It’s that time of year again to talk about Saint Bernard’s Classic Corvette Giveway. This is the 25th anniversary for the classic Corvette raffle and all proceeds benefit the Saint Bernard Church and School in Rockport, Indiana. While the last couple of years have featured a midyear Corvette as the grand prize, this year’s raffle is for a 1960 Horizon Blue Corvette Roadster.
The annual raffle is an important fundraiser as it provides much needed funds for the Church’s school and daycare programs in Rockport. Your raffle ticket purchase will help the kids of Saint Bernard school with funds for school operations, activities and events.
And unlike other raffles and giveaways staffed by professional fundraisers, the St. Bernard Classic Corvette Giveaway is an all volunteer effort by the local parishioners. That’s important as it means that ALL proceeds go to the Rockport school and daycare center.
This year’s classic Corvette grand prize is a 1960 Corvette convertible. The roadster is numbers matching and is powered by a dual-quad 283/270 hp V8 coupled to a 4-Speed manual transmission. The Corvette was body-off restored and features Horizon Blue exterior with a black interior. Options include the auxiliary hardtop, 3.70 posi, AM radio, off-road exhaust, courtesy light, heater, seat belts and 6.70×15″ wide white tires with hubcaps.
This giveaway Corvette was purchased from ProTeam Corvette in Napolean, OH in November, 2012 for $70,000. The previous owner owned the Corvette since 1970. Along with the Corvette comes an owners manual and sales brochure.
Tickets are available at $30 each or four (4) tickets for $100. Only 10,000 tickets are available and the raffle will also provide cash prizes of $500 and $250 for 2nd and 3rd place. The winning tickets will be drawn at the Summer Social and classic car cruise-in on Sunday, July 14th. You need not to be present to win, but you must be 18 to participate.
Due to state and federal laws, tickets can only be purchased by calling the Corvette raffle hotline at 812-362-7313 or download and mail the Saint Bernard 2012 Classic Corvette Giveaway raffle order form. Questions or comments about the raffle can be emailed to [email protected].
