"Mississippi Corvette Classic" helps Make-A-Wish Foundation

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The annual Mississippi Corvette Classic rolled in to Jackson on Saturday. 

More than 90 Corvette's lined the floor of the Jackson Convention Center for car lovers to look over.

The Mississippi Corvette Club hosts the annual event.

The organization uses funds from the event and a silent auction to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Club members say they are passionate about their cars and giving back to the community.

"In the last five years we've had a relationship with Make-A-Wish. There are over 100 children in the state of Mississippi awaiting to have their wishes granted. So, every year we work real hard to make sure that we have a great event," explains Mississippi Corvette Club member Bill Franks.

In addition to Mississippi Corvette owners, folks from Louisiana and Florida brought their classic cars to be judged in the contest.
