This Saturday – test drives raise money for DCHS Band

TAKE THE WHEEL WITH FORD: JOHN BLEAKLEY FORD AND THE DOUGLAS COUNTY COMMUNITY TO RAISE AS MUCH AS $8,000 FOR THE DOUGLAS COUNTY BAND BOOSTERS.

September 15th Test-drive fundraising event will generate much-needed money for Douglas County High School helping students in the local community.

Douglasville, GA –Across the United States, there are vital arts, music and sports programs that are being cut annually due to growing budgetary constraints and lack of funding. Today’s youth are missing out on extremely valuable opportunities to expand their knowledge and diversify their interests, as well as the chance to have a little fun! John Bleakley Ford wants to keep these opportunities available for our local students at Douglas County High School.

John Bleakley Ford is bringing Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR School program to the Douglas County community in an effort to raise up to $8,000 for Douglas County High School. For every person who takes the wheel and test-drives a new Ford vehicle at Douglas County High School on Saturday, September 15, 2012, John Bleakley Ford and Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the Douglas County High School Marching Band. The funds will be used to purchase new band instruments and uniforms.

“We know funding for school programs is hard to come by, and we want to do our part to help make sure these programs remain available,” said Stephanie Bleakley, Organizer at John Bleakley Ford. “We’re excited to raise money for the Douglas County High School Band Boosters.”

The event, which will be held from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, will feature many vehicles from Ford’s line-up. “Whether you are looking to test out our larger vehicles, like the Explorer or F-150, or are more interested in a smaller sedan, like the Focus, we will be able to put you behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle,” said Mrs. Bleakley. Dealership staff on site will be able to assist with all Ford vehicles and provide additional information about each vehicle available for test-drive.

Since the start of Ford’s Drive 4 UR School program in 2007, more than $11 million in donations have been generated for high schools nationwide. To participate in this event and get behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle, please visit Douglas County High School between 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM on Saturday, September 15, 2012.

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-drive will last approximately 7-10 minutes.
