GM and Chevrolet recently auctioned off two exclusive Corvette models to raise money for charitable organizations that benefit and provide support for our veterans. The two vehicles included a Corvette Carbon 65 Edition coupe signed by President George W. Bush and a 2019 Corvette ZR1. The two Corvettes drew a combined $2.325 million in charitable donations for the Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative and Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation respectively. These organizations both provide services and support for veterans and their families. Specifically, the Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative works to help post-9/11 veterans and their families make successful transitions to civilian life, gain meaningful employment, and overcome the psychological toll of war. The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, through their Building for America’s Bravest program, provides mortgage-free smart homes designed to accommodate the needs of severely wounded veterans.
