It was a lucky day for John Williamson, a retired steelworker from Steelton, Pennsylvania. After participating in the last seven Corvette Dream Giveaway events, Williamson was drawn as the grand prize winner.
According to a report published by Corvette Blogger on Tuesday, he didn’t believe the phone call at first and it took some convincing to ensure Williamson that he, in fact, was the winner. He made his way to Clearwater, Florida, to take possession of the two Corvettes and a cash prize to cover the taxes.
The 2017 Corvette Dream Giveaway saw off a 2018 C7 Corvette Z06 Lingenfelter Signature Edition and a 1963 C2 Corvette Sting Ray. Williamson said he’s never had the opportunity to even drive a Corvette. Now, he has two to choose from every day.
The giveaway benefits numerous good causes, including the New Beginning Children’s Homes (NBCH), a provider of long-term residential care for foster children, as well as grants to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).
At the end of the day, someone has to win. Williamson happened to be the lucky one this time.
