Car for a Cure - June 1, 2020

Each year, the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi teams up with Patty Peck Honda of Ridgeland to "put the brakes on diabetes" with the “Car for a Cure” Giveaway! Enter here for your chance to win a 2020 Honda Civic LX Sedan!

For three decades, Patty Peck Honda has generously donated a Honda to the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi.  Proceeds from the “Car for a Cure” ticket sales benefit the children’s programs of the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi, including Camp Kandu, Mississippi’s only camp for children with diabetes and their families. Camp Kandu is free for children with diabetes, which is only made possible by donors like YOU!

“It’s been very rewarding,” Patty Christie said. “The most fun part is giving the car away, because it’s always someone who really needs a car that wins, and that’s a really good feeling.”

“What makes it even better is knowing that all of the proceeds say in Mississippi – the money supports the DFM’s school programs and patients throughout the state who have diabetes,” Jeff Christie said. “It just adds a personal touch,” he said. “I like that every dollar stays in our state to help Mississippians with diabetes and to raise awareness. At the DFM, everyone has the best interests of the patients in mind. Everyone truly cares about the people they help.”

This year, we are excited to announce that we will be giving away a 2020 Honda Civic LX! The 2020 Honda Civic LX offers comfortable seating for five with leading edge technology, including standard Honda Sensing safety and a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines. The Civic sedan is equipped with a 158-horsepower, 4-cylinder engine designed to give you up to 38 mpg! For full details on the 2020 Honda Civic, please click here!

The 2020 Car for a Cure drawing will be broadcast on Facebook live on June 1, 2020, but the winner need not be 'present' to win!
