BOURBONNAIS, IL – Ford’s Drive 4UR School and Drive 4UR Community events has hit a huge milestone. The events, held by local Ford dealerships, benefit High Schools as well as non-profit organizations. Court Street Ford has partnered with Kankakee High School as well as Clifton Central High School this year alone and has participated since 2009 having put together 9 events in total. Ford announced today that the “Drive 4UR” events has officially completed 1 million test drives equating to $20 million raised!
For each Drive 4 UR School and Drive 4 UR Community event, Ford and Lincoln dealers work with a local high school or nonprofit organization to schedule a test-drive fundraiser. Dealers provide the cars to be test-driven, the high school or nonprofit organizes the event, and both work together to get the word out to their community. For every valid test drive completed, Ford donates $20 to the participating high school or nonprofit, up to $6,000.
“We congratulate the students, teachers, parents, dealers, nonprofits and communities who worked so hard through so many events to help raise and apply money where they need it,” said Tracy Magee, Ford experiential marketing manager. “Drive 4 UR School and Drive 4 UR Community were developed as a fun, engaging way to protect important educational programs and community services. Ford and its dealers are proud to continue offering both programs locally through more than 1,300 events annually.”
