For 13 years, the Bash has been one of our
best fundraising events, as well as a lot of fun!
This year's installment certainly maintained that tradition.
The all new 2014 Corvette C7 was on display,
both coupe and convertible styles.
As always, the Museum allowed us to do a
50/50 raffle to benefit the American Cancer Society,
with the winning ticket drawn at the closing banquet. With Shari O'Brien and
Peggy & Wade Mertz
helping sell tickets, sales resulted in a pot of $2100, 50% to the winner and
50% to ACS. The ticket was
drawn, the # read out. No immediate response. I called it out again, then there
was some activity in the back of the room, and I saw a friend's familiar face
making her way to the front. I thought Harriette Majoros
was going to have a heart attack, huffing and puffing as she stared at that
ticket. She made it OK, and tearfully said that she was giving her share back because she had lost her sister to
cancer a couple months ago.
Thanks to Harriette, the
whole pot of $2100 went to the American Cancer Society's Bowling Green office.
THANK YOU Harriette and National Corvette Museum for making this possible!
