Corvette Club Enthusiasts Raise Funds for Oncology Kids

WINDSOR, ON.  The tradition continues when the Corvette Club of Windsor visits the Met Campus of Windsor Regional Hospital to make a donation in support of the Paediatric Oncology Unit.

Date:               Thursday, September 7, 2017
Time:              11:30 a.m.
Location:        Windsor Regional Hospital Met Campus
                        East Lawn Courtyard (corner of Lens Ave and Byng Rd)

The Corvette Club of Windsor will display vintage vehicles dating back several decades to the present.  The first Corvette care rolled off the assembly line in 1953.  The name Corvette was taken from a World War II battleship.

The Corvette Club of Windsor Annual Waterfront Corvette Show was held on June 11 this summer at Festival Plaza, attended by car buffs from as far away a Montreal and Ohio.   The Club raises funds and will present a cheque for $6366.00 as a result of the show’s attendance.

To estimate the value of a Corvette vehicle, the fist car in 1953 cost $3,500 to own and today; a Grand Sport Coupe Convertible Corvette is worth over $60,000.  Across North America, there are over 800,000 collectible Corvettes registered.

“We are pleased to again make a donation to support children who require cancer care in the Paediatric Oncology Unit at the Met Campus.” said Bryan Hansen, organizer of the annual event.  “This year, we are bringing Corvette hats for the young ones as a gift from the Windsor Corvette Club.”
