Nebraska Corvette Association Makes Us Proud
Nebraska Club Makes Community Outreach a Top Priority
There’s nothing like a group of local Corvette owners coming together to put on a show for the public, especially when it’s for a great cause.
Take, for example, the Nebraska Corvette Association. Last year, they drew several thousand folks to southeast Lincoln to check out a whole lot of Corvettes. Proceeds from the event went towards feeding the hungry and helping abused and neglected children.
The gathering marked the 23rd year for the event. The NCA raised $5,000 for the Food Bank of Lincoln, and another $5,000 for the Child Advocacy Center. Funds for the event were raised by entry fees, a silent auction, a raffle drawing, and more than 50 sponsors. This year’s event included a record number of C1 model Corvettes. More than 28 of the 230 ‘Vettes at the show were built between 1953 and 1962.
CHECK OUT: What Forum Members Are Saying About the Nebraska Corvette Association
Now, the event actually took place last year in September. But here at Corvette Forum, we don’t think it’s ever too late to commend Corvette owners doing a great deed in the community. And apparently, it’s one of many community outreach efforts the Nebraska Corvette group is involved in.
According to a Lincoln Journal Star report, the 200-plus member association is also active in highway cleanups and helping to pay student fees for automotive technology courses. They also support initiatives aimed at causes that assist ambulance personnel and fire department members.
This year, the Nebraska Corvette Association will celebrate its 50th Anniversary with a big event scheduled for May 6 at Kuck’s Motor Sports Museum in Lincoln. Keep up the great work!
