Corvette owners like to get together, whether it’s at the annual homecoming in Bowling Green, Kentucky or at Bloomington Gold, or each summer at Corvettes at Carlisle. For the past eight years, they’ve also traveled to take part in the Corvettes for Chip show.

Event raises money to fight Amyloidosis

This year, Corvettes for Chip will be held for the first time in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where Chip Miller staged his first Corvette gathering and where he helped establish Carlisle Events as a major producer of car shows for various brands.

The ninth annual Corvettes for Chip show is scheduled for November 5 at the Carlisle Expo Center and again is being held to benefit the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation. Participants also are asked to bring toys to contribute to the Toys for Tots drive.

The event, which begins at 8:30 a.m. and runs through 2 p.m., will include a mid-day engine rev.

“The Corvettes for Chip event is always a blast and I’m honored to be a part of it each year,” Lance Miller, Chip’s son and co-owner of Carlisle Event, said in a news release. “I’m really excited that the event will be hosted in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, this year.

“I know my father will certainly be smiling down upon us on. It’s wonderful knowing he’s still making an impact today, 14 years after his passing.”
