Win a Corvette in 2018 and Raise Money for Amyloidosis
Running Now Through August, the Annual Giveaway/Fundraiser is Now Live
Tuesday, June 5, 2018
For many years at Chip Miller’s baby, Corvettes at Carlisle, a car was given away. In most cases, the car was purchased, names were drawn and a lucky guest snagged the car with the only cost associated being the admission ticket purchased to attend. While the process has changed over the years, a Corvette continues to be given away, only this time proceeds benefit Miller’s namesake foundation and raises funds and awareness for Amyloidosis.
Corvettes at Carlisle 2018 is powered by Corvette America and it’s at this event, August 23-26, where the winning name will be drawn. The contest is up and running now and hopeful winners are encouraged to purchase tickets early so as not to miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity.
1,000 tickets are available and sold on a first come, first served basis. The tickets are being sold via the Lancaster County (PA) Corvette Club and are $100 each. Tickets are numbered 000 through 999 and have a direct tie-in to the Pennsylvania Lottery’s Pick 3 game. With Pick 3 drawings taking place twice daily, anyone hoping to win will turn their attentions to Saturday evening, August 25. This is the date when the winning numbers will be pulled at random. At that point, the winner will be notified and subsequently recognized at the event.
The prize itself is indeed a Corvette. Coming direct from Kerbeck Corvette in New Jersey is a 2019 Corvette Stingray. The car retails for over $50,000 and is brand new. Each ticket sold is another $100 towards the Chip Miller Amyloidosis foundation, though the value of the car does come out of money raised. Once all the I’s are dotted and T’s crossed, the CMAF tallies about $50,000 which is earmarked for donation and research purposes. Monies also benefit Clare House, a Lancaster, Pennsylvania based organization serving homeless women and children in a caring environment. This is done through life skills training and support, leading to self-sufficiency.
“Working with the Lancaster County Corvette Club has been amazing, this group of people are awesome,” said Corvettes at Carlisle event manager Lance Miller. “Their passion to help two wonderful charitable organizations by selling tickets, promoting the raffle and being so energetic about their efforts is great to see,” continued Miller. “The CMAF can’t thank them enough for all of their efforts. Of course we’re grateful for the many supporters that purchase raffle tickets to help the CMAF too. We really enjoy being one of the lucky charities behind the effort, plus who wouldn’t want to win a BRAND NEW CORVETTE?”
