Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Roll Royces, Porsches, customized BMWs and so many more exotic and rare vehicles will decorate Downtown Glen Cove at the 8th annual Gold Coast Concours / Bimmerstock produced by Martino Auto Concepts/MAC Auto Couture and benefiting the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI) on Sunday, September 18, 2016.
 
Free to spectators of all ages, this event will give an up close look at more than 700 one-of-a-kind supercars, brought in by car buffs from all over Long Island and New York.
 
While the cars are the highlight of the day, the event will also feature entertainment for the whole family, and live music presented by local bands Matt Grabowski and his Band and The Lazy Dogs. Joe Manfredi from Old Westbury Web Radio will be on hand to MC the event. Plus there will be prize opportunities and plenty of delicious food options – and it’s all to support the Diabetes Research Institute’s mission to cure diabetes.  Since its inception, Gold Coast Concours/Bimmerstock has raised more than $400,000 for the research underway at the DRI.
 
“We’re looking forward to another great year and the continued support of our amazing community, which each year helps us raise awareness and money for a truly worthy cause." said Joe LaPadula of Martino Auto Concepts.  He added, "We are proud to support the Diabetes Research Institute and their work to cure this difficult disease that affects so many people.”
 
Local elected officials Glen Cove Mayor Reginald Spinello, who is serving as event honorary chairman, and Nassau County Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton, a DRI Foundation board and event committee member, will be supporting the event once again. DeRiggi-Whitton’s daughter Amanda, has had type 1 diabetes since she was 3 years old.
