Another Corvette Caught Rallying for the Cause
When it comes to the Corvette and giving back, one thing’s for certain: the car will definitely get people to rally for a cause.
Just ask the good folks down in Plant City, Florida, who recently raised a record $162,000 in a drawing for a 2015 Stingray with the proceeds going to Unity in the Community, a non-profit and school outreach program that helps needy people in the area, as highlighted in a recent Tampa Tribune report.
Tickets for the drawing were $5 each and were sold over the 11 days of the Florida Strawberry Festival, which amounts to selling roughly 32,400 tickets. Not bad for city with a population of only 35,000 and a car priced at around $55,000.
“It’s remarkable when we pull together what we can do,” said Stingray Chevrolet dealer Steve Hurley.
I couldn’t agree with you more, Steve.
The winner of the C7 was Plant City resident Ann Trinkle (seen above) who said she was shocked to win the car. And I imagine she was even more shocked once she drove it.
