AACA Museum Makes $1,000 Donation to Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation

Oct 28, 2019

In a surprise donation, the AACA Museum gave $1,000 to the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation during an event earlier this month.

The Night at the Museum event held annually in Hershey, Pennsylvania, is a fundraiser that also spotlights major contributors to the automotive hobby. For 2019, Chip Miller and Bill Miller, Jr. were tapped as Legacy Award Winners. Bill Miller, Jr. was present and accepting on behalf of Chip was his son, Lance Miller.

The organization aims to expand awareness for Amyloidosis, a disease which effects amyloid protein deposits in the body.

“The AACA Museum, Inc. was excited to honor Chip Miller with the AACA Museum Automotive Heritage Award. In Chip’s honor, we were happy to provide a $1,000 donation to the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation,” noted Nancy Gates, Director of Marketing and Communications for the museum.

Miller recalled this special moment too, noting that “my father was smiling down and certainly humbled by the AACA award. The AACA Museum made a $1,000 donation towards the CMAF, what a wonderful and extremely generous surprise. Every penny earned goes towards a cause that my family, board members and myself fully believe in. Amyloidosis may have caused my best friend and father to pass away way too early, but amyloidosis also provided us with a mission This donation goes directly towards our mission and I’m grateful!”
