Lake City Ford Drive4UR School Saturday at LCSS

Lake City Ford’s Drive4UR School event this Saturday, May 30 takes place at the LCSS Williams Lake Campus.

If you have a favourite program at Lake City Secondary School that you would like to support, all you have to do this Saturday is test drive a Ford vehicle and $20 will be donated to that particular cause.

It’s all part of Lake City Ford’s Drive4UR School event this Saturday, May 30 taking place at the LCSS Williams Lake Campus.

The goal this year is to raise the maximum of $6,000 that Ford Canada will donate under the program for each participating school.

“We are hoping to raise $6,000, so all we need to do that is to have 300 test drivers,” says LCSS principal Gregg Gaylord.

He says one person from a family is permitted to test drive one of the Ford vehicles that will be based in the Williams Lake Campus bus pull out in front of the school on  Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Parking is available in the school parking lot.

He says people who register and take a test drive can also designate where they want their $20 donation to go at the school be it the rugby, soccer or other sports programs or programs such as band, special needs, counselling, alternate program, etc.

“We are hoping parents and students will come out and support their favourite teams or programs.” Gaylord says.

Lake City Ford owner David Wong encourages people to support Ford Canada’s Drive4UR School program.

“It’s an event we feel very strongly about,” Wong says. “Every dollar raised goes directly to the school for the kids.”

A variety of Ford vehicles will be available to test drive including the Ford Focus, Fusion, Taurus, Escape, Edge, Explorer and the F150 and F350 trucks as well as the new Ford passenger van.

Free hot dogs, donuts, hot chocolate and coffee will be available on site.

Drive4UR School takes place this Saturday, May 30 at the Lake City Secondary School Williams Lake Campus on Carson Drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This will be the third time Lake City Ford has held a Drive4UR School event to raise funds for students.
