WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Car enthusiasts celebrated the 60th anniversary of an American classic while supporting a good cause Sunday.
The Cape Fear Corvette Club held its annual show at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet.
More than 130 Corvettes dating back to 1960 were on display and in competition.
Proceeds benefited the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.
Jeff Rose of the Food Bank said they've seen increased demand because of problems with a new state computer system called N.C. Fast.
"Folks who were seeking DSS or food stamps are now finding a little longer lines, so they're going into the food pantries, they're going into soup kitchens to make ends meat," Rose said.
Congressman Mike McIntyre's office announced that he will tour the Food Bank's Wilmington office Monday.
