Sharon's Kids Corvettes for Kids

GM Canada and Chevrolet announce the Durham Children’s Aid Foundation raised over $400,000 in support of Sharon’s Kids following the C7 and C8 Corvette Auction.

Two iconic Corvettes were donated for public auction – the last 7th generation Chevrolet Corvette and first 8th generation mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray built for Canada, that both went to one bidder, Paul Sadlon of Barrie. The live public auction was hosted by Manheim Canada, who also donated their services for the cause.

The highest bid for the 7th generation Corvette was $187,500 and the 8th generation mid-engine Corvette Stingray sold for $181,000. And thanks to the support from Unifor, GM Canada, employees and retirees, and donations from community members, Durham Children’s Aid Foundation has received over $35,000 in online donations.

“These new Corvette owners have purchased a piece of Canadian history with these iconic vehicles,” said Scott Bell, GM Canada president and managing director. “We couldn’t be prouder of the response we’ve received from the community to create awareness and raise money for Sharon’s Kids, which will provide children and youth with support this holiday season. Thank you!”

Congratulations to Paul and thank you to everyone who helped raise more than $400,000 for the Durham Children’s Aid Foundation. You can continue to make a direct donation today that will help buy Christmas gifts for kids in need this holiday season.
