|Exciting test-drive fundraising event will generate much-needed money for technology, helping students in the local community.
BRADENTON, FL- Across the United States, there are vital educational programs and technology that today’s youth must experience in order to prepare them for their college and future careers. Consider for a moment the use of the computer chip in today’s products as well as the use of mobile and tablet devices in industries across the United States. Recently, the U.S. Department of Commerce ranked 55 industries by their level of technology use. Education was ranked 55th, the lowest, below coal mining.
Bradenton Christian School launched a fundraising campaign based on a vision to create a sustainable technology program that strengthens teaching and advances our school’s mission – to prepare the hearts and minds of God’s children.
AutoNation Ford wants to build these opportunities for our students at Bradenton Christian School and is bringing Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR School program to our community in an effort to raise up to $6,000. For every person who test-drives a new Ford vehicle at Bradenton Christian School on May 3, AutonNation Ford and Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to Bradenton Christian School. The funds will go toward our Technology Fundraising Campaign.
“We know funding for school programs is hard to come by, and we want to do our part to help,” said Troy Brown, General Manager at AutoNation Ford. “We’re excited to raise money for Bradenton Christian School. The event, which will be held from 9:00AM to 2:00PM, will feature many vehicles from Ford’s impressive line-up. “Whether you are looking to test out our fuel efficiency vehicles, like the Fusion or Focus, or are more interested in an electric vehicle, like the C-MAX, we will be able to put you behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle,” said Brown.
Since the start of Ford’s Drive 4 UR School program in 2007, more than $20 million in donations have been generated for high schools nationwide. To participate in this exciting event and get behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle, please visit Bradenton Christian School between 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM on May 3, 2014.
Participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver’s license. There is a limit of one test-drive per household. All test-drives will last approximately 7-10 minutes.
