For nine consecutive years, Kosair Charities volunteers have organized the rebuilding and raffling off a vintage car to raise funds for Kosair Kids® needing organ transplants. This year, Kosair Charities volunteer, Robert Hart, and his team will be selling $10 raffle tickets for one lucky person to win a 1971 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
This Corvette Stingray will be on display at the following events:
- September 28-30: Barbeque on the River (Paducah, KY)
- October 12-15: GoodGuys Nostalgia Nationals (Beech Bend Raceway)
- October 21-22: Louisville Fall Swap Meet (Fair & Expo Center West Wing, Louisville)
Tickets can be purchased by visiting the events listed above, online at www.kosaircar.com or mailing a check made payable to Kosair Shrine to Kosair Charities, P.O. Box 37370, Louisville, KY 40233. You can also purchase raffle tickets at Craig and Landreth (5357 Dixie Hwy. Louisville, KY 40216).
The $10 raffle ticket also serves as an entry into the Classic Car Giveaway Celebration at the Kosair Shrine Center on November 10th. The celebration includes live music by The Monarchs, a cash bar, appetizers, a silent auction and the drawing of the winning ticket. The doors open at 6 p.m. with the winning ticket drawn at 9 p.m. All net proceeds from tickets sold will benefit Kosair Charities.
The car giveaway has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for Kosair Kids® since 2009. In 2016, the car giveaway grossed approximately $150,000. Thanks to generous support from our sponsors and the community, Kosair Charities and Trust for Life are able to better the lives are children across Kentucky and Southern Indiana.
