Bergstrom Automotive Drive for a Cure

Friday, August 15 and Saturday, August 16, 2014

The Bergstrom Automotive Drive for a Cure, organized by Bergstrom Automotive, will be held Friday, August 15 and Saturday, August 16, at Bergstrom on Victory Lane in Appleton.

Bergstrom Automotive Drive For a Cure

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 closed, 12-mile 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. Drivers must be 21 years of age or older.

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

In the past two years, Bergstrom Drive for a Cure raised more than $100,000 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.
