KENNEWICK, WA - New and classic sports cars are taking over Columbia Park this weekend for the 5th Annual Corvettes on the Columbia.

This year, McCurley Integrity Dealership and the 3 Rivers Corvette Club are partnering with the Red Lion Hotel in Pasco to make a weekend out of the car show.

More than 230 cars, from seven states and Canada, will be on display at Columbia Park. Organizers have also added a comedy show, concert and race to the list of events.

Proceeds from the car show help grant wishes for children in Washington, who are fighting life-threatening illnesses.

"The average cost is about $5,000 for a wish and that varies," said Leslie Woodfill, the regional co-director for Make-A-Wish Washington. "One of the things we try to do is get about 60% of that donated... that money then grows and grows, and helps other wishes come true."

Last year, the event raised enough money to grant the wishes of 8 children. Organizers are shooting for 10 wishes this year. Currently, there are 21 children in Eastern Washington on a wait list for "wishes."
