18th Annual Concours d'Elegance
May 4-5, 2013
Classic Car and Boat Show accepting sponsorships and car and boat entries
Seabrook, TX (December 20, 2012) - The 18th Annual Keels & Wheels Concours d'Elegance, benefiting The Boys & Girls Harbor is currently recruiting sponsors and exhibitors to participate in the event, which is scheduled for May 4-5, 2013.
The weekend-long, nationally acclaimed classic car and vintage wooden boat show takes place each spring at the Lakewood Yacht Club in beautiful Seabrook, TX and attracts more than 20,000 attendees. The car and boat exhibitors come from every part of the United States, as do the spectators.
Potential sponsors can choose from six different support levels ranging from $1,000 to $50,000 and include bronze, silver, gold, platinum, presenting and title sponsorships. All levels of funding will receive recognition in printed collateral, a color advertisement in the program, VIP guest passes to Saturday or Sunday Concours, complimentary guest passes to Friday Evening Party, VIP parking pass, and the company logo will appear on the Keels & Wheels website. Further benefits are available for higher-level sponsorship packages.
Owners of classic cars and antique wooden boats are encouraged to register for the judged competition, which takes place on Saturday. The classic boating side of the event is sanctioned by the Antique and Classic Boat Society, an international organization established to standardize the judging procedure. Invitations and entry forms for the 2013 Keels & Wheels event will be available online once they have been finalized. Because only 200 automobiles and 100 boats will be selected, it is important for submissions to be made as early as possible. Potential exhibitors are asked to submit one photo of the car or boat, along with year, make, model, owner information and a brief history of the entry. Typically Keels & Wheels does not consider any automobiles newer than 1972 for entry in the event.
