Additionally, there are various corporate awards, vehicle class awards, and special awards such as the People’s Choice award. The proceeds of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance have helped support Community Hospice of Northeast Florida with total contributions of over $1.5 million through 2008. The event’s goal is to raise at least $100,000 for Community Hospice each year.
