Drive $ UR School & Eat 4 A Cure

Gresham Ford hosts another Drive 4 UR School
Ford and its Dealers are aiming to raise $1 million dollars for high schools.  Gresham Ford is excited to do its part for local high schools and the first chance to participate is September 21, 2013.  Please Put it on your calendar!  The idea is simple, high schools work with their local Ford and Lincoln dealers to schedule a test drive fundraiser event.  The dealers have a selection of the latest Ford has to offer in Cars and Trucks this includes hybrids, electrics and the new Energis.  The schools promote the event to their students, parents, staff and supporters and then they just show up and take a no pressure rest drive and Ford Motor Company donates $20 to the school up to $6000 per event.  It is a clear win-win.  Ford puts its vehicles in front of potential customers, and high schools raise money for special projects - in this case of our local schools the money has gone to support both boys and girls sports programs and choir and drama programs.  Over the past five years nationally, schools have raised over $10 million through this program.

However, here in Gresham the local Gresham High Boosters Club is taking this to new heights by not only participating in the Drive Event but combining it with an "Eat 4 the Cure" Event.  So you are going to be able to test drive and then have a great meal prepared by local vendors that will benefit the Leukemia Lymphoma Society and there are more details to come-stay tuned!!!
