Bergstrom Automotive Drive for a Cure

Friday, August 21 and Saturday, August 22, 2015

The Bergstrom Automotive Drive for a Cure, organized by Bergstrom Automotive, will be held Friday, August 21 and Saturday, August 22, at two Bergstrom locations: Victory Lane in Appleton and Washburn St. (Exit 116) in Oshkosh.

Test drive the car of your dreams from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. both days. A special fleet of 100 Bergstrom vehicles including BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, Volvo, Land Rover, Acura, Audi, MINI, Infiniti, Fiat and more will be available to test drive on a specially designed closed course. For each mile driven, Bergstrom Automotive will donate $1 to breast cancer research at the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center. No advance registration is necessary. Participants must have a valid driver's license.

Complimentary food and refreshments will be available and participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt. A raffle will also be held.

In the past three years, Bergstrom Drive for a Cure raised more than $150,000 for breast cancer research at MCW.

The event is held in memory of Melodie Wilson Oldenburg, a longtime television news anchor and breast cancer advocate who died from breast cancer in 2009 at age 59. Wilson was a co-founder of the MCW Cancer Center Board, and she served on the MCW Board of Trustees with John Bergstrom, Chairman and CEO of Bergstrom Corporation.
