Corvettes for Chip Car Show Turns Five
Devoted Car Club Preps for a New Year of Raising Awareness for Chip Miller Charitable Foundation
WEST CHESTER, PA – Each November, the rumble of small block Chevy engines and throaty exhaust notes fill the air of picturesque Chester County in Southeastern Pennsylvania. It is here that the Corvette faithful make their annual pilgrimage for fun, camaraderie, and, most of all, to raise awareness to amyloidosis which took the life of the venerable Chip Miller
The perennial event is organized and hosted by Corvettes for Chip™, an organization of Corvette enthusiasts who have joined the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation for Amyloidosis Research in fighting the dreaded blood disease. Over the last five years of the Corvettes for Chip Corvette Car Show, the Corvettes for Chip (CFC) team has donated over $38,000 to the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation (CMCF).
Many in the automotive hobby, not just Corvette enthusiasts, knew the late Chip Miller as the legendary, bigger-than-life creator of the annual Corvettes at Carlisle Corvette Show, the co-founder of world-renowned Carlisle Events, Inc., and one of the main driving forces behind the Corvette hobby.
The fifth annual Corvettes for Chip event, held November 6, 2011, was an amazing success that enabled the CFC group to honor Chip’s memory with a $13,000 donation to CMCF. Corvettes for Chip’s Vice Chairperson, Michael Crank, noted that the 300 cars made for an incredible afternoon, giving attendees the chance to see extraordinary examples of all six generations of America’s sports car, and to enjoy what Chip liked best about the hobby – the people.
Save the date on your calendars now – the Sixth Annual Corvettes for Chip event will be held Sunday, November 4, 2012.
The Chip Miller Charitable Foundation (www.chipmiller.org), as per its mission statement, was created “…to empower people with the knowledge and understanding of amyloidosis for early detection, ensuring a better quality of life for those afflicted with the disease and to help science find the cures.”

What Everyone Should Know
Amyloidosis occurs when enough abnormal protein, called amyloid, builds up in one or more organs to cause a malfunction. As an abnormal protein, amyloid originates in bone marrow. The heart, kidneys, nervous system and gastrointestinal tract are most often affected by the disease.
Signs and symptoms of amyloidosis depend on the organs affected. The wide range of symptoms makes it difficult to diagnose. For more information about amyloidosis – including signs/symptoms -- visit the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation website http://chipmiller.org/about_amyloid.php.
The mission of the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation is to empower people with the knowledge and understanding of amyloidosis for earlier detection, ensuring a better quality of life for those afflicted with the disease and to help science find the cures. To learn more about amyloidosis and to make a donation to the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation, visit our site at www.ChipMiller.org.
