STAND FOR THE TROOPS to Benefit from The Lost Corvette Giveaway
[Greenwich, CT – November 17, 2020] Greenwich-based Stand For The Troops, SFTT, will be the recipient of proceeds from The Lost Corvette Giveaway Sweepstakes which kicked off on Veterans Day 2020.
It cost $3 for a chance to win one of 26 restored classic Corvettes. The sweepstakes runs through January 10, 2022 and contributes to SFTT’S goal to establish a clinic for Veterans with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
The first 10 of 36 Corvettes were awarded on Veterans Day of this year with proceeds going to the National Guard Educational Fund.
This Barn of Corvettes was originally won in the 1989 VH1 Sweepstakes by a single individual and then sold to artist Peter Max who intended to paint them. The project never came to fruition and artist stored the vehicles in parking garages across New York City where they collected rust and dust for a quarter of a century.
The collection was recovered by the Heller and Spindler families of New York with the intention of raising money for military charities and the restoration by Dream Car Restorations was chronicled on History Channel show The Lost Corvettes.
Stand For The Troops is grateful to the heroes who have restored these Classic Corvettes so that they can restore American Combat Vets.
