I think that all of the Corvette Clubs associated with the National Council pick charites to represent. I know that when I was in the OKC club we did events and made contributions to the Ronald McDonald House.

My parents are in a Corvette club. They do a lot of good things, and some cool road trips! Sometimes they let me hold up the rear with my Caddy!

I have a huge affliction called a good heart made of gold
I can also be murderous and I can easily end bad people

But I love to good things for deserving people.. especially retarded people, sick kids and those kids with that progeria.
They all appreciate things and don't know how to feel sorry for themselves.
God bless 'em.

I can't wait to be bringing them toys and taking them places.
That is what I'ma to replace having a wife with.. doing things like that.

Good for you...and tearing an engine down, fixing something, putting it back together, and doing a WOT and noticing a little more punch in your seat doesn't hurt for a diversion either :bouncy:

When it comes to stuff like this, I think Vette, Viper, Harley owners are the ones that stand out. Vette and Viper guys do this a lot, and when it comes to toys for tots and similar events I see way more Harley riders then anybody else.

Poor kid, could you imagine being 12 and knowing your dying. My mothers boyfriend passed away a few years ago from Pancreatic Cancer, horrible way to go:nono:

My local car club does stuff like this for the Make a Wish foundation.

They often need limos or trucks or sports cars to take a child and his family to or from an event and we can normally find a member local enough to help out.

The hard part was when a bunch of them turned up somhewere and the kid was so ill that day that he couldn't take part. He died a few days later. [:(]
The guys all turned up at his funeral and it was very hard for them.

I admire people who devote their time to helping one kid after the other by doing charity work like that. How they cope with loss after loss is something I can't understand.
It certainly puts things in perspective, what things really matter in life and what don't. Something we often forget.

Good people calm down my nerves
Some people still remember what America is all about

And that is a good thing. It is why I love Texas.
