The Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d’Elegance brought 18,000 visitors to the Lowcountry for this year’s 15th annual event Nov. 5.
As a thank you to the community who helped get the island and the venue at the Port Royal Golf Club ready for the show, the Motoring Festival will be making a contribution to the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry’s Disaster Fund. As part of the “Lowcountry Strong” initiative around this year’s Festival, the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry had an on-site presence at the events at the Port Royal Golf Club Nov. 5-6. From their efforts on property, the Foundation was able to raise just over $7,000 for disaster relief.
The Motoring Festival will be directly contributing an additional $10,000 to the relief efforts.
In addition to the funds raised directly by the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry and the Motoring Festival’s contribution, both Auctions America and the Port Royal Golf Club/the Heritage Golf Group will be making additional contributions to the fund.
