A great showing by the Cunningham group, along with increase in name recognition.

At the premium ticket – Club D’Elegance outstanding breakfast & luncheon tent venue – there were (2) Cunningham flag logos on the front wall, each flanked by a larger Pebble Beach logo.

Many people requested Cunningham directions to the website.

We were able to reunite Lynn Cunningham Maddock (Mr. “C”‘s youngest daughter) with her niece Lise Cunningham Heller. Lynn brought (2) of her grandsons – Briggs, age 7 and Ford, age 5 – to see some of their great grandfather’s (Mr. “C”) race & road cars.

The boys had their photos taken while sitting in each of the race cars. It was a wonderful opportunity to connect them with their heritage.
