You Can Win a 2020 Corvette for Charity
The all-new 2020 Corvette is already set to be a game-changer for the brand with its mid-ending design. Now, the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation (CMAF) is looking to use the revolutionary supercar to potentially save the lives of those afflicted with amyloidosis. Starting immediately and ending at 5:00 pm on May 1, 2020, you can make a donation to the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation for a chance to drive away in the next generation of Mr. Miller’s favorite vehicle.
Chip Miller, born as Elliot Miller, was an American entrepreneur who is best known for co-founding the car show juggernaut Carlisle Events. More relevant is the fact that Chip was a Corvette enthusiast to the nth degree. After seeing a magazine advertisement for the 1957 Corvette, a seed was planted that came to define his legacy. During his life, he went on to own more than 80 Corvettes.
The next chapter of Mr. Miller’s Legacy: The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette
In December 2003, Chip Miller was diagnosed with a rare disease called amyloidosis, which can cause life-threatening organ failure. Tragically, in 2004, the illness robbed the automotive world of one of its most passionate figures, to say nothing of the loss inflicted on his friends and family. By all accounts, everybody who worked with him saw him as the perfect embodiment of a gentleman, a role model, and a true car lover.
In response, Chip’s wife Judy and his close friend Bill Miller (no relation) founded the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation. This organization events and auctions that help fund studies to improve early detection of the disease, improve the quality of life for those already diagnosed, and work towards finding a cure.
Already have a Chevy?: Get the most out of it
If you want to support the CMAF and maybe end up with one of the most poetically-charged Corvettes ever to grace the road, you can make donations at ChipMiller.org. Amounts start at $25 for three tickets and go as high as $2,500 for 375. Considering that money donated to the organization will be used to help save lives and the fact that pre-orders for the 2020 Corvette are flying off of the proverbial shelves, you’re likely to find several less favorable deals during the holiday season.
