Corvette Forum to Host Final St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Fundraiser

By -

A Fifteen-year partnership with St. Jude generated more than $1 million in donations to brighten children’s lives.

St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital has done amazing things for children suffering from illnesses. And CorvetteForum‘s involvement has brought smiles and joy to hundreds of kids. Beginning 15 years ago, the goal was to create a great fundraising event to bring together Corvettes and help children in need. Over the years, some amazing memories have been created. October 9th will mark the final event.

To make this event bigger than ever, two numbers are important to beat, but one carries a bit more importance. For the first number, attendance at the show needs to exceed 72 cars to break the previous record. More importantly is the amount raised for charity. Holding the record is the 2015 fundraiser, with $149,555.00 in donations. It’s also the year that $1,000,000 in donations was finally exceeded. Total donations now sit at an incredible $1,096,203.00.

If you’re still feeling charitable and want to donate to St. Jude’s even in the absence of the car show, you can check out the link on our forum right here. Donations will be open until the day of the show on October 9th, when the check presentation concludes ceremonies.

A big thank you is owed to all of the people at CorvetteForum who helped put on the show and coordinate this over the years. Additionally, we also want to thank St. Jude’s for partnering with us, and creating a great gathering.
