First, we would like to send out a big “Thank-You” to everyone who came out this past Saturday to the Williston Central School and took part in Ford’s Drive One 4UR School Fundraiser. You helped us raise $2480! We had over 120 different families stop by for a test drive, while the event was staffed by 20+ volunteers from Williston F.A.P and 10+ employees from Heritage Ford.
We had quite a steady stream of drivers from 8am right up until 4pm when we began to break down the event, allowing us to fit in 124 test drives. Around 10am, Rusty Dewees stopped by and stood out by the road, rounding up more people to test drive a Ford. To see more photos, we have posted an album of from the event on our Facebook, here.
This truly was a great community event and we couldn’t be happier with the results. With $2480 raised, the Williston F.A.P can purchase materials that the budget doesn’t allow. Again, thank you to all of our customers and community members who came out and test drove a car for this event, we couldn’t have done it without you!
Calling all car enthusiasts!
This Saturday, May 19th, Heritage Ford of South Burlington is co-hosting a Ford Drive One 4 UR School fundraiser in conjunction with Williston Families as Partners. Heritage Ford will be providing vehicles to test drive from 9am to 4pm, and for each test drive Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the school – up to $6,000 – to support clubs, sports and other school activities. The Williston F.A.P. will also be hosting a car wash, so drop off your car and test drive a new 2012 Ford to help raise money for a good cause. And if that was not enough, each participating household will be entered into a drawing to win a new 2013 Ford Escape! Drivers must be 18 years of age or older and hold a valid driver’s license.
This is the first time Drive One 4 UR School has held a fundraiser in Vermont and we want to make it the most successful event yet. To date, no event across the country has raised the full $6,000 and we hope you will help us and the Williston F.A.P. become the first to do so. Come out on Saturday and get your car washed, take a test drive in a brand new car and help Heritage Ford raise money for a great cause.
