Jim Hayes Inc. has partnered with the Harrisburg High School Band Boosters to offer Ford’s Drive One 4UR School Program in an effort to raise up to $6,000 in funds to benefit the HHS Band.
The event will take place on Aug. 23, 2013, at the office of Raymond James Financial Advisor Michael Tison, 37 S. Main St., Harrisburg, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
“Our community has been fortunate to have the support of a business leader like Jim Hayes, Inc.,” said band director Hannah Drake. “We are happy to partner with Ford for a program benefiting our school and our kids.”
The Drive One 4 UR School Program was developed as a fun, engaging way to help high schools raise money to support their sports programs and extracurricular activities. Ford and Lincoln dealerships partner with a local high school to conduct a test-drive fundraising event. For every valid test drive completed, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the participating high school, up to $6,000. To test drive a car, individuals must be 18 years or older and have a valid driver’s license. One driver per household may participate.
“We’ve always believed in our community and the best way to demonstrate that is to support it in every way we can, starting with kids,” said Jim Hayes, Inc. Vice President Jamie Hayes. Drive One 4UR School gives the community a chance to support their school donating just 15 minutes of their time.
Drive One 4UR School has had great success since its inception in 2007, with thousands of test drives and dollars generated for schools through the program.
