Every month, Dream Giveaway Garage brings you a behind-the-scenes look at Dream Giveaway® grand-prizes, the charities that benefit from your donation, the companies that help us build the grand-prize cars, and the lucky winners!
It’s time to ramp up for another running of the Corvette Dream Giveaway brought to you by Corvette Central. This year we are giving away the Corvette the entire world has been waiting for — the 2020 mid-engine Stingray, the first production mid-engine Corvette in the model’s 68-year history.
In true Dream Giveaway tradition, we loaded up this new Torch Red Corvette with nearly every available factory option.
So, when you enter and win you’ll bring home this incredible mid-engine Corvette with everything on it, including the 3LT Premium Interior, Z51 Performance Package, upgraded factory wheels and tires and a whole lot more.
But that’s not all.
Two Corvettes are better than one. So, we’ve paired this eighth-generation, top-of-the-line Corvette Stingray with a true classic — a show-quality 1962 Corvette roadster (with removable hard top), which was built at a cost of over $200K.
The car experts at the Dream Giveaway Garage handpicked this timeless American sports car for die-hard car fans like you. It features flawless Salsa Red exterior paint, soft-and-supple Flame Red leather-wrapped seats, an incredible ZR1-style hood with engine-reveal insert, a custom front grille fabricated from 1957 and 1958 Corvettes and big-dollar upgrades from bumper to bumper.
Many Chevy dealers are already sold out of their allocation of the new Corvette so head on over to Dreamgiveaway.com and stock up on entries. You may just be one of the first people in the United States to park a new mid-engine Corvette in their garage and you better make room in there for one of the most legendary first-generation Corvettes ever made, too.
Focus RS Dream Giveaway Ends In
Boomer, our personable Dream Giveaway Garage brand ambassador who you often see in our YouTube videos, has a saying that he lives by: You can never have too much horsepower. (He also says you can never be too good looking or never have enough money, but those are different subjects.)
That’s why you should check out this grand-prize 2018 Ford Focus RS starring in the soon-to-end Focus RS Dream Giveaway.
We’re talking 450 horsepower backed by a six-speed manual transmission with stopping power coming from beefy Brembo disc brakes at all four corners.
If your daily grocery getter gives you the blahs, this grand-prize Ford Focus will get you from stoplight to stoplight as quick as many Corvettes. And there’s more. This instantly collectible Ford Focus RS carries on the performance tradition of Ford’s legendary vehicles like the Shelby GT500 Mustang and the Ford GT.
Time is running out for you to win this sports-car-quick 450hp Ford Focus RS. You only have until midnight on Tuesday, February 25th to stock up on entries. Make your generous donation today to win at www.dreamgiveaway.com. We will announce the winner in March 2020. (Hey, that’s next month!)
Do you know the old saying: “Winning isn’t everything”?
Well, whoever wrote that catchy phrase wasn’t at ground zero in the Dream Giveaway Garage last month when our two Kens (Ken Ferguson of New Beginning Children’s Homes and Ken Lingenfelter of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering) handed over two shiny car keys to the most incredible front-engine Corvettes ever produced.
That’s where Chris Southard of Indiana comes in. For eight years, Chris routinely made donations to Dream Giveaway to help great charities. This year, his lucky ticket number was drawn for a huge grand-prize— a matching pair of 1961 and 2019 Corvettes.
You know what he said? “I’ve never won anything before.”
How many of you have said that?
Here’s another one we here from winners all the time.
“I never thought I would win, but I wanted to help the charities.”
Now that’s great stuff. So, here’s our advice to you. Keep on keeping on and that means keep making your generous donations. Look for the emails that we send out and write down the promo codes so that you get bonus tickets every time you donate. There’s nothing we would enjoy more than to call YOU the winner of a life-changing Dream Giveaway grand-prize.
Remember, everybody is a winner when you go to www.dreamgiveaway.com and make a heart-felt donation to win your favorite prize package.
How does the Dream Giveaway Garage keep up on the latest performance upgrades for late-model muscle cars? The answer is our good friends at JLT Performance in Chesapeake, Virginia.

When you enter to win the world’s greatest prize packages at DreamGiveaway.com, your generous tax-deductible donation goes directly to New Beginning Children’s Homes, a non-profit organization. We recently checked in with this children’s charity and asked its team to discuss the important subject of volunteerism.
For a non-profit, some of the best and biggest resources come from those who volunteer their time and effort to helping the cause. For many groups, the work that needs to be done —both at their facility and in the community — is just too great to be done solely by paid staff.
Volunteering rewards and benefits go both ways. Not only is it a great help to the organization, but for volunteers there is a wonderful personal benefit when you come alongside an organization and help others through their cause.
For New Beginnings, many people and groups have donated their time and energy to help forward the mission of Dream Giveaway’s sponsor charity. One example is Julie Beckloff, who has joined forces with New Beginnings to be a Life Coach to the young ladies coming into the New Beginnings Youth Homes program. She gives of her time to share her expertise and encouragement to these girls who learning all that they can to be successful, self-sustaining young adults. It is people like Julie who make it possible for an organization such as New Beginnings to expand its programs and the reach of its mission.
New Beginnings’ motto is “Making Jesus Known and Rewriting Futures!” Those who join in that mission help NBCH make an even great impact in the lives of those it reaches. NBCH could not do what it does without those who are willing to give of themselves to make a difference.
Visit www.dreamgiveaway.com today and make a heartfelt donation to enter to win some amazing prize packages. When you do so, you’ll be helping New Beginning Children’s Homes fund its very important services to displaced children and young adults.
Congratulations to Ken Oxford of California, the grand-prize winner in the Chevy C-10 Dream Giveaway.
