Our founder, Donald J. Seelye, served our country as a member of the United States Marine Corps. Don was shot and wounded while courageously fighting for our freedom in the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II. While recovering at Walter Reed Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, Don received a purple heart and a personal visit from President Harry S. Truman, thanking him for his sacrifice. Donald J. Seelye passed away in 1997, but the discipline, commitment to others, and attention to detail learned while in the Marine Corps are still alive in our dealership today.
Starting with our founder, Donald J. Seelye, his sons Mike and Pat Seelye, and grandson Mickey, our pledge to being involved and giving back to our community has always been a priority. With the vision and leadership of Mike Seelye, this year marks the 20th year anniversary celebrating the Donald J. Seelye and Steven Little Tyler Memorial Golf Classic. Proceeds from this event are distributed to the American Cancer Society for continued research and financial assistance for those in need. Check out our golf events here!
In 2016 the employees of our company wanted to set a new record for funds raised in our annual United Way of Southwest Michigan Campaign. With the highest participation rate from our employees we had ever seen, we were able to surpass this lofty goal and set a new benchmark going forward. Some other organizations within the community we have partnered with, but are not limited to, include Big Brothers/Big Sisters, the Boys and Girls Club, Kalamazoo Gospel Mission, Kalamazoo Civic Theatre, and the Donald J. Seelye Athletic Center for student-athletes at Western Michigan University.
