Children under 8 years old are Free. Adults paying $25 will enjoy a BBQ lunch paired with Williamsburg Winery wines.All admission proceeds directly benefit Operation Homefront.
An awards ceremony at 2pm will recognize winners in many categories, including “Peoples Choice”, “Best in Class”, and “Best Paint”.
The “Corvettes for the Vets” concept owes its start to efforts by several Williamsburg Winery associates who are members of the local, Colonial Corvette Club in Williamsburg. The event’s success is helped by support from this year’s sponsors – Holiday Chevrolet, Express Employment Professionals, Bay Port Credit Union, Williamsburg Event Rentals, Liberty Mutual, and Flemings Awards & Promotions.
