NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – A local group of car enthusiasts used their passion for Corvettes to support a good cause recently when they donated more than $1,000 to The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital (BMSCH) at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
The donation will support various pediatric programs at the children’s hospital, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
Founded in 1974, the club currently has 35 members who are all Corvette owners. In addition to hosting regular meetings and car shows, the group also hosts “tech” sessions during which show-judging techniques are analyzed and auto detailing is discussed.

“This is a great way to use our hobby to do something positive and help the families and children of our community,” explained Club President Michael Beltranena.
The group’s car show was made possible by the following sponsors: Martin Financial Group; Alexander Plumbing; Corvette Guys; Vette Vues Magazine; Frankie’s Café; South Brunswick PBA 166; New Brunswick PBA Local 23; Strato, Inc.; Award Pros; National Corvette Museum; SLP Performance Parts, Inc.; 6th Ward Service Center; Fuji; FOP South Brunswick Lodge 51; DANCAR Holsten Service and West Coast Corvettes.
