Benefits Kids Wish Network
The guys over at Kids Wish Network are back again with a simply amazing raffle! Here’s a quick note from them…
“Kids Wish Network is a nationally recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organization (Fed id # 31-1579097) dedicated to improving the quality of life for children through several key programs.
Our fastest growing program is “Hero of the Month.” Each month, participating children’s hospitals select a child that has faced and overcome traumatic and life-changing circumstances with courage and spirit. That child then receives our “Hero of the Month” award. Kids Wish Network provides a valuable “Hero” gift package for the monthly award ceremony at each hospital. The hospital’s child-life departments universally tout the dramatic, positive and lasting effect the recipients of this award exhibit.
With the support of thousands of participants, the 2008 Corvette Dream Giveaway generated donations to fund the Hero program for an entire year. The huge demand for this program has created a long list of waiting facilities which is only limited by our ability to fund it.
Through the cooperation of many generous sponsors, the 2009 Corvette Dream Giveaway will be even more exciting than the inaugural event. None of efforts to help these deserving children would be possible without your generous support. We hope that we can count on your continued participation.”
Two amazing Corvettes here to choose from…
1967 Corvette “Stuffing a massive 427 cubic inch engine into America’s favorite sports car resulted in a predictableground-pounding, tire-shredding beast. The red “stinger” on the hood lets everyone know thata big-block lurks beneath. Estimated at 390 horsepower this car is a thrill to drive. The heart-thumping side exhaustonly adds to the experience. This roadster is finished in striking Tuxedo black with black interior and top. Factory style “bolt-on” wheels with red line tires add to the original appearance of this restored iconic muscle car. No automatic here, you’ll have to go through the gears yourself with the much more desirable four speed transmission.”
ONE OF A KIND 2009 Hero Edition ZR1
“In cooperation with Kids Wish Network, General Motors has created a stunning one-of-a-kind Corvette ZR1 entitled the “Hero Edition,” to honor the brave young heroes served by our hospital program.
This is easily the fastest production Corvette of all time and a stunning new performance benchmark for a production car. Its supercharged 638 horsepower engine helps enable a top speed in excess of 200 MPH.
The Hero Edition serial #1 of #1 is the only ZR1 produced with red accents, special graphics, and additional carbon fiber components. One-of-a-kind emblems confirm its unique place in automotive history. The Corvette engineering and production team has signed under the hood, verifying the authenticity of this special car.”
