HISTORY OF CORVETTES OF BAKERSFIELD

THE HISTORY OF
CORVETTES OF BAKERSFIELD INC.


A little bit of past and present history about Corvettes of Bakersfield, Inc., a non-profit organization. It was established in November 1967 as Associated Corvettes, a Bakersfield Corvette club and a voting member of The Western States Corvette Council. In 1969 Associated Corvettes brought to Bakersfield and hosted one of the largest Corvette Conventions in the Western States. The Corvette Council’s Pre-convention, with Corvettes coming from as far away as Mississippi, put Bakersfield on the Corvette map.

With a name change in the early 1970’s the club became known as Corvettes of Bakersfield, a better fitting name to promote and enhance the image of Kern County and the City of Bakersfield to the rest of the Corvette Clubs, their families and our Kern County Sponsors and Charities.

Today Corvettes of Bakersfield, Inc. has a membership of 74 families, meets the second Tuesday of every month at Three Way Chevrolet on 4501 Wible Road in Bakersfield at 7:00 pm. Three Way Chevrolet is our main sponsor and donates their meeting room for our use.

Through club member donations, car shows, runs and BBQ’s, Corvettes of Bakersfield supports several local charities. In 1992 Corvettes of Bakersfield hosted the First Annual Gambler’s Classic Car Show in Lake Havasu, Nevada. Today, Corvettes of Bakersfield is working on our 19th Annual Gamblers Classic to be held in Laughlin Nevada in April of 2016. With over 700 Corvettes attending in previous shows, the Gambler’s Classic has become the largest anticipated Corvette Show in the Western States.

All proceeds collected from the car show are brought back to Kern County for our local charities. To date Corvettes of Bakersfield has donated close to $250,000 to charities in and around Bakersfield. Some of these charities, to name a few, have been Alpha Canine Sanctuary, Arthritis Association Aquatic Center, Avon Walk for Life, Bakersfield College Scholarships, Bethany Homeless Services, Calif. Highway Patrol Widows and Orphans Fund, Calif. Living Museum, Car Quest Cancer Kids Christmas Fund, Crippled Children’s Society, Groynedd Merc Academy, Hoffman Hospice, Homemaker Care Program, Jameson Children’s Center, Kern County Search & Rescue, The SPCA, Love Inc., Muscular Dystrophy Association, Special Olympics, The Friendship House and Three Way Chevrolet’s Charity Golf Tournament. Corvettes of Bakersfield has also donated to several other local charities on an as needed basis when asked.

This year Corvettes of Bakersfield and its 74+ families will be celebrating our 49th anniversary with a party, charity giveaway and a new membership drive. It will be held for past, present and future members and our selected charities and invited guests.

The charities this year, voted on by our members to receive donations will be: Alzheimer's Disease Association of Kern County, A. Miriam Jamison Center, N8 pediatrics Brain Tumor,
Flood Bakersfield Ministries, Kern County Cancer Fund, 999 Foundation, Kern Valley Search and Rescue, Marley's Mutts, HALT-Helping Animals Live Tomorrow and the A.L.S. Association.

Corvettes of Bakersfield, Inc. would like to thank all of its members, sponsors, friends and volunteers for all the support, love and time donated to our cause.
