Scarsdale Concours Charitable Donations in 2015

December 21, 2015

The Scarsdale Concours D'Elegance formally closed the 2015 show on December 21st by presenting donations totaling $24,000 to the three community charities: Warrior & Family Assistance Fund sponsored by the Scarsdale Police Department, Edgemont Family Counseling Service, and the Scarsdale Foundation. The check presentation was well attended by representatives from the Concours board, each of the charities, the mayor's office, and also the daughter of a WWII vet who recently received assistance from the program. During the presentation, Jill Miller expressed her gratitude to the Warrior & Family Assistance Fund for their generous contribution in assisting her father, Marvin Wunsch (Metal Smith 2nd Class) who served in the US Navy during WWII on the battleship USS Harry Lee. After unsuccessful attempts with the veteran administration, Mr. Wunsch, who is 91 years old and disabled, approached the charity requesting assistance. The Warrior & Family Assistance Fund aided Mr. Wunsch who expressed his gratitude to the program and the event that allowed the funds to be available. The Concours is a non-profit organization that celebrated its 12th year and has held to the tradition by having High School students participate in the organization of the event and to assist community based charities. The show was originally started by two Scarsdale High School Seniors, Evan Cygler and Dennis O’Leary in 2003 and continues with students, Ben Hanson, Sam Fried, Dan Patrizio, Jacob Goodman, Johan Schneider, and Sydney Lief. These students with their parents and other members work diligently at the beginning of every year to create the show that the town enjoys with classic cars, music, food, and a formal award ceremony. Since inception of the show, $300,000 has been raised for charities which could not have been achieved without the generosity of the community, our sponsors, and local businesses all that have shown great support throughout the many years.
