Drive home a Corvette and you will improve the life of a veteran. Owning “America’s Sports Car” will help an American hero suffering from post-traumatic stress or traumatic brain injury by pairing them with a lifesaving service dog. Thanks to Jeff Tripician, president of Perdue Premium Meat Company and Coleman Natural, a beautiful 2002 C-5 Corvette Convertible is up for auction.
The Corvette is a piece of American history. In 1953, Chevrolet displayed the first full-scale Corvette at the Waldorf Astoria, a 2-seat convertible boasting a 6-cylinder engine. When it went into production, the car took its name from a U.S. Navy warship. When Alan Shepard, the first American in space, returned from the cosmos, he hopped into his Corvette. It became the de-facto car of astronauts and automobile aficionados around the country. In fact, the Corvette has been a mainstay of American roads for nearly seven decades.
Today, you not only have the chance to own a bit of this history but also to help an American veteran in need. The winning bid on this Corvette will pair a veteran suffering from PTS or TBI with a specially trained service dog through American Humane’s Pups4PatriotsTM program. Properly training a service dog costs $30,000 making it financially out of reach for many veterans who could benefit greatly by having a four-legged partner by their side. The Pups4PatriotsTM program pairs and trains lifesaving service dogs with veterans, at no cost.
So please, help a Vet today by driving home a Vette. Bid here.
