CHARITIES SUPPORTED

Giving back to our communities (Bullhead City, Laughlin, Kingman and Lake Havasu City) is a very important part of what the Colorado River Corvette Club is all about.   

As you know, our club generously supports year after year many charitable programs in our communities involving Veterans, homeless, children and youth programs, law enforcement, elderly and the environment.

Just last month our club once again supported Laps for Children’s Charities at the Las Vegas Speedway raising thousands of dollars to benefit many local programs for children.


In 2020, our club voted to support three (3) local charitable organizations, and to let them know that ALL of them, , are “appreciated and valued” for their services and commitment to our
communities…..
It is our pleasure to be able to support and hopefully enhance each of their programs by donating
$2,000 to each organization.

CLOTHE THE KIDS PROGRAM – KINGMAN – Representing the Clothe the Kids Program is
President DARIN EDWARDS AND PAST PRESIDENT…..MARCIA BEECHAM.


Sponsored by Kingman Powerhouse Kiwanis, this is their 23rd year clothing low income children in the Kingman school districts.
The kids are dropped off at the Kingman Academy, then taken by the busload over to Walmart, and with
volunteers each assigned a child, they get to shop for clothing up to $100. Santa is there and they are treated to
hot chocolate, cookies and holiday songs. The children are selected through an applications process grades K
through 5.
In their first year, they clothed 30 children at $30 each. Two (2) years ago they clothed 165 children at $100
each, and that number grows year after year. The program also raises thousands of dollars annually for high
school seniors, so they can attend college.

MOHAVE COUNTY SHERIFF’S K-9 FOUNDATION – Representing the Sheriff’s K-9 Unit is the
President, Sgt. JOHN SANCHELLI AND CHERI AHLEMEIR.


The foundations mission is to provide financial support for the Sheriff’s Canine Unit and its volunteers, and
promote community relations to area businesses, organizations and individuals. Donations help to maintain,
feed and train these wonderful dogs to fight crime, protect their handlers, and protect the public.

CASA COUNCIL OF MOHAVE COUNTY – Representing Casa Council of Mohave County is
CEO RON STEPHAN and KARIN STEPHAN.


In 2008 a group of CASA’s (Court Appointed Special Advocates) realized that the foster children they served
had many needs that couldn’t be met because funding wasn’t available. Through their dedicated efforts to better serve foster children, the CASA Council of Mohave County was formed.
The CASA Council strives to enhance the lives of dependent children through advocacy and fulfillment of their “unmet needs” by helping to provide funding for a variety of “essentials” - which promotes self esteem and enriches the lives of dependent children and young adults.


The CASA Council believes that foster children need, and deserve what any child needs -“opportunity” The
“opportunity” to play sports, take music, art and dance lessons. The “opportunity” to get assistance if they fall
behind in school, or go to summer camp. In short.. the “opportunity to be a child”..
