50 Year of Le Mans Film Premiere Raises Funds for Chip Miller Foundation
With all the makings of a Hollywood drama, love story and action film, “The Quest” documents the incredible story of the first Corvette to win its class at the famous track in Le Mans France in 1960. Of course the car couldn’t have done it alone – “The Quest” tells the untold tale of the driver and the man who dreamed to take the car back to France for the 50th anniversary of the win but who lost his life early to a rare disease called Amyloidosis.
For one night only, the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation (CMCF) is premiering the heartwarming documentary created by the award-winning filmmaker Michael Brown. The movie will show on Friday, May 6th at 7:30 p.m. at the Carlisle Theatre, 44 West High Street in downtown Carlisle, Pennsylvania. All proceeds from the tickets will benefit the Foundation. Visit www.QuestDocumentary.com for tickets.

Thanks to General Motors, the National Corvette Museum has obtained the bricks to use as a fundraiser for the museum.
