A wonderful time was had by all at the 5th Annual Le Concours de Livingston, and everything worked beautifully! The cars and motorcycles were stunning, especially the 1958 Ford Skyliner Retractable Hardtop, a remarkable inspiration in its day. WCSX broadcasted live during the event, and brought The Stone Soup Car and their Rockin’ Ride. The 1967 Original Shelby Cobra, owned by Greg Ornazian, created quite a buzz with guests too. Thank you all for attending and participating.
The venue, Whispering Pines Golf Club, outdid themselves again! It always looks beautiful, and the food was amazing. It included caprese salad, carved beef tenderloin, grilled shrimp, and stone-fired pizza. We cannot thank them enough for their support of people in need in Livingston County. What angels!
The Live and Silent Auctions were a big success! The winner of the mission trip was thrilled at the chance to join DoorKeepers in building a well in Central America; donating, serving, and traveling to a beautiful country. And the baskets of goodies at the Silent Auction received lots of attention. A crowd favorite was the Italian Dinner Basket. The entertainment was awesome too! The Dance Project showed guests some amazing swing dancing while the HOTS Praise Band shared some beautiful Christian music. As always, The Music of Kristen and Andrew was a hit.
There are always some heartfelt moments at The Le Concours de Livingston. In one instance the woman who won the diamond necklace, generously donated by Cooper & Binkley Jewelers, donated it back to Love INC to be auctioned off. Also, the beautiful painting by Jan Burns was the subject of some intense bidding only to find out that both bidders wanted the painting so they could donate it to Love INC for display in the Love INC Clearinghouse.
As with any event we could not do this without all of our amazing sponsors. We are so blessed to have such amazing people and businesses in Livingston County. They always step forward to support organizations to help people in need.
Don’t miss the fun! Make sure to mark your calendars for next year’s Le Concours de Livingston, Saturday, August 6, 2016 at Whispering Pines Golf Club.
