ADESA, a business unit of global automotive remarketer, KAR Auction Services, Inc. (NYSE: KAR), announces its ADESA auctions and EMKAY, a privately owned fleet management company, together raised $267,000 over a six-year fundraising partnership in support of JDRF. JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.
In 2017 alone, a nine-month JDRF fundraising campaign between the two companies raised $56,960 for JDRF. During March 1 to November 30, 2017, EMKAY and ADESA each made matching donations generated across 20 participating ADESA auction locations.
“More than 1 million Americans are living with type 1 diabetes — potentially impacting some of our employees, customers and their family members,” said Paul Lips, chief operating officer. “By collaborating with EMKAY to support JDRF and with the support of generous customers and employees, we are doing our part through our annual fundraising efforts to bring awareness to the disease and help fund diabetes research.”
JDRF’s research mission is to discover, develop and deliver advances that cure, better treat and prevent type 1 (T1D) diabetes. It is the largest charitable supporter of T1D research. For more information, visit jdrf.org.
