About Keels & Wheels Concours d'Elegance:
Keels & Wheels Concours d'Elegance is a weekend-long, nationally acclaimed classic car and vintage wooden boat show that takes place each spring at the Lakewood Yacht Club, at 2425 NASA Parkway, in beautiful Seabrook, Texas. Founded by Lakewood Board Members Bob Fuller and Paul Merryman in 1995, today Keels & Wheels welcomes approximately 200 cars and 100 boats, and has raised more than $1 million for local charities, while drawing thousands of participants and spectators from all over the U.S. and Europe.
Judging for the Concours event is held Saturday for both boats and automobiles. Nearly 60 car judges and 20 boats judges evaluate approximately 40 classes for cars and 20 classes for boats. The boating side of the event is sanctioned by the Antique and Classic Boat Society, an International organization established to standardize the judging procedure. The awards ceremony takes place on Saturday for the boats and Sunday for the cars, with main categories including Best of Class and Runner Up, as well as Best of Show for both cars and boats. Further awards include Corinthian Awards for noteworthy entries, Emeritus Awards for individuals who have contributed significantly to the event, and People's Choice Awards.
Proceeds from the 2013 event will again benefit the Boys and Girls Harbor, whose mission is to provide a home and safe environment for abandoned and abused children and healthy, comprehensive care for children and families in crisis.
