Default A bench at the NCM for Steve

The Steve Eddleman bench fund has been set up at the NCM. The cost of the bench is $5000. Once the bench has been fully funded and artwork approved, they will go ahead and commission the bench. It takes approximately 6 weeks to complete once the order is placed.

To contribute, you may contact the museum directly. Please be sure any payments are made out to either 'National Corvette Museum' or 'NCM' with 'Steve Eddleman fund' in the memo portion. They can also do phone processing with credit card payments. These bench contributions are donations to the NCM and tax deductible as allowable by law.

Contributions can be made by the following processes:
· phoning Megan Meredith directly at 270-467-8836 or the NCM main line 800-538-3883
· mail contribution to National Corvette Museum Attn: Bench Program – 350 Corvette Dr., Bowling Green, KY 42101
· online granite bench purchase (will not be charged full amount of $5,000), enter contribution amount for processing and Steve Eddleman fund in the special instructions box on the shipping summary page
· link to order online or form to print off and mail in - http://www.corvettemuseum.com/brick/index.shtml

It would be ideal if the bench is completed well in advance of Barn Raising II, so that we can all make arrangements to be there for the unveiling.

I'm sure that Eric would have no problem with it. I will ask him when he gets to answer my last email to him. I hope that I will be able to contribute to it.

If you can spare a dollar, that would be a contribution. No one need know the amount that anyone else contributed.

From what I recall with previous benches, once a bench has been ordered, you call up the NCM (800-53-VETTE) and ask to make a donation to the bench fund. Once they have collected the requisite funds, the bench is commissioned.

Do you have the number? Most of us here in VB are generous, but lazy.

IIRC, it usually runs north of $3500. I'm willing to donate to this cause.
