Larry and Verna Courtney, who founded the group Corvettes on Woodward in metro Detroit six years ago as a way to meet other ’Vett lovers, added a charitable component with the Drive2EndHunger.
Each year, during the Woodward Dream Cruise that the Courtney’s organize a Corvettes on Woodward event where Corvette lovers get together for three days of cruising, car shows and entertainment. Larry said the group isn’t a formal organized club, but a group that gets together each year to support the Open Hands Food Pantry and enjoy Corvettes.
“There is no club or dues. All you need is a Corvette and the willingness to help support the Open Hands Food Pantry in Royal Oak either with non-perishable food, cash or both. All Corvette owners are welcome. There is no need to belong to a club. But, many clubs from all over the US and Canada participate,” Larry said.
Through Drive2EndHunger, the Courntey’s ask Corvette owners from all over the nation — and world — to bring canned goods or monetary donations that benefit the Open Hands Food Pantry in St. John's Episcopal Church in Royal Oak ....
