The Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi is the state’s premier nonprofit health organization working to prevent diabetes and associated complications as well as working to improve the lives of every child, adult, and every family touched by type 1 or type 2 diabetes. This is accomplished through education, support, advocacy, medical assistance and research. Every dollar the organization raises stays in Mississippi. “We are honored to support the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi,” stated Bill Franks, Event Chairman of the Mississippi Corvette Club, Inc. This event has been very successful in the past, and our plan is to bring even more excitement in 2015. Show attendees will have an entertaining day out of the July heat.
The event is co-sponsored by the Jackson Convention Complex and the Mississippi Corvette Club, Inc. as well as other area businesses. Many donors and volunteers contribute to the success of this event. “This event would not be possible without the support of all these generous people,” Franks stated. “We invite everyone to come and join us on Saturday, July the 11th.”
