   Corvette Troy hosted another successful and fun event in 2005 that generated over $20,000 to assist the Spina Bifida Association of Greater Dayton.  Corvette Troy’s benefit drawing events since 1984 have now provided over $300,000 to assist Spina Bifida families!

SPINA BIFIDA SUPPORT.  We are pleased to have helped improve the lives of many Spina Bifida children and their families over the past 20 plus years.  Spina Bifida is a life-long birth defect in which the spine has not closed completely.  One of every 1,000 newborns in the United States is afflicted; the effects vary widely per individual, and often includes paralysis and many other complications.

Funding provided to the Spina Bifida Association of Greater Dayton is used to assist over 200 individuals in purchasing needed medical equipment and to enable children to attend an all-accessible Summer camp each year.  Corvette Troy members value both our professional association and friendship with the Spina Bifida community.

HAPPY CAMPERS!

 

CORVETTE DRAWING.  Two new Corvettes are given away each year.  This is a moderately expensive but “good odds” event in that a maximum of 500 tickets are sold for $250 each.  This provides each ticket holder two chances of winning a new Corvette! 

Each ticket holder may also bring a guest to the gala Benefit Drawing event featuring a live band and complimentary hors d’oeuvres and beer, champagne and soft drinks.  The drawing begins as a “reverse order” drawing.  Ticket holders may view their ticket stubs before they are put in a barrel, and the tickets are drawn out one-by-one until the last remaining ticket wins the first car.  The 499 non-winning tickets are then put back in the barrel, and then the winner of the second car is drawn as an “instant winner”. 

The evening also features 50-50 drawings which result in several winners of $300 to $1,000 prizes.  Other complimentary prizes are presented throughout the evening.  Typically around 600 people attend the drawing party and all agree it is a fun evening which benefits a great cause!

Spina Bifida Christmas Party.  The annual Christmas party provides an opportunity to spend some time with the Spina Bifida kids and families.  We enjoy pizza together and always have a great time.  Santa visits each year and presents toys specifically chosen for each of the kids.  Entertainment such as a puppet show or magic show is enjoyed by all.
