This holiday season, Crane Institute of America is in the spirit of giving. We will be donating a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette to be auctioned by Mecum Auction with television coverage in Kissimmee, FL in January 2015. All proceeds will be going to five charities. This is possible with help from Roger’s Corvette Center, which has an international reputation for providing some of the finest used Corvettes, and Mecum Auctions, the world leader of collector car sales, who was kind enough to auction our Corvette without charging.
Roger’s Corvette Center has chosen The Russell Home for Atypical Children as their charity. The Russell Home is based in Orlando, Florida and for over 60 years has been helping children whose handicap prevents them from functioning independently.
Curing Kids Cancer is Mecum Auctions’ charity of choice. Curing Kids Cancer funds research to find a cure for childhood cancer; since it was founded in 2004, it has raised over $5 million.
Crane Institute chose 3 charities: Samaritan’s Purse for helping those in need in war, poverty, or disease-stricken communities around the world; Caring People Recovery Center, which helps men and women recover from drug and alcohol addictions; and Wounded Warrior Project, which aids the men and women who bravely served our country and returned injured.
The red 4-speed convertible will be auctioned this January in Kissimmee, Florida as Lot S130. Watch the broadcast live on NBCSN from January 16-25, 2015.
