By

The Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance returns to The Boca Raton Luxury Resort, February 25-27, without its co-founder, Rick Case, the billionaire business owner and philanthropist who died last September at age 77.

The Concours carries on under the direction of co-founder Rita Case, this year’s 15th annual weekend of cars and stars featuring a live performance by Howie Mandel, a celebration of racing legend Jeff Gordon, and one of the world’s most prestigious displays of collector cars and cycles, hosted by Grand Marshal Wayne Carini.

All proceeds from the weekend benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County which serves more than 12,000 at-risk youth.

Founded and directed by Rick Case Automotive Group couple, the South Florida event is the world’s largest concours owned by a charity.

“To date, the event has raised more than $10 million for the charity,” said event co-founder Rita Case who will be co-chairing the 2022 event alongside Marc Cannon, Executive Vice President of AutoNation.

The Concours weekend kicks off on Friday, Feb. 25, with a Private VIP Welcome Reception at The Boca Raton. The invitation-only event is exclusively for Automotive Lifetime Achievement Award Winners, Big Wheel Members, Celebrity Guests and VIP Sponsors.

The Grand Gala Dinner and Auction on Saturday, Feb. 26, will treat all guests to an elegant cocktail reception, gourmet dinner and the chance to bid on several premier auction items including exotic vacation packages and one-of-a-kind experiences.

During the evening, Concours’ Chairs will recognize four-time NASCAR Cup Series Champion Jeff Gordon; auto dealer Lilliam and Gus Machado, founder and owner of Gus Machado Ford of Hialeah and Kendall; and auto manufacturer SeungKyu “Sean” Yoon, President & CEO, Kia Motors North America with their respective “Automotive Lifetime Achievement Awards.”

The evening concludes with an exclusive performance by comedian Howie Mandel.

Sunday, Feb. 27 marks the pinnacle of the weekend—the 15th Annual Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance. Grand Marshal Wayne Carini, host of television’s “Chasing Classic Cars,” will oversee one of the world’s most colorful automotive events, starring more than 200 meticulously restored cars and motorcycles from every period—some one of a kind.
