Car Show Handed Over To Hospital
On the eve of the ninth successful multiple record-breaking show, Peter Volny, founder of
Concours in the Hills, is handing over the keys to the greatest car show on grass. Phoenix
Children’s will take the wheel along with help from volunteer leaders in its PCH50 auxiliary
group. Volny spent his career building a thriving advertising business around promoting the
automobile industry and nine years ago, fueled by his passion for speed and exotic cars, started Concours in the Hills to make a difference in the lives of children. A childhood cancer survivor himself, Volny has donated all proceeds from the event in his mission to help patients and families. He originally committed to raising $500,000 over five years to build a playroom at the hospital. “We surpassed that amount in just a few years and are now well over $1 million, so I guess $2 million is the next goal,” he says. Volny will continue to be involved with the event, an auto show that draws car enthusiasts from across North America. The show is heavily supported by most of the leading car clubs and dealers. It will be held Saturday, February 4, at Fountain Park in Fountain Hills, Ariz. The show is organized by sections for domestics, imports, race cars, limited-edition exotics, off-road, and motorcycles. A helicopter display will include military attack helicopters.
