Corvettes for Kids

Corvettes for Kids was on August 8, 2010. It was a humbling experience. Corvettes for Kids pick one child each year to be their “spokes child” and this year they chose Dillon. They have a Corvette show with a silent auction, a live auction, food, games, etc all to benefit the kids. This was their 25th year and this year their total raised for all the years went over one million dollars.

These people are all volunteers and do it just because they love helping the children with medical issues get the things that insurance won’t cover. When I pulled up and saw the huge school yard filled with over 200 corvettes, knowing they were there to help DILLON – MY Dillon – it was humbling. God is amazing how he always provides for us by using generous people. People are amazing for giving of their time, energy, and money to help. Friends of ours from church spent time getting companies to donate items for the auction and then they came to the event. I know I keep using this word, but it is the best word for it – humbling. To know our friends, family, and strangers gave of their time to help us…. Thank you.

Thank you to everyone involved in the event!!!

P.S. It worked out that Josiah’s parents and sister were able to come for the weekend. It was the first time Hannah got to see Truett so that was great too.
