Founded in 1916, GMADA is comprised of more than 50 new car dealerships in the Greater Memphis area and has a rich history of economic growth and community partnership. This year, they are producing Memphis’ only international Auto Show September 21-23. Funds raised by Susan G. Komen Memphis-Mid-South are dedicated to providing local breast cancer screenings, education, support and treatment programs for area women and men who are either uninsured or underserved.

“We are honored to support Susan G. Komen and the great work they do in our community,” current GMADA President Kent Ritchey said.

Since 1993, Komen Memphis-Mid-South has funded over $10 million in local grants to community health programs and directed over $2.6 million to breast cancer research at the national level. 75% of all funds raised remain in Memphis and the Mid-South and the remaining 25% earned is dedicated to breast cancer research.

Members of GMADA employ over 3,000 people and the participating dealerships sell over $3 Billion in automobiles and services annually. “We are extremely proud that car and truck sales are the largest single source of sales tax revenue to the state of Tennessee and partnering with a non-profit that is also a leader in their field is a perfect way to celebrate our 102nd anniversary. We are all looking forward to Going Pink!” Ritchey added.
