Another year has come to an end and with the new year, we have some exciting news to announce from our friends at the Corvette Dream Giveaway.
Dr. David Park of Utah was selected as the winner of two red Corvettes – a 1967 L71 427/435 Coupe and a 2015 Lingefelter Corvette Z06 – plus he received a check for $50,000 to cover the prize taxes as well.
Dr. Park and his family were at the Dream Garage headquarters on Monday where he was presented the keys and titles to both cars.
We spoke with Dr. Park at the award celebration and he told us that he donated around $100 or so for tickets in the Dream Giveaway and he said he never thought he would win, it was just a nice way to help a charity. He said he made the donation as soon as the giveaway went live earlier in 2015 and when the phone call came a few days ago telling him he had won two Corvettes, he had already forgotten about purchasing those tickets.
All the proceeds from the “Win the Vettes” giveaway go directly to the sponsoring charity, New Beginning Children’s Home which provides long-term residential care in a family style environment for children who have been abandoned, abused or neglected. In addition to New Beginning Children’s Homes, grants were also provided to the following organizations:
- Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD)
- Disabled American Veterans (DAV)
- Detroit Rescue Mission
- Smile Network International
- National Guard Educational Foundation
- Greater St. Louis Honor Flight
We asked David which Corvette he thought he was going to drive first and he said that he hadn’t thought that far ahead yet. While he is new to the Corvette hobby, David says his father-in-law is a huge Corvette fan and will probably want to go for a drive in the NCRS Top Flight 1967 Corvette.
On hand at the awards ceremony were two Bay Area Corvette clubs that brought about 40 members to witness the event. Scott Hoke from Mecum was in the house. Scott appeared is many of the promotional aspects of the Corvette Dream Giveaway. Ken Ferguson from New Beginning Children’s Homes and Bianca Kendall who represents the West Central Florida chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving where there as well as our friend Walt Thune who previously wrote an article about the Corvette Dream Giveaway for one of the Corvette magazines entitled “Are They Real?”
Here is a brief video showing the handing over of the keys to the two Corvettes:
We hung around long after the ceremony was over and the Corvette clubs had cleared out. We watched as Dr.Park signed both titles to the Corvettes while Mrs. Park took possession of the $50,000 expense check. So yeah, giving away two Corvettes with the proceeds going to multiple charities wasn’t just a dream. For Dr. Park and his family, it really happened!
While at the ceremony, we were shown the two Corvettes that will be part of the 2016 Corvette Dream Giveaway and all I can say is wow! We’re were very excited to work with the Corvette Dream Giveaway in 2015 and it looks like 2016 giveaway will be even better.
So congrats again to Dr. Park and his family as well as all of you who donated to the charities in the Corvette Dream Giveaway.
