Keels & Wheels Concours d'Elegance as a Title Sponsor

Seabrook, Texas - The 23rd Annual Keels & Wheels Concours d'Elegance, benefiting The Boys & Girls Harbor, is proud to announce the return of Bay Area Regional Medical Center as a Title Sponsor for the event that will held May 5-6, 2018.

"We are honored to have created a partnership with the Bay Area Regional Medical Center as our Official Healthcare Provider", said Bob Fuller, Keels & Wheels Concours Co-founder and Chairman. "Uniting with an organization that is committed to making a positive difference in people's lives reinforces what Keels & Wheels supports and values."

"At Bay Area Regional, we are committed to serving the people in the Houston Bay Area -- that commitment includes providing exceptional health care and being involved in the community we serve," said Stephen K. Jones, Jr., CEO of Bay Area Regional Medical Center. "Bay Area Regional has received the highest level Chest Pain Center Accreditation, a center of excellence in Bariatric Surgery and Hidden Scar Surgery, and is in pursuit of Level III Trauma Designation and Primary Stroke Center Accreditation. Community involvement is part of who we are as an organization and we take pride in being involved with organizations like Keels & Wheels."  

The City of Seabrook will also return as a Title Sponsor for the 23rd Annual Keels & Wheels Concours d'Elegance.

The annual weekend-long, nationally acclaimed classic car and vintage wooden boat show takes place each spring at the Lakewood Yacht Club in beautiful Seabrook, TX and attracts more than 15,000 attendees. The car and boat exhibitors come from every part of the United States, as do the spectators.

The features for the 23rd Annual Keels & Wheels Concours d'Elegance include the marques of Ferrari, Pierce Arrow, and Super Cars. This year, the event will also honor Classic Wood and Fiberglass Boats.

Invitations and entry forms for the 2018 Keels & Wheels event are available online and must be submitted no later than March 9, 2018. Because only 200 automobiles and 100 boats will be selected, it is important for submissions to be made as early as possible.

Keels & Wheels does not typically consider any automobiles newer than 1974 for entry in the event.
