GMC Corvetteset CorvetteFest June 11, 2016 Lake Orion, MI

Recommended Posts

I belong to a Corvette club here in the Detroit, MI area with the membership being comprised of about 80 different families, not just individuals. The club has existed for 40 years, and offers a variety of different social activities for the members throughout the year. We are a NON-PROFIT club, so everything we do which raises money, gets donated to the Leader Dogs for the Blind, another GREAT organization based here in our area.


We have annually put on a car show for the past 12 years, at Olde World Canterbury Village, in Lake Orion, MI which is a pretty unique and special venue to display show cars, as you will see in the photos which follow.


Rather than just post photos of the cars on display, this is an attempt to allow you to actually feel that you were in attendance during the event, using a wide variety of photos, all with descriptions below them.

OK, the main attraction at our show is the Silent Auction tent, where there is every time imaginable for sale. Each and every item is donated, and all of the monies raised through this Silent Auction is donated directly to the Leader Dogs for the Blind.

A huge THANK YOU to all of the sponsors and donors for their contributions, as we raised a little more than $5000.00 from these Silent Auction Items on sale at this show!


Now, what were people to do during the show hours, it should be more than just walking around and talking to one another.


We provided a live band again this year, Rock Fest, and they play for 3 hours during the day of the show.




Now, for those of you who may have heard the song "Dancing in the Streets" originally done my Motown Recording Artist, Martha & The Vandellas, and re-recorded by more contemporary artists including Mick Jagger, here is Ms. Martha Reeves in attendance as a spectator, and she interacted with the people in attendance at this event.




Next is a Future Leader Dog, many don't realize that the costs associated with raising and training this pup is approximately $38,000.00 and that once they are ready to assist the individual who needs the service of this dog, the Leader Dogs for the Blind provide them to those individuals at NO cost at all.




Finally, some of the vehicles that attended and participated in the "judged" section of our show were selected as nominees for the 2016 Motor City Corvette Concours show, to be held later in the fall here in Michigan. This concours show consists of 30 of the finest Corvettes selected from a larger number of nominees from various other shows. Nominees typically are not only from vehicles in the Detroit area, but also from bordering states, and Canada.


These are the Corvettes which were selected from our club's show.

Thank you for taking the time to read and view this thread.


THANK YOU for all of the donors and sponsors whose generosity made this event successful again this year, and for providing our club another opportunity to support a very worthwhile cause, Leader Dogs for the Blind.
