AutoNation Cure Bowl Partners

The AutoNation Cure Bowl is more than a game. It’s a celebration of the women who are living with breast cancer today and those who will face it tomorrow.  The AutoNation Cure Bowl is an NCAA college football bowl game played each December at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. The game is nationally televised on CBS Sports Network and features teams from the American Athletic Conference and the Sun Belt Conference. Funds raised from the AutoNation Cure Bowl directly benefit the nation’s highest rated breast cancer organization, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, whose mission is committed to exclusively funding cancer research. The AutoNation Cure Bowl launched in 2015 as the nation’s 40th collegiate football bowl game. The bowl is organized by The Orlando Sports Foundation, Inc.

AutoNation-Logo-FC-300x80AutoNation concentrates its vast community outreach and charitable involvement on cancer related projects. Through its Drive Pink Initiative, AutoNation has raised more than $11 million to help drive out cancer, create awareness and support critical research. In 2016, Forbes Magazine honored AutoNation as one of 100 companies listed on the “Just 100- America’s Best Corporate Citizens.” With over 26,000 associates from coast-to coast, AutoNation is America’s largest automotive retailer.

Now in its third year, AutoNation is proud to be the title sponsor of the 2017 AutoNation Cure Bowl, a partnership with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the Orlando Sports Foundation that combines the passions of college football with the importance of supporting breast cancer research.


Mike Jackson, CEO


Funds raised from the AutoNation Cure Bowl directly benefit the nation’s highest rated breast cancer organization, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, whose mission is committed to exclusively funding cancer research.  By investing in research, we all have the power to transform this diagnosis and save lives.  Founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, BCRF-funded investigators have been deeply involved in every major breakthrough in breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. This year, BCRF has awarded $59.5 million to support the work of more than 275 scientists at leading medical and academic institutions across 15 countries, making BCRF the largest private funder of breast cancer research worldwide. BCRF is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the U.S.—the only one with an “A+” from CharityWatch and Charity Navigator’s highest rating of four stars. Every dollar makes a difference. We are all part of the cure.  The end of breast cancer begins with you.
