This Sunday in Scarsdale Village: The 16th Annual Concours D’Elegance

It will take place in the Scarsdale Village. Each year, over 100 different vintage or exotic cars are showcased around the village of Scarsdale. Currently, the oldest car registered is from 80 years ago, an unrestored 1938 Buick Century Model 61.

The Scarsdale Concours D’Elegance was founded upon three ideas:

A passion for great cars both new and vintage
A desire to showcase Scarsdale students as part of a constructive and giving community
The opportunity to raise significant funds for area charities.

The show has evolved greatly over the past 15 years. Evan M. Cygler and Dennis O’Leary III founded the show as high school sophomores, creating a solid foundation for a show that has become an enjoyable community event. Students are still large contributors to the success of the car show. There are currently six students on the official board, all passionate about their work as board members. “I enjoy being on the board of the car show because it brings the community together. It combines charity with our love for cars,” says Jonah Schneider, who has been a board member since his freshman year of high school.

The admission and car registration fees, combined with community sponsors, advertisements, and donations, raise the significant amount of money that is donated to various charities after the show each year. The show’s 16 board members choose multiple charities each year to which they plan to donate. The show has raised over $400,000 total for different charities across Westchester County.

With just a few days until the show, board members are finishing up their preparations for the event. Members are extremely excited for the show and anticipate a great turnout. Andy Albert, who has been a dedicated board member for five years, has enjoyed his time spent working on the show. Albert said, “It is a great way to give back to the community and enjoy a top shelf car show."
