CORDELE — 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!  Sunbelt Ford of Cordele wants to keep these opportunities available for our area students.

Sunbelt Ford of Cordele is bringing Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR School program to the community in an effort to raise up to $6,000 for Crisp County & Wilcox County FFA. For every person who takes the wheel and test-drives a new Ford vehicle at Sunbelt Ford of Cordele on September 17, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the Crisp/Wilcox County FFA.

“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 Richard Grogg, General Manager at Sunbelt Ford of Cordele. “We’re excited to raise money for the Future Farmers of America Programs!”

The event, which will be held from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM, will feature many vehicles from Ford’s impressive line-up. “Whether you are looking to test out our fuel efficiency vehicles, like the Focus, or want to try out technology features like Active Park Assist in the escape, we will be able to put you behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle,” said Grogg. Dealership staff on site will be able to assist with all Ford vehicles and provide additional information about each vehicle available for test-drive.

To date, Ford dealerships across the United States have helped raised more than $30 million for local schools and non-profits thanks to their hard work and partnership with the Drive 4 UR School and Drive 4 UR Community programs.

To participate in this exciting event and get behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle, please visit Sunbelt Ford of Cordele, 2511 East 16th Avenue, Cordele, Ga between 9:00 AM and 4:30 PM on September 17, 2016.

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.
