Bowling Green Event Raises $11,000 for Trooper Island

museum motion KSPBOWLING GREEN, KY (12/7/12) – The “1-Lap of Kentucky” tours are popular events that quickly sell out to Corvette adventurers who like chasing a State Trooper while helping two good causes. As a part of the National Corvette Museum in Motion program, the 1-Lap tour raises money for both the Museum and Trooper Island, a Kentucky State Police non-profit camp for underprivileged children.
 
“This is our third year of doing the Corvette Tour” said retired KSP Sgt. Craig Sutton, who is the tour leader and former Director of Trooper Island. “Each year we have visited a different part of the state. We’re proud of our state and enjoy showing it off to visitors.”
 
Previous tours have visited the Land Between the Lakes and Owensboro, the Bourbon Trail and Horse Country, and most recently explored eastern Kentucky for a trip through the mining camps, Trooper Island and the Kentucky Artisan Center in Berea. “We’re planning three tours next year,” says Museum Events Manager Roc Linkov. “From this unique partnership we get to have a meaningful and fun event that provides underprivileged children with a fun and meaningful event of their own. That is a great thing.”
 
On Wednesday, December 5, 2012 Roc Linkov presented a check for $11,000 to Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rodney Brewer as Sgt. Craig Sutton presented Museum Executive Director Wendell Strode and Museum Events Associate Karen Renfrow with a plaque from the KSP in honor of the NCM's participation in this worthwhile effort.
 
While the event typically involves a large number of Corvettes, all makes and models of vehicles are welcome. Next year's event will highlight Kentucky's "Only One" attractions... all the great places and things Kentucky has that exist nowhere else in the world.
 
To learn more about the 2013 1-Lap of Kentucky event, visit the Museum's website at http://www.corvettemuseum.org/registration/one-lap/info.shtml. Registration for the tours will open late spring 2013.
