Three fewer entries than a year ago didn’t set back Concourse d’ Elegance 2013 one bit.

In fact, this year’s event, marked by a 23 percent increase in spectator contributions, topped the 2012 mark for proceeds by a bit, according to Chris Curtain, president of San Juan Island Sports Car Club, which, along with San Juan Island Rotary Club, sponsored the 7th annual charitable event.

With 88 entries and a larger turnout of spectators than a year ago, this year’s event surpassed the $8,500 raised a year ago (final figures were unavailable at press deadline).

Beneficiaries of the 2013 Concours d’ Elegance are Fish for Teeth and the Family Umbrella Group.
