Williams Lake Secondary students are teaming up with Lake City Ford this Saturday to make some big bucks for kids, says teacher and event coordinator Mike Levitt.

He says Ford is putting up $20 for every test drive the students can organize for the big event called Drive One 4UR School happening this Saturday, May 7 at WLSS.

“Ford will be bringing a fleet of shiny new trucks and cars to WL and is offering us the potential to make $6,000,” says Levitt. “That’s 300 test drives.”

The Ford event has been run very successfully over the past couple years in a variety of communities. WLSS  is planning a multitude of events to showcase their day.

“I’m very proud to be involved in an event that represents the rich and diverse culture of our school,” says co-coordinator Niki Sidell. “The Ford event, although a fundraiser, is a way for us to showcase a little bit of what WLSS is about: the sports teams, music programs and school clubs. 

“There will be a barbecue, a car wash, silent auction, soccer tournament, Dry Grad truck raffle, Road Sense display, day care and musical performances on the day. Come on out and test drive a Ford!”

Lake City Ford is supplying posters, balloons, and lots of goodies to promote the day.

“All of us at Lake City Ford are proud to be part of the Drive One 4 UR School fundraiser,” says Dave Polack, manager of Lake City Ford.  “We applaud Ford Canada and their support of schools in our community.  I think it is a great opportunity for everyone in Williams Lake to come by and test drive a new Ford.”
