Tickets to the ninth annual Concours event, which kicks off Friday, April 5 with a 70-mile tour of San Diego and culminates with the Sunday, April 7 auto show in Ellen Browning Scripps Park, will pay homage to the world’s finest classics cars, including Rolls Royce, Bentley, Bugatti, Cadillac and Duesenberg.

Proceeds benefit the La Jolla Historical Society and the Monarch School.

Tickets are $35 in advance or $40 at the door. This year’s event includes a raffle to win a two-year lease on a Fiat 500. Raffle tickets are $40 each and can be purchased online at
