There is no cooler car than the Chevy Corvette and that has been a fact for decades. When you combine the coolness factor of the Corvette with Chevy’s philanthropy, you get an impressive vehicle to help those in need. On April 9, at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction, the 2023 Corvette Z06 raised 1 million dollars for the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.
“The 2022 Palm Beach Auction is a community event that we are very proud to be associated with,” said Dr. Harry L. Williams, president & CEO of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund. “Through the generous support of GM, Chevrolet and Barrett-Jackson, we raised a significant amount of funds and awareness of our TQRP initiative, which provides opportunities for students of color in the K-12 educational environment and beyond.”
In January, a first retail production of a 70th Anniversary Edition 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 garnered a hefty sales price at auction, as well. Between the two Corvette models, the total in charitable donations in 2022, is approximately $4.6 million.
