Accelerate the Cure / Plein Air Painting Feature

Event Details

Accelerate the Cure is hosting their 3rd annual drive. A social distancing, car enthusiast journey to raise awareness for alzheimer’s and to raise money to aid the caregivers in our community that are dedicated to helping the victims of dementia and alzheimers. 
Starting Line- The Back Lawn of the Grand Traverse Pavilions - 8:00 am gates open for a 9:00 am departure.

Stop #1- Verterra Winery for mimosa’s, coffee and fun.

We will once again be in collaboration with Crooked Tree Art Center whose artists will be at both sites creating their art. All art as well as the artists will be at our final destination for purchasing. Each artist has kindly offered to donate a percentage of any sale to Accelerate The Cure. 

We look forward to seeing you on the road again!
