General Motors has a history of involvement with philanthropic organizations. For over 36 years, the General Motors Foundation has donated more than $350 million dollars to many communities across the country. GM has a large range of philanthropic involvement from programs to help military veterans, to education, and a long association with the American Cancer Society (ACS)
This Sunday, Chevrolet will unveil the highly anticipated seventh generation of the Corvette at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, MI. To add to the excitement, Chevrolet will be donating the first press kit of the 2014 Corvette to the American Cancer Society. ACS will be auctioning it off on eBay. All proceeds will go to “Making Strides,” a partnership between Chevrolet and the ACS and the fight against breast cancer.
This press kit is not just any press kit. It is the first of only 2,014 made and will be signed by GM executives from the Corvette program. The one-of-a-kind kit will also include a commemorative plaque, a printed booklet, and jump drive with product images—a sure collector’s item for any Corvette enthusiast.
The auction will be live from 7pm Sunday, January 13th until 7pm Tuesday, January 15th.
