Raffle tickets are available for the 26th Annual Classic Corvette Giveaway benefiting Saint Bernard Parish and School in Rockport, Indiana. This year’s car is a venetian red 1957 Corvette Convertible. This Corvette was purchased from 2010 raffle winner Jeff Morrison, who graciously offered to help out the parish by selling it back to them at a substantial discount.
“This is the only time in our history that we have raffled the same car twice," said David Lovell of Saint Bernard Parish. "We really appreciate and thank Jeff Morrison for his support. We loved this Corvette so much that we're giving everyone an opportunity to win it again."
Tickets for the Corvette are sold to enthusiasts from all over the world and plenty of opportunities are still available. The number to order tickets is 812-362-7313. Ticket orders may also be downloaded from www.StBernardCorvette.org where photos and videos of the car are featured. The cost of each opportunity is $30.00 or 4 for $100.00. Up to 12,000 tickets will be sold.
The winner will be drawn on Sunday, July 13 at 5:00 p.m. CDT at the annual Saint Bernard Summer Social on the church grounds at 6th & Elm St. in Rockport, Indiana. Admission is free. The Summer Social hours are 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and everyone in the community is invited to attend.
