Final Numbers from the 2012 All Corvette Show

Sunday September 23rd turned out to be a wonderful day for the club and the charities we support. Weather was perfect. Attendance of spectators was up. Corvettes were plentiful. Bill Z. was able to put together a great show, the only thing that didn't comew through was a breeze which kept the kite flyer was grounded. We registered 182 cars and that encouraged over 4000 curious spectators to browse a wonderful selection of Corvettes with many commenting on seeing so many '53, '54, and '55s. The display of early C-1s may have set a new record for the midwest at 8 in one show. We had many club members put their time and effort into setup and cleanup, garnering community sponsorships, donating 93 items for silent auction, donating items for door prizes, and getting 80 club cars out to the show. The 93 items for silent auction made $3200 that went in to the $13000 gross for the show. After expenses the club was able to donate $4000 to the Child Advocacy Center and $4000 to the Lincoln Food Bank. The show is a big job that takes many people to put it together and you can see from these numbers it is well worth it. 2012 was a great show for the NCA and our charites, maybe we can make 2013 even better.
