Bi-City Corvette Club presents check to Phenix City mayor

PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) – The Bi-City Corvette Club presented Phenix City Mayor Eddie Lowe with a check for $250.

The event took place on Wednesday, Jan. 3 at the utility building.

The money will go towards scholarships for students in Phenix City.

The Bi-City Corvette Club is a nonprofit agency that raises money for those less fortunate through cruises and car shows.

The funds help students go to college and also help high school students get college credit during the school year with dual enrollment courses.

Mayor Lowe says it's a great cause for our young people.

"The cause is bigger than any of us. I am glad to be a part of something that we can actually see it makes a difference on people's lives," said Mayor Lowe.

The mayor's ball will be held this year at the Columbus Trade and Convention Center.
