About the Drive for Life Foundation

From Humble Beginnings
To Over $XXM In Support

For nearly four decades, the Drive for Life Gala has attracted the support of business leaders, sponsors and volunteers; bringing the Kalamazoo community together for an extraordinary night of charity.

The Drive for Life Gala debuted in 1982 with a starting ticket price of just $1, raising less than $20,000 for the American Cancer Society. Today, the annual Drive for Life Foundation Charity Gala is presented by Zeigler Auto Group, Greenleaf Trust, Brown & Brown Dealer Services and Huntington Bank and benefits the American Cancer Society and other local charities with over $400,000 in annual support.
