Local Corvette club aids organizations

I read with interest your editorial: “Nonprofit Helps Many Area Causes,” Feb. 26.

It is interesting that the motorcycle organization, Rolling Thunder, has been doing such good work, and I compliment you for acknowledging their efforts.

There is another organization, Myrtle Beach Corvette Club, that does an excellent job supporting only local charities, (Brunswick, Horry and Georgetown counties), charities that are not supported by or aligned with any national organization.

The Myrtle Beach Corvette Club was started in 1997 and at the present time has more than 250 members. The club, through the generosity of local businesses, has provided thousands of dollars to local charities and 100 percent of the money from donations received go to our charities.

In the past, our charities have included Back Pack Buddies, Hope House, Conway Police Christmas shopping trip for kids (Shop With a Cop), Sea Haven and Fostering Hope and the Cue Center funds to help find the missing Brittanee Drexel, to name a few.

Our charities this year are Canine Angels and Veterans Home & Resource Center.

The first weekend of June each year The Myrtle Beach Corvette Club holds its all-Corvette car show at Broadway at the Beach. More than 300 Corvettes from around the country attend.

The show is free and everyone is invited to help us support our charities.
