Spring Cleaning? Consider donating some of your collectibles to The Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance Foundation
We have seen on social media that many of you, like ourselves, are using the extra time around the house to catch up on long pushed aside chores. Folks on our team have rearranged attics, cleaned up garages and given that spare room - the one we use for storage and rarely enter - a face lift. Our work has uncovered a few collectible items that although valuable, have fallen off the radar.

Our guess is that we are not alone. Have you "discovered" a treasure that you simply don't have room for anymore? How about donating that unwanted collectible to The Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization?
This anonymously-donated 1955 Studebaker Champion Regal Conestoga sold for $33,040 at the RM Sotheby's Amelia Island Auction in 2018 in support of The Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance Foundation. All proceeds were donated to Spina Bifida of Jacksonville .
Depending on the item, your gift might be sold at next year's Silent Auction or on our online store at https://store.ameliaconcours.org . Your vehicle could be featured at the 2021 RM Sotheby's Amelia Island Auction. Please know that our team will assess each item and decide on the best course of action. All proceeds will benefit The Amelia's Foundation that has has donated over $3.5 million to Community Hospice & Palliative Care , Spina Bifida of Jacksonville and other local and national charities since 1996.
John and Aimee Oates recently donated their 1984 Tiga SC84 Sports 2000 to the Foundation. In March, The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer drove the race car onto the RM Sotheby's Amelia Island 2020 auction block where it sold for $50,400 in support of The Amelia's Foundation. All proceeds were donated to Spina Bifida of Jacksonville .

About the Silent Auction:

The goal of the Concours weekend is to raise money for the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance Foundation, a 501(c)(3) corporation. The Foundation has donated more than $3.5 million since 1996 to worthy charitable organizations across North Florida and beyond. To aid in this effort, every year The Amelia hosts a Silent Auction during the event.
A collection of unique, rare and eclectic film, television, automotive and autographed sports-related items can be found in this popular area of The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. For the connoisseur, we have fine jewelry, original art and autographed limited edition prints.

From autographed memorabilia and original paintings to gift certificates from local and international destinations, there is something for everyone, including items especially for children (or the child in all of us).
