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.
The Colorado River Corvette Club generously supports "year after year" many programs in our communities involving Veterans, Homeless, Children, the Elderly, the Environment, and Youth Sports Teams. 2018 was no exception.
At our annual Christmas Party and Awards Banquet, four (4) checks for $1,500 each, a total of $6,000 was presented to a variety of organizations that are both worthy and deserving of our support. We thank them ALL for their hard work, dedication and financial support to the communities and people they serve.

The American Cancer Society
The Mohave County Sheriff's K-9 Foundation
