Record-Breaking at Concours 2011 and Friday Night Fights, Round II!

Monday, October 03, 2011

morgan adams concours 2011If you joined us on August 27, you were in great company along with over 1,300 other supporters of The Morgan Adams Foundation at our annual Concours d’Elegance event! Thanks to our incredibly generous exhibitors (see the event catalog for a complete list) and our brilliant sponsors Newmont Mining, Chubb, Decon Labs, Inc. and an additional list you’ll find below, we produced one of  the largest Concours to-date and are completely astounded by your participation and generosity.  Curious how we fared? Keep reading and be amazed!

Chip Auction Results

Each year, we hold a chip auction to raise funds to purchase microchips that can help oncologists differentiate cancers down to the genetic level. These chips are helping pediatric cancer patients receive highly customized treatment protocols and improve the success of those treatments. In the long term, that means fewer kids lost to cancer and better treatments from the get-go for these amazing kids when they need them most.

You stepped to the plate in an awe-inspiring fashion this year, and to-date, donations from the chip auction funded over 1,000 chips (total accounted for raise at present is $103,500 with a cost of $1,000 per microchip). On top of it all, the bartenders for the evening donated their tips back to MAF, buying an additional TWO chips with their donations! We can’t thank you enough for the role each of you played in meeting this landmark number. It makes us smile to know that in the coming year, we can offer even more of these diagnostic microchips to kids who are fighting for their lives.
