Test Drive a BMW in August and Support the Kosten Foundation
Roadshow BMW will donate $25 for every test drive taken between August 1 and 31 to the Kosten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research
Memphis, Tenn., July 30, 2019 – Drivers who take a test drive at Roadshow BMW between August 1 and 31, 2019, will be helping to support the Memphis-based Kosten Foundation’s fight to end pancreatic cancer. For every test drive taken at Roadshow BMW’s dealership located at 405 N. Germantown Parkway, the dealership will donate $25 to the Kosten Foundation as part of its Roadshow Gives Back promotion. If 100 test drives are made, Roadshow BMW will double the donation up to a maximum of $6,000.
“We are honored to have been selected by Roadshow BMW to participate in this wonderful promotion, “said Alan Kosten, Chairman of the Herb Kosten Pancreatic Cancer Charitable Fund. “It is encouraging to have the support of great community partners like Roadshow BMW who recognize the importance and impact of making a difference in the lives of our neighbors as we strive to find a cure for pancreatic cancer,”
Money raised from the Roadshow Gives Back promotion and other Kosten Foundation events helps fund pancreatic cancer research. The Memphis-based Kosten Foundation organization has raised close to $2,000,000 for pancreatic cancer research and assists with programs such as the Kosten Foundation’s Pancreatic Cancer Support Group, which meets the second Saturday of every month at the Cordova Public Library.

About the Kosten Foundation:
The Kosten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research was founded in 2003 by the family of Herb Kosten after his death due to pancreatic cancer. Kosten’s family sought to improve community support, awareness, and funding for pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest known cancers. The organization has raised nearly $2,000,000 for pancreatic cancer research and hosts a very active monthly support group meeting for patients, their families, and anyone interested in learning more about pancreatic cancer. In 2004, in honor of Kosten’s love of tennis, the Memphis-based organization began hosting annual tennis tournaments to raise money to fight pancreatic cancer, and in 2011 the group held its first Kick It 5K run/walk. The annual signature event has grown to include more than 2,500 participants. Money raised from the Kick It 5K and other Kosten Foundation events helps fund pancreatic cancer research and support fellowship training for future pancreatic cancer surgeons. In addition, the Foundation presents a yearly symposium headlined by nationally recognized leaders in the field of pancreatic cancer.
