We’ve helped a lot of charities raise money for various reasons but when we can help kids who find themselves sick with cancer for no fault of their own, it really strikes a chord within us. It also reminds us how great you are for stepping up and helping causes like fighting childhood cancer. This week we are putting our spotlight on PAL’s Heroes, a Tennessee-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that raises financial support for St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital.
PAL’s Heroes is raising funds for this endeavor with a sweepstakes for a 1969 Corvette in Monaco Orange. The car is slated to be given away on December 23rd and there is also a $40,000 cash option.

PALS’s Heroes was formed as a charity organization with the help of the founders and employees of the locksmith service Pop-A-Lock and Midwest Keyless who also participate in the fundraising efforts via payroll deductions. Their goal it help unlock the cure by raising funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to fight childhood cancer. Since its founding, St. Jude has helped raise the overall survival rate for childhood cancer from 20% to 80%, but there is more to be done.
This 1969 Corvette Stingray comes in its original color combination of Monaco Orange and a Saddle Interior. The Stingray has a matching numbers 427/390-hp big-block V8 coupled to a matching numbers 4-speed manual transmission, original carburetor, and distributor. It also offers power steering, power brakes, power windows, and a side exhaust. The ’69 Stingray comes documented with the original Build Sheet.
The Corvette spent the last year undergoing an extensive frame-off restoration. The L36 engine was removed and rebuilt to factory specs while the Stingray’s fiberglass body was stripped and underwent over 100 man-hours in preparing it for paint. The original color of Monaco Orange was reapplied with three coats of PPG paint and three coats of clear coat for a show-quality finish. Most of the interior is original to the car with only the seats receiving new foam and covers.
With a fresh restoration and outstanding mechanicals, this Stingray is guaranteed to turn heads no matter where you are. Help the kids of St. Jude to fight cancer and perhaps you’ll win a 1969 Corvette 427 Coupe from PAL’s Heroes.
