Bowling Green, KY
July 19-21, 2012
Thanks to Joe & Vera Pruitt for hosting us again this year, and
supporting our doing a 50/50 raffle at the awards banquet.
As a result, Corvettes Conquer Cancer was able to send
to the American Cancer Society's office in Bowling Green!

Remembering the Aurora, CO Batman shootings...
The lot was full for the "Drive & Shine" show.
Lou and Marcia Moses joined the many who signed the underside of the hood for their donation to the American Cancer Society!

We wrapped up selling the 50/50 tickets, then after the great steak dinner,
and a last call for ticket sales, we interrupted the super "Blue Light Special"
band long enough to draw the winner.
The pot had grown to $584.00; $292 each for the winner and ACS.
The winner gave his share back!
But wait, there's more...
About a half hour later he took me aside and gave me
a check to the American Cancer Society for an additional
$500.00, in memory of his late wife!
That brought the total for ACS for the evening to $1084.00,
and with the additional $25 for the hood signature,
the total for the event came to $1109.00!
Thank you all who helped make this possible, especially Joe & Vera!

I did a quick walk through of the National Corvette Museum before
leaving Bowling Green. Here are a few of the sights.
Roy Orbison's last (of many) Corvettes!
The old Maine "Lobster" plate off the Corvettes Conquer Cancer C5
graces the "Corvette Lifestyle" section.
