The Arc Central Chesapeake Region (The Arc) is pleased to announce that Corvette Annapolis donated the $9,000 raised during their annual Corvette on West Street Show this year to The Arc, the largest single donation the club has ever given to an organization.
The money for this gift was raised at their recent Corvette Show on August 13, an all-Corvette show with a stunning line-up of 85 show-quality vehicles from the past and the present, dating from 1953 to 2023. The event was attended by John Davis, host of the nationally syndicated Motor Week TV show, and the Show Chairs for the event were Carroll Hynson Jr., Paul Acito, and Todd Patterson.
“We are honored to be the recipient of the largest-ever donation from the Annapolis Corvette Club,” said Jonathon Rondeau, President & CEO of The Arc. “We are excited to use this funding to continue our good work in the community by providing high-quality services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.”
In addition to the $9,000 raised during the Carriages on West Street event, another $1,000 was also donated to The Arc thanks to the Corvette Club’s partnership with JBA Chevrolet, bringing the total donation amount received from the event to $10,000.
“It is incredible to have such a meaningful, impactful relationship with an organization like Corvette Annapolis,” said Taryn Chase, Development Officer at The Arc, who attends the club’s monthly meetings. “I am continually impressed with the Annapolis Corvette’s dedication to The Arc’s mission and am excited to see the ways this donation makes an impact in people’s lives in the local community.”
In addition to this gift, Corvette Annapolis also has a history of generously supporting The Arc’s Holiday Giving program, which provides holiday gifts and grocery store gift cards to hundreds of local children and their families during the holiday season. The Arc is grateful for their ongoing support as we continue to innovate and expand our services throughout the region.
