It's all in aid of a good cause.
The prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is one of many events affected by the global pandemic. However, with this year's extravaganza being put on hold, it's not just car content that falls away, but also the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County, a charitable institution that has been supported by Pebble Beach for years. To help make sure that the initiative still gets support this year, Lexus has donated an LC 500 convertible and Pebble Beach is holding a drawing of 3,000 tickets, each of which has a chance to win the car.
Each ticket costs just $100, and with such a charitable cause to benefit and such a great car up for grabs, the drawing will undoubtedly be well supported. Unfortunately for usual attendees of the event, this year would have been something special as the Pebble Beach Concours celebrates its 70th anniversary. Nevertheless, it is admirable that the organizers and Lexus have come together to ensure that the charity still gets support. This kind of thing has happened in the past, with Volkswagen previously donating an Arteon. It's not just new cars that get donated and auctioned either, as Ford has donated some of its most special concepts in aid of charity at the event too.
The owner of the winning ticket this year is expected to receive the new convertible in December. For those interested in entering, the car can be delivered anywhere in continental USA and Alaska. While the exact color combination and spec of the donated LC 500 hasn't been disclosed, anyone who wins a car for 100 bucks is unlikely to be disappointed with the prize. Considering that the car starts at over $100,000, that's quite a bargain. Perhaps the winning entrant can spend some extra money on some TRD parts for the luxury roadster, although we doubt most Pebble Beach enthusiasts have much interest in aftermarket modifications.
