We could use some help.

We need help! We’re not too proud to admit it.

The Keeneland Concours d’Elegance has an ambitious goal this year. We want to post Live Video on Facebook for our annual Day of Show, July 21st.

We pretty much just started our social media project, so we need some help. We need a couple of smart phone, social media savvy, guru types to come walk around for a couple hours that Saturday morning. Walk around, show off the cars, the people and the excitement of the day. We have lots of ideas, so many that we need help to get them all done.

Contact us here – or – contact us more directly by email to

You’ll be helping us …but more important our beneficiary – Children’s Hospital.
