Roadshow BMW Donation will go towards Kosten Foundation pancreatic research efforts

Memphis, Tenn., June 25, 2021 – Roadshow BMW announced today it will donate $6,000 to the Kosten Foundation for pancreatic cancer research and support as a part of its Roadshow Gives Back Program. Kosten Foundation supporters test drove more than 100 cars to earn the maximum donation.

“We are extremely grateful to Roadshow BMW for this donation and to all of our supporters for who came out to test drive,” said Alan Kosten, Chairman of the Kosten Foundation, “It is amazing to have the support of the community and local businesses as we work to find a cure for pancreatic cancer.”

The Roadshow Gives Back program partnered with the Kosten Foundation to offer $25 for every test drive done in May. After passing the 100 test drive mark, Roadshow BMW doubled the donation up to the maximum of $6,000.

Every dollar raised by the Kosten Foundation goes toward pancreatic cancer research and support.
