FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Only 1,000 Tickets Available with Proceeds Benefiting Charity
CARLISLE, PA – Corvettes at Carlisle is THE premier all-Corvette themed weekend in the world and judging by the license plates on the cars and accents of customers, the world most certainly does come to Carlisle each August. For 2016, the show’s popularity is such that it was actually expanded for the first-time ever by adding a fourth day. This August, America’s Sports Car is showcased in America’s Automotive Hometown August 25-28 and will once again highlight all things Corvette.
Not only is there an extra day, but another new feature is coming to Carlisle; the ability to WIN a 2016 Stingray Coupe. Yes, Corvettes at Carlisle has offered a Corvette as a giveaway prize, but never before like this. This Corvette WILL be given away to someone at the show and the chances to win are just one in one thousand. Not only are chances to win limited, but a ticket for entry into the raffle is affordably priced at just $100. Best of all, proceeds benefit the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation and Clare House.
The giveaway itself is backed by the Lancaster County Corvette Club and the CMAF and contesting actually starts at Spring Carlisle with ticket sales during the four-day event (April 20-24). After that, the next chance to purchase tickets will be during the Carlisle GM Nationals (June 17-19). GM weekend is another great outlet to showcase a Corvette and anyone who registers a Corvette for Corvettes at Carlisle is automatically eligible for a registration discount at the Carlisle GM Nationals. Finally, the remainder of the 1,000 tickets will be sold at Corvettes at Carlisle with a 7 p.m. drawing on Saturday, August 27. The winning numbers will mirror those associated to the Pennsylvania Lottery’s Pick 3 daily drawing; assuring that the wining ticket’s number will be anywhere from 000 to 999. Once drawn, the winning name will be announced both on grounds and in downtown Carlisle as part of the Corvette Parade and Street Party.
“The Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation has been researching the concept of a Corvette raffle for a long time,” noted Lance Miller, co-owner of Carlisle Events and event manager for Corvettes at Carlisle. “When the Lancaster County Corvette Club came to us about doing a Corvette raffle we jumped at the opportunity,” continued Miller. “The LCCC has been a supporter of the CMAF since our inception and every member of their club is excited about this fun and unique opportunity being offered in 2016. The lucky winner will be riding in style when they win an amazing new C7 Corvette. Registering is simple too as each person who signs up will also help raise awareness and funds benefiting a near and dear cause. As my father would often say, LIFE IS GOOD!”
Corvettes at Carlisle also includes a special display of 1966 Corvettes, Chip’s Choice; whose theme in 2016 showcases Greenwood and Guldstrand Corvettes, the aforementioned downtown Carlisle Corvette Parade and Street Party, onsite seminars and parts installations, a massive midway, industry guests and more. A single day’s admission is $15 with a weekend pass running just $35. Also, kids 12 and under are free.
