Illinois Car Enthusiast Wins 2013 Corvette Dream Giveaway And Will Receive Two Amazing 427 Vettes!
A 58 year-old car enthusiast from Moline, Illinois donated a total of $40 to help New Life Center and ended-up winning two Corvettes and $45,000 towards prize taxes in the Corvette Dream Giveaway. He'll receive his rare Corvettes on January 31st.
Mr. DeGreve will soon become the proud owner of both a 1969 Corvette 427 Convertible and a matching 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible!
Mr. DeGreve entered the giveaway on two separate occasions each time making a $20 donation. He was stunned when he received the winning phone call, “When they told me I had won I was in shock,” Mr. DeGreve said. “You never really plan on winning something like this.”
Mr. DeGreve, who in his free time enjoys detailing cars, going for drives with his wife Julie, and spending time with his two grandsons Cam and Eli, has worked for John Deere for the past 37 years. It wasn’t until he received an email for the Corvette Dream Giveaway that he decided to enter, “I have been an automotive enthusiast my entire life,” Mr. DeGreve said. “My wife is always telling me how I need to go to AA…Automobiles Anonymous.”
Mr. DeGreve along with his wife will accept the keys to both Corvettes on January 31, 2014. As excited as Mr. DeGreve was to be named the winner of the giveaway, he didn’t forget the causes his donation went to support, “Having the opportunity to help support a great cause such as this is the best part of it all,” Mr. DeGreve said. “It makes your decision to enter so easy because you know your donation will be helping a wonderful cause.”
For over four decades New Life Center has provided food, support & emergency shelter for needy families with children. The charity continues that support as they share facilities with an independent program that provides treatment for recovery & re-entry for individuals and families dealing with addiction. New Life Center has chosen to provide grants from the proceeds of this nationwide giveaway to the Detroit Rescue Mission and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).
The Board of Directors, staff and volunteers at NLC are most grateful to everyone that entered the 2013 Corvette Dream Giveaway and wish to express their sincere appreciaton to all particpating corporate partners for supporting the promotion.
