Misselwood Concours d’Elegance: Information for Volunteers
What makes the Misselwood Concours d’Elegance Special?
Unlike most concours shows, the Misselwood Concours d'Elegance does not raise money to profit a car club, car organization, or individuals; however, raises money for scholarships, as proceeds of ticket sales directly benefit student scholarships at Endicott College. For this purpose, we rely 100% on the help of volunteers. You can be part of this special day by volunteering for numerous positions.
Why consider becoming a volunteer?
It takes the active support of many people to pull of a large scale event, and without volunteers, there simply would be no Concours show. Being part of a true volunteering family is not only fun and exciting, but you also get to witness history up close as unique and rare cars / motorcycles belonging to individuals, museums and private collections drive by. We are seeking motivated people to help us turn this event into a success. Each volunteer will receive a special made t-shirt to wear during the event, which they can keep as a souvenir.
What are some volunteer opportunities?
We offer a wide range of volunteer positions. Some positions require standing up for longer periods of time; others are a mix; however all are fun and exciting! Examples of volunteer duties include: Assisting with welcome and greeting, car registrations, ticket sales, food and beverage, grilling etc.
What are the times I need to be there?
We ask you to set aside at least 2 hours of your time to dedicate to helping out, although we prefer volunteers to be present throughout the entire show. While some positions require a start at 8am, others start later, all depending on which tasks need to be performed. We will always try to set volunteers up in teams, so that everyone can take breaks to admire the cars up close.
How do I apply?
You can help us out by simply emailing email@example.com. Please make sure to write "I want to volunteer" in the subject of your email. Closer to date of the event, we will plan a volunteer meeting, as well as email a volunteer booklet with additional information to you.
A Concours d'Elegance (from French meaning a competition of elegance) dates back to 17th Century French aristocracy, who paraded horse-drawn carriages in the parks of Paris during summer weekends and holidays. Over time, carriages became horseless and the gatherings became a competition among automobile owners to be judged on the appearance of their automobiles.
Organized on the last weekend of July, be part of our Misselwood Concours d’Elegance, an event of style, elegance and excellence featuring some of the best cars and motorcycles around.
