Lakeshore Corvette Club Working With Our Community
Sharing Our Club's Time, Talent, and Treasure
Lakeshore Corvette Club has made it our annual mission to promote and support various local community programs. Our club develops several car club events each year which results in proceeds that we give back to our various programs helping the development of our community. Our Club shares a philosophy of giving back!
We organize and participate in our own club Spring Fling! Charity auction to raise funds. Different events, car shows, etc. are evaluated on a year by year basis to be flexible with opportunities to raise money.

Cars Against Cancer is a car show to raise money for cancer research at Van Andel Institute where 100% of our donations go directly to research. All vehicles are welcome and encouraged to join us in this cause to provide hope for everyone affected by cancer.
Toys for Tots
As a community-driven initiative, we are excited to come together to spread joy and make a positive impact on the lives of children in need during the holiday season. Through this project, we aim to collect toys for the Marine Toys for Tots Program, which distributes time to less fortunate children in our community.
We work as a club to engage individuals, businesses, and organizations in our community to participate and contribute to the toy drive. This helps to foster a sense of unity and compassion within our community by working together towards a common goal of spreading joy and making a positive impact.
We held our first toy drive as a club in 2023 and we collected $6,400 in toys for our local community.
Please join us for our 2024 Toy Drive scheduled for Saturday, December 7, 2024.
Holland Rescue Mission
In the wake of a devastating fire that struck Holland Rescue Mission’s pantry in January 2023, Lakeshore Corvette Club quickly came together to provide support and assistance with re-stocking the pantry. The pantry serves as a lifeline for individuals and families experiencing homelessness or food insecurity.
Our participation in the pantry donation drive made a tangible difference in the lives of individuals and families served by Holland Rescue Mission. Together we were able to help turn adversity into opportunity, demonstrating the power of compassion, solidarity, and collective action.
Careerline Tech Center
The Lakeshore Corvette Club (LCC), offers a scholarship to a graduating student of the Ottawa County Careerline Technical Center who has either obtained employment or seeking employment in the automotive field. The scholarship provides assistance to purchase the tools they will need for their career. The students must apply for the scholarship. The instructors at the technical center select three or four candidates to be interviewed by a committee of LCC members. The scholarship is awarded in May.
United Way of Ottawa and Allegan Counties
By participating in a Back-to-School Supply Drive in August 2023, we were able to not just provide students with materials – we gave them tools they need to thrive academically and reach their full potential. Lakeshore Corvette Club’s generosity made a lasting impact on the lives of children and families in our community.
As a club in 2023, we collected and distributed $1,700 in school supplies that stayed here in our local community. This support and dedication to our community’s youth helps to ensure every child has the opportunity to succeed in school and beyond.
Love Sews Ministry
Lakeshore Corvette Club donated to Love Sews Ministry in Holland, Michigan. Love Sews is a Christian non-profit that works with individuals facing difficult life circumstances. Difficult circumstances can be anything from an unfavorable medical diagnosis, loss of a loved one, broken bones, depression, loneliness or anxiety. Volunteers sew a personalized lap quilt for each recipient. In 2023, Love Sews donation almost 600 lap quilts.
Each year at our member banquet, we choose a local charity to honor as our charity of the evening. In October 2023, we chose Bonnie’s Blossoms. This is a charity that is near and dear to the heart of one of our members as it was created in honor of his late wife who passed away from cancer in March 2017.
By participating in this charity drive, our club was able to help spread joy, comfort, and hope through the simple yet powerful gift of flowers. The mission of Bonnie’s Blossoms helps to carry this out by creating beautiful flower arrangements for individuals in need. Through the power of flowers, they aim to uplift spirits, foster connections, and bring smiles to faces across our community.
