If you’re a car enthusiast, the mere mention of luxury brands such as Rolls-Royce, Bugatti and Maserati is enough to evoke excitement. When you combine rare and unique offerings from prestigious brands with trendy fashion and lifestyle elements, live local and regional music, plus delicious food and drink spread across the rolling hills of the Four Seasons Resort & Club, you have a unique single-day festival that also raises money for a worthwhile charity: the Momentous Institute. For one day only, Park Place Dealerships will bring all of its luxury brands together in one venue for the Park Place Luxury & Supercar Showcase at the Four Seasons Resort & Club from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, September 9.
“This year marks our 30th year of business in North Texas,” said Park Place Dealerships founder and chairman Ken Schnitzer, via press release. “In 1987, I purchased a Mercedes-Benz dealership on Oak Lawn and have been fortunate to grow our brand by offering unparalleled customer service and creating a comfortable environment for clients. For the first time in our history, the Supercar Showcase brings all of our brands together in one location for a rare opportunity for guests to enjoy and support kids in the community.”
The Park Place Luxury & Supercar Showcase event will be open to the public with tickets ranging from $25 to $50 for general admission and up to $100 for VIP All Access, including the VIP Lounge with complimentary food and beverages. Click here for tickets.
“We are proud to partner with Park Place Dealerships on this truly remarkable event in September,” said Dirk Burghartz, Regional Vice President and General Manager at Four Seasons Resort & Club Dallas at Las Colinas. “Four Seasons believes in giving back to the community, and we are honored to be the host venue for such an event that continues to provide charitable dollars to the well-deserving Momentous Institute.”
In addition to the incredible lineup of rare and exotic vehicles, guests purchasing VIP All Access passes will have the opportunity to sample culinary specialties from the Four Seasons’ Law and Outlaw, Dallas Chop House Burger, Dallas Fish Market and selections from Cool River Café’s new menu featuring a collaboration of Chefs Kent Rathbun and Fernando Rodriquez, as well as other trending restaurants. VIP guests will also receive drink vouchers for celebratory sips from Absolut Elyx and Perrier Jouet along with other crafted cocktails from Pernod Ricard in the VIP Lounge. Several food trucks will also be onsite.
Within the family-friendly event will be a juried Concours Invitational Car Show featuring a diverse selection of rare supercars, luxury, sports and classic cars from private collectors. Trophies designed by Dallas sculptor Brad Oldham, best known for the Traveling Man installation in Deep Ellum, will be awarded to Best of Show, Chairman’s Choice and People’s Choice winners.
