2022 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray

This mid-engine C8 supercar packs a 6.2-liter V8 that makes 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft. torque, is connected to the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission. The Chevy Z51 Performance Package adds performance suspension, electronic limited-slip differential, performance rear axle and upgraded Brembo brakes. You get all that, and a removable top in carbon fiber. GM claims this beast can reach 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds.

About Ronald McDonald House Central Valley
The first Ronald McDonald House in Central Valley opened on Millbrook Avenue in 1984. It was the fourth Ronald McDonald House to open their doors in California and partnered with Valley Children’s Hospital. As the area around it grows, the need for hospitals also grows. When the hospital moved to a new location in about 20 minutes, so did the Ronald McDonald House.
On February 14, 2001, the organization expanded to the 18 bedroom Ronald McDonald House adjacent to Valley Children’s Hospital in Madera, California. The new Ronald McDonald House has three wings with 18 private guest rooms. Each room has 2 queen beds, a private bathroom and satellite TV. Fully equipped kitchens and private refrigerators feature every guest room. In 2013, the facility launched Daytime Room Service, which provides waiting families a room at home to rest, shower, and enjoy home-cooked meals. This service has enabled RMHCV to serve hundreds of additional families each year and carry out its mission of #KeepingFamiliesClose.
