Michelin Bash 2017

National Corvette Museum


Bowling Green KY

April 26-29

Always one of my favorite events, but this year it was a bit disappointing. Even with Shari O'Brien's help we only raised $202 for the American Cancer Society's Bowling Green office. We attribute this to the fact that we could no longer sell 50/50 tickets or draw the winning ticket at the closing banquet.
