We Thank Our Volunteers

The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance owes much of its success to the participation of hundreds of volunteers. Their involvement not only impacts this event on all levels, it also contributes directly to the Concours charities. There are currently over 1,000 volunteers, many of whom work diligently at various locations on numerous tasks throughout the year, which intensify leading up to and during Concours week.

New Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Applications for the 2024 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance are now being accepted for consideration. Because we are fortunate to have a cadre of wonderful and seasoned volunteers who return year after year, there are usually only a few openings. So if you are interested in joining our team of dedicated volunteers, click here for the application. You are encouraged to apply early as there are usually limited openings each year.

Once your application is received, we will confirm receipt via email, and add you to our volunteer waiting list. As positions become available, we will contact potential volunteers.

Volunteer of the Year
We have been recognizing a Volunteer of the Year since 2011, and since 2014, the Volunteer of the Year Award has been presented in honor of Richard Murnighan, fondly known as Dick, who passed away that year. He first became involved with the Concours in 1974, when he was asked to recruit and head up a volunteer workforce for the Concours. Volunteers were needed to sell tickets, programs and posters, oversee the sponsor needs, and maintain financial records. To quote our Chairman Sandra Button, “Dick began as our official United Way liaison, but he pulled in other community organizations and used his huge talent for connecting people to causes. We couldn’t have grown without the efforts of our expanding volunteer corps, and it’s thanks to Dick that our charitable giving has been so impactful over the years. We put on a great show, but Dick was the one who always made sure we were doing it for a reason.”
