This year, it could be you who drives away in Jeff Gordon’s Corvette.
But you’ve got to hurry.
Only eight days remain (until July 4) for you to buy raffle tickets for Jeff’s personal Corvette, a 2017 Grand Sport Collector Edition in Watkins Glen Gray with Tension Blue interior. One of just 935 built, the 3LT Corvette stickered for $98,650.
While winning the Corvette (and money to pay the federal taxes on it) will definitely be nice for one person, it’s the many other “losers” of the raffle that actually prove to be just as big a winner.
You see, all those tickets will help in the battle against childhood cancer, including for kids with stories like Marnie.
Marnie’s first day of kindergarten is one her mother, Robbie, will never forget. But it’s for a reason we hope you’ll never have to consider.
Less than 72 hours after walking Marnie into her classroom for the first day of school, Robbie heard an emergency room doctor say: “Your daughter has a malignant tumor in her right kidney. The CT scan caught the lower part of her right lung, so we know the tumor has spread to her lung.” The news only worsened with Marnie’s second scan – the cancer had metastasized into both lungs and the large vein leading into her heart.
After two rounds of chemotherapy to try and shrink the tumor, six-year-old Marnie endured kidney surgery followed by eight days of radiation and nine more rounds of chemotherapy.
Thankfully, Marnie just celebrated seven years of being cancer free. She’s in the seventh grade and loves to sing, act, and play volleyball.
But Marnie’s fight is never far from Robbie’s mind, and it has made her a passionate advocate for childhood cancer research.
“When you hear your child has cancer, you need hope. Hope that they will survive. Hope that they will not have long-term effects. Hope that their dreams and wishes in life will come true. Research provides the hope needed to make it through the devastating words – ‘Your child has cancer.'”
You can help provide hope to families like Marnie’s by purchasing a Corvette ticket and funding childhood cancer research for less toxic, more effective treatments that lead to better outcomes for kids diagnosed with cancer.
Each year Jeff donates his personal Corvette to the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation. The Corvette program has raised nearly $6 million for pediatric cancer research and helped open the Jeff Gordon Children’s Hospital and the Butaro Cancer Center of Excellence.
Tickets are $100 each, and no more than 10,000 will be sold. For more details, visit Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation now!
