One of the largest collections of rare automobiles and historically significant aircraft made its way to Centennial Airport on Aug. 25 for the Morgan Adams Foundation Concours d’Elegance, an annual charity auction and fundraiser for children diagnosed with cancer. More than 100 classic cars, 35 vintage aircraft and a handful of rare motorcycles served as the centerpiece for $150 per person event. The organization works with leading physicians to directly fund pediatric cancer research and therapies to improve survival rates and reduce side effects. The foundation is named for the daughter of founders Steve Adams and Joan Slaughter. The 6-year-old girl died of brain cancer in 1998. Photos by Deborah Grigsby
