Drive 4 UR School Event To Be Hosted By Sunbelt Ford For Crisp Academy

Published 2:51 pm Wednesday, March 8, 2017

An exciting test-drive fundraising event will be held to generate much-needed money for Crisp Academy, helping students in the local community.  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 and is once again bringing Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR School program to the community in an effort to raise up to $8,000 for Crisp Academy.  For every person who takes the wheel and test-drives a new Ford vehicle at Sunbelt Ford of Cordele on March 11, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the Crisp Academy. They can also drive the NEW 2017 Ford Focus and Ford will donate an additional $10 to Crisp Academy!

“We know funding for school programs are 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 Crisp Academy!”

The event, which will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., will feature many vehicles from Ford’s impressive line-up.  “Whether you are looking to test out our fuel efficiency vehicles, like the Fiesta, or want to try out new technology features 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.
