LACONIA — Irwin Automotive put on Ford's Drive One 4 UR School event on September 25. The concept was simple, Irwin Ford encouraged all members of the community to come out and test drive a new Ford at Laconia High school and for every test drive Ford motor company donated $20 to Laconia High School Senior Class. As a result Irwin Ford Lincoln was able to raise $1,300 for the senior class.
"We’re thrilled to be able to support the Senior Class with Drive One 4 UR School," said Chris Irwin, Vice President of Irwin Automotive. "We’d like to wish them the best of luck and glad to help in any way we can."
