The High Desert Corvette Club (HDCC) announced the continuation of their successful, Corvettes on the High Desert, (the largest, all Corvette show in Central Oregon) to be held at Eagle Crest Resort Saturday, July 19. The event will feature all seven Corvette generations spanning 60 years from 1954 through 2014 with more than 100 participants in support of Bend’s KIDS Center.
In addition, it will also be the kick off of nine Corvettes and its Bend area owners to make the trek East joining with more than 250 from the Northwest and over 6,000 U.S. and international Corvettes all rendezvousing at the Corvette Museum and factory in Bowling Green, Kentucky in mid August.
Residents from Bend, Redmond, Sisters, Prineville and other locales are encouraged to attend the event which runs from 9am through 2pm Saturday, July 19. They can enjoy the excitement and have lunch and refreshments from one of the vendor’s booths. Owners will be on hand to discuss their cars and in some cases theirmodifications which run from a slight change to full out supercharged engines with 1000hp and body changes. Admission is free. An admission donation to the KIDS Center is welcomed.
According to John Burgess, president of the HDCC, the bi-annual event, “Is a wonderful way to give back to those children from around the area that have suffered abuse as well as those that work so tirelessly to support it’s cause.”
The KIDS Center provides the only direct services to child victims of abuse in Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson Counties as well as Warm Springs (with no cost to their families). They have been known throughout Central and Eastern Oregon as experts in child abuse evaluation and treatment service for over 19 years.
The High Desert Corvette Club has continuously supported local events and charities since its founding over 20 years ago. It has over 100 members from Bend, Redmond, Sisters, Prineville, Sun River and LaPine. Bend Chevrolet (Lithia) joined as the principal sponsor this year.
