2015 GMCCorvetteset Corvette Fest - Lake Orion, MI

Recommended Posts

Wanted to post this information and photos from the Corvette club I belong too in Michigan, regarding our annual show, and the charity we support.

 

The charity is Leader Dogs for the Blind, also located here in Michigan, and a great organization which provides FREE Leader Dogs to those who are blind.

 

The costs associated with raising and training each dog is about $38,000.00 and Leader Dogs operates only on charitable contributions, no support from government or other agencies.

 

This years show raised $7054.00 through a Silent Auction alone, not counting the entry fees which also get donated, or any other fund raising activity our group puts on throughout the year to support them. We try to donate $10,000.00 to them yearly, and with the great results from our show, we should be well on the way to achieving that goal.

We are a group of Corvette owners and enthusiasts with varying interests in restoring, showing and promoting Corvettes. Our membership is both social and show oriented with activities including dinner cruises, picnics, car shows and road tours. These activities bring our members and Corvette enthusiasts together with a common interest of having fun and driving Corvettes.

The GMC Corvette Set was established in March of 1976 by a group of GM Truck and Bus employees. In August of that year they held their first annual car show with the proceeds benefiting Leader Dogs for the Blind. This annual show has been held at scenic Olde World Canterbury Village in Lake Orion, MI since 2005.

This is our largest yearly event and has become the most unique Corvette only car show in the area. The rolling and shaded grounds of Olde World Canterbury Village provide the perfect atmosphere for a day of family fun and Corvettes.

Throughout our history, the club has continued to grow and is now a self-supporting non-profit organization. We have a very active membership of all ages and interests who enjoy the Corvette lifestyle.

 

 

Now for some Corvettes, these were the cars nominated by our club to be considered for the annual Motor City Corvette Concours show to be held in the fall. Only a select group of 30, from probably a collection of 70 - 80 qualify, as other shows in Michigan, and Canada send it nominations as well.
