced that day: The beauty of the setting, the beauty of the cars, the beauty of the efforts of the volunteers and all the contributors to the lives of beautiful children, and theirs to ours.
