There is no cooler car than the Chevy Corvette and that has been a fact for decades.

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.
