The Corvette Enthusiasts Community Foundation is a charitable organization that grew out of the Corvette Club of Delaware Valley. For decades the CCDV has been holding the Cavalcade of Corvettes and donating the proceeds to the Sunshine Foundation and Juvenile Diabetes. As the club grew, so did the donations. In 1994 when the club decided to raffle off a Corvette for charity, the CECF was created. We've given away a Corvette every year since (23 and counting) then and donated the proceeds to various public charities and less fortunate individuals in our community. Since it was founded the CECF has raised over $500,000 for charity.
CECF is a registered charitable organization in the state of Pennsylvania and is authorized to receive tax deductible contributions by the Internal Revenue Service.
Remember, the cost of your ticket is considered a tax deductible contribution! We are proud of what we have accomplished thus far and hope we can do even more in the future, so please help us succeed by supporting the corvette raffle.
