An all new Corvettes for a Cure with expanded, more comfortable space, was at our new home, the Center for Arts & Technology Pickering Campus located at 1580 Charlestown Road, Phoenixville, PA 19460 

At our 2008 event we had 124 Corvettes registered. Our highest number ever!  We raised over $5000, which was our goal, that will be donated directly to the Delaware Valley Alzheimer's Association shortly.  The exact total will be announced soon. This brings our 5 year total to over $14,000!

Our 2009 goal is 150 cars in attendance and to raise over $6,000 for the Association.
