Drive For Life Event

Drive For Lifeā„¢

The Zeigler Auto Group, Greenleaf Trust and Huntington Bank present the Drive for Life, one of the longest-standing and largest charitable galas of its kind in Michigan. The Drive for Life is exactly what its name suggests; a charitable foundation established to bring help and support to those in our community who need it most. The Drive for Life’s primary beneficiary is the American Cancer Society of Southwest Michigan, supporting patients in their treatment process along with other noteworthy causes such as MRC Industries, where individuals with disabilities are provided employment opportunities and personal development, as well as many other great and important causes.

2018 marks the 37th year for the Drive for Life, raising over $3 Million for the beneficiaries we support. The gala is sponsored by many great companies who generously support the Drive for Life cause. Tickets to the gala can be purchased for $250 providing the ticket holder and their guest an amazing evening with a social cocktail hour, a silent auction full of incredible items, a live auction with one-of-a-kind opportunities and a chance to win a new car or $30,000.
