The auction of the last 7th generation Chevrolet Corvette and first 8th generation mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray raised more than $400,000.
GM Canada and Chevrolet donated these two Corvettes that both went to one bidder last night at a live auction hosted by Manheim Canada auction house, who also donated their services for the cause. The highest bid for the 7th generation Corvette was $187,500 and the 8th generation mid-engine Corvette Stingray sold for $181,000.
Thanks to the support from Unifor, GM Canada, its employees and retirees, and donations from community members, Durham Children’s Aid Foundation has received over $35,000 in online donations. The winning bidder will also receive a day on the track at Canadian racing legend and former Corvette driver, Ron Fellow’s Performance Driving Schools at Spring Mountain, Nevada and Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, Ontario.
