Cole Automotive Group Sponsors Touchdown for Diabetes

Cole Automotive Group is excited to announce the 20th annual Touchdown for Diabetes, which will take place on September 22, 2016 at Cole Buick GMC Cadillac, located at 6600 S. Westnedge, in Portage. For the past 20 years, Cole Automotive Group has sponsored the event, which aims to raise money for Kalamazoo’s Borgess Diabetes Uninsured Clinic, and in that time it has succeeded in raising over $1,000,000 to support the Clinic’s operations.

As the fifth leading cause of death in the United States, diabetes exacts a devastating toll, even while it is controllable when the right treatments are applied. However, treatment options are expensive—the average individual’s annual cost for care is about $1,200, not including medications—and they can be especially crippling for the uninsured. By providing care for uninsured patients with diabetes in the Kalamazoo area, the BDUC delivers an invaluable service to men and women suffering from diabetes in our community.

Cole Automotive Group’s Involvement

The BDUC—which opened 6 years ago and has provided care to 375 uninsured clients—relies in large part on the funding provided by the Cole Automotive Group. The costs of running a clinic like the BDUC are high, and include expenditures on physician care, laboratory services, and medications. However, the Cole Automotive Group has offered consistent support since the Clinic’s creation. In fact, last year alone, the Cole Automotive Group raised over $69,000 in funding for the BDUC through its Touchdown for Diabetes event.

What is Touchdown for Diabetes?

Touchdown for Diabetes is a silent auction designed to raise funds for the BDUC. Local businesses donate prizes and other auction items—tickets to WMU events, Detroit Tigers memorabilia, dinners, artwork, jewelry, and much more—and participants bid on them. In addition to the auction, Touchdown for Diabetes also features a raffle with cash prizes: 4th place brings with it $2,000; 3rd place wins $3,000; 2nd place earns $5,000; and 1st place gets $10,000. (ML License: R37750) Not only that, but Touchdown for Diabetes participants and their guests will also be able to feast on a huge spread of tailgate food during the auction.
