Le Concours De Livingston
Saturday, August 4, 2012 in Howell MI
In 2011, Love INC's inaugural premiere fundraising event raised over $100,000 to help the needy in Livingston county. It will continue to be the esteemed social and charitable event of the year in Southeastern Michigan for years to come.
Some of the highlights from 2011 included: a 1951 Kaiser, a 1921 Rolls Royce, a 1908 Oldsmobile, a perfectly restored 1914 Harley Davison, Model Ts and Model As. There were also 37 works of art donated by celebrated Michigan artists like Heiner Hertling, Tom Hale, Mike “Chizzy” Chisholm, Charlie Shoulders, Wan Chuan Kessler, and Clark Gordon. Among the other delights from last year’s event, an auction for a safari in Africa, a $4,950 value. It included 6 days/6 nights luxury accommodations at the famous Zulu Nyala Game Preserve. The 2012 event will offer similar adventure packages to thrill our guests.
The event will again be graciously hosted by Steve and Patty Gronow, and will include a tour of the Gronow estate in Genoa Township, as well as a visit to Steve’s maritime museum. Guests will enjoy music, food and the pristine gardens as they stroll through displays of vintage cars, boats, and motorcycles, and observe artists at work. This year’s event will also feature a silent auction, to complement the exciting live auction.
Response to the Le Concours de Livingston event has been overwhelming, with individual and corporate support pouring in. It is well on its way to becoming the “can’t miss” event in Livingston County. The reason for the enthusiasm: every now and then you spot the helping hand that you want to clasp and never quit shaking. Love INC is such an organization, and you will have an opportunity to do just that on August 4, 2012.
