The Elegance At Hershey, June 14th – June 16th

The Elegance at Hershey will bring the finest of race cars and show quality collector cars of the pre-World War II and immediate post-World War II period together for a weekend celebrating the automobile. But, this is so much more than a celebration, it is also about causes. Raising money for charity is the ultimate point of this event; JDRF, the AACA Museum, and AACA Library & Research Center will benefit.

Don’t miss the special guest speaker, Ryan Reed, NASCAR Nationwide Driver and Type 1 Diabetic at the Saturday evening Gala.
