Danville Concours d’Elegance 
Message from founders regarding 2020 Danville d’Elegance Events and COVID-19: 
As we all continue to receive information regarding the evolving and dynamic nature of COVID-19, the Danville d’Elegance Foundation has changed our series of fundraising events for 2020 out of respect for our amazing donors, guests, sponsors, volunteers, and the Town of Danville. 

Sadly, our Concours and Gala Dinner will be cancelled this year. This was such a difficult decision as we really enjoy bringing all of our car enthusiasts together down the streets of Danville and come together as a group to fight Parkinson’s disease. The Tour is currently scheduled to go on as planned. We will continue to monitor the situation over time; however, we are hopeful this fund-raiser will remain on the calendar. The $7,000,000 Danville d’Elegance has raised to Stop Parkinson’s in its Tracks over the past fifteen years is because of our participants and sponsors uniting and supporting our fund-raising efforts. The Danville d’Elegance team, along with our Presenting Sponsor, Cole European Jaguar Land Rover, thanks you for your continued support and hopes you and your loved ones are staying healthy and safe.
