Kids House of Seminole reports record-breaking charitable proceeds from duPont REGISTRY LIVE event

Kids House of Seminole reports record-breaking charitable proceeds following the duPont REGISTRY™ LIVE Aeroport Reception that opened this year’s Concours d’Elegance luxury car show in Winter Park.
Nov. 29, 2011 - PRLog -- Kids House announced its numbers for proceeds resulting from the duPont REGISTRY™ LIVE Aeroport Reception and Winter Park Concours d’Elegance weekend held November 5 - 6, 2011. The total from ticket sales, donations and event activities is projected to reach $30,000, more than double the amount raised at last year’s Concours d’Elegance event hosted in downtown Winter Park.

The duPont REGISTRY™ LIVE Aeroport Reception, the opening-night hangar party that drew 1,100 guests, included a live auction officiated by Tom duPont, founder and chairman of duPont Publishing, Inc., along with high-speed runway tours in racecars driven by professionals. These activities contributed nearly half the proceeds.

“All proceeds will benefit child victims of abuse and neglect, and specifically provide crisis intervention, advocacy services and mental health counseling for children and for non-offending caregivers,” explained Marcie Dearth, Development Director at the Kids House. “More than 2,400 children visit Kids House each year , but support from this year’s event will help to ensure kids will continue to receive the help they need and deserve at Kids House.”

“Such a successful event wouldn’t be possible without partners like the Kids House and duPont REGISTRY™,” said the show’s Executive Producer, Tim Webber.  “We are proud of what we’ve accomplished for our 10th-anniversary benefit, but more importantly, we look forward to bigger and better results for next year’s event on Friday, November 9, 2012.”

Now in its seventh year as lead sponsor for the Concours d’Elegance, duPont REGISTRY™ was proud to support the Kids House at this year’s event.  “They do a wonderful job,” said Mr. duPont.  “These kids are really struggling, and the Concours d’Elegance is a wonderful way to reach people who want to help. We love being part of this event and this cause.”
