Ask anyone who’s a hardcore Corvette fanatic what they’d do if they hit the Lotto and they’d say, “buy a classic Corvette Sting Ray and a brand new Z06 Corvette Stingray.”
For David Park of Highland, Utah, the dream came true and he didn’t have to waste time looking for a pair of Corvettes, the Corvette Dream Giveaway came to him!
Park was awarded a 2015 Corvette Z06 coupe and a 1967 Corvette 427 Sting Ray coupe plus $50,000 for taxes.
Park entered the 2015 Corvette Dream Giveaway on April 14th by making a $100 donation. “I would daydream about winning but I never thought I would really win,” he said. “The best part of it all though was helping the charities involved. New Beginning Children’s Homes and all of the grant charities are such a blessing in people’s lives.”
On Thursday, January 14, 2016, he received the news via telephone that he had won the 2015 Corvette Dream Giveaway. “When I got the call it was just absolute disbelief and excitement at the same time,” he said. “I am a huge car fanatic and this is a dream come true.”
Park works as a doctor and specializes in oral and maxillofacial surgery. In his free time he enjoys tinkering on cars and going boating and skiing with his family. When asked which of the two Corvettes he won he is most excited to drive, he said, “BOTH!”
The winner had this to say to the people who still don’t believe this is for real, “When my family and I arrived in Florida and saw these matching Corvettes, it was a dream come true. The cars are real.”
New Beginning Children’s Homes (NBCH) is a 501(c) 3 provider of family-style long-term residential care with a mission to provide foster children a safe and faith-centered family atmosphere where they can heal, grow, and be loved while working through difficult life issues. In addition to the funding they received, NBCH provided grants to several worthwhile charities, including Disabled American Veterans, National Guard Educational Foundation, Smile Network International, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries.
