Known as “The Car Guy’s Car Show”, the Benedict Castle Concours and Car Show is unique in bringing together all elements of the car hobby. It celebrates the breadth of the car hobby with the common theme being PASSION! We have it all—stunning Concours Winners, Rocking Hot Rods, Powerful Muscle Cars, Wild Exotics, Killer Customs, Rumbling Race Cars, Tricked Out Trucks, Blazing Motorcycles and so much more. Treasured Awards are given to the top cars in every category. With hundreds of unique vehicles on display on the beautiful Benedict Castle grounds, there’s something for everyone at our show!
The Benedict Castle is often referred to as the crown jewel of the Inland Empire. There is no other Car Show or Concours held at this kind of venue. The cars are displayed on terraced lawns surrounding the castle that are beautifully manicured to match the perfection of the cars.
Those attending are continually struck by the elegance of the cars being displayed on grass with the Castle as their backdrop. The hilltop campus features elevation changes, allowing for a variety of campus viewing points and staging the vehicles in unique positions for stunning photography and viewing.
Just like the cars, every one of us has our own story to tell. That’s why, as much as we value the cars, this is a Car Show that values people even more. Your heart and emotions will be touched by the level and diversity of the cars and the students of Teen Challenge. Both are on full display to experience and enjoy.
And speaking of those in attendance, there is no other Car Show that attracts un-paid Car Guy Personalities like the Benedict Castle Concours. Just some that attended last year’s event include Gene Winfield, Ed “Isky” Iskendarian, Linda Vaugh, Rick Dore, Sarah “Bogi” Lateiner, Ralph Holguin, and the most famous Car Guy in the world, Mike Brewer and his partner Ant Anstead from their global TV Show Wheeler Dealers. And this year, the Grand Marshal will be the legendary Corky Coker.
This is a one of a kind Concours Car Show that displays the best of the best cars from every genre of the car hobby, but there’s a higher calling. The biggest attraction for the crowds and celebrities is knowing that this incredibly fun day will pay for hundreds of lives being set free from drug and alcohol addiction over the next year.
The success of Teen Challenge comes from knowing all addictions are the result of trying to fill the void in your life that only God can fill. That’s why Teen Challenge is the oldest (since 1958), the largest (1,400 Centers world-wide) and most successful (86% cure rate) program in the world for setting people, of all ages, free from drug and alcohol addiction.
Teen Challenge is a 12-month residential program, with no cost to the individual, totally funded by donations, and the Benedict Castle Car Show serves as its largest fund raiser. Even better, without having to pay the normal cost for a venue, 90% of every dollar raised by the Benedict Castle Concours goes directly into the program of Southern California Teen Challenge… making every contributor a vital part of our success!
Teen Challenge of Southern California is a fully deductible 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, un-paralleled in its cost efficiency and its ability to change lives… well deserving of your extraordinary generosity.
