DU QUOIN -- The District #300 Educational Foundation and Vogler Ford dealership of Carbondale will be teaming up to conduct an exciting test drive fundraising event on Saturday, Sept. 22, at Du Quoin High School.
Vogler Ford has worked for many years in partnership with various school and community entities to promote programs that benefit the youth of Du Quoin.
Tim Hirsch, a Du Quoin resident and sales manager at Vogler Ford, adds, "We're excited to raise money for the District #300 Educational Foundation that will directly benefit students in our community.
Whether you are looking to test drive our 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."
Dealership staff on site will be able to assist and provide additional information regarding any of the Ford vehicles available for a test drive. To date, Ford dealerships across the United States have helped raise more than $35 million for local schools and nonprofits, thanks to their hard work and working with the Drive 4 UR School and Drive 4 UR Community programs.
To participate in this event and test drive a Ford vehicle, please come to Du Quoin High School between 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Sept. 22.
For every test drive, $20 will be donated to the District #300 Educational Foundation to support the Foundation's scholarship and classroom grant programs.
As an added benefit, additional funds will be provided to the Foundation through those who test drive a vehicle and then also test drive a Ford Fusion.
Snacks and refreshments will be available to those who participate throughout the day.
The District #300 Educational Foundation appreciates the opportunity to partner with Vogler Ford to raise funds for programs that directly benefit District #300 students. As always, the Foundation appreciates the overwhelming community support it receives on an annual basis and looks forward to hosting this worthwhile fundraising event for our students.
