Published DateLACONIA — Irwin Ford is bringing Ford Motor Company's Drive 4 UR School program to the Laconia community in an effort to raise up to $6,000 for Laconia High School.
For every person who takes the wheel and test-drives a new Ford vehicle Thursday, May 23 at Laconia High School from 3-7 p.m., Irwin Ford and Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to Laconia High School to help contribute to the new high school athletic field.
"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 Chris Irwin, vice president of the Irwin Automotive Group. "We're excited to raise money for a new athletic field for the students of Laconia High School."
The event will feature many vehicles from Ford's line-up. "Whether you are looking to test out our fuel efficiency vehicles, like the Fusion or Focus, or are more interested in an electric vehicle, like the C-MAX, we will be able to put you behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle," said Irwin. The Irwin Ford staff will be on site and available to assist with all Ford vehicles and provide additional information about each vehicle available for test-drive.
Since the start of Ford's Drive 4 UR School program in 2007, more than $16 million in donations have been generated for high schools nationwide.
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.
