Forty eight test drives and a car wash by Glenvar High School students added up to success for the fundraiser, organized by Berglund Ford on East Main in Salem.
We have a photo gallery of 11 photos from the event.
Here’s the complete press release:
The June 21st Cruise 4 UR School fundraiser sponsored by Ford and Berglund Ford here in Salem raised $1, 251 for Glenvar High School. The one-day event invited people to test drive an assortment of 2008 Ford products and for every individual who participated, Ford and Berglund Ford donated $20 to Glenvar High School.
“I want to thank the community for making this event a huge success,” said Robbie Brookshier of Berglund Ford. “This was a great way to show Berglund Ford’s support for our community’s youth.”
“The money raised will go a long way in helping us take care of our students,” said Kevin Clifford, Football Coach of Glenvar High School.
“I want to thank Berglund Ford for their generous support.” By participating in this event, Glenvar High School has been entered into a sales competition. There will be an additional 1st, 2nd and 3rd place donation ($15,000, $10,000 and $5,000) made to those high schools that generate the most new Ford Division sales!
Across the country, hundreds of Ford dealers are partnering with local high schools to host Cruise 4 UR School events, just like they did here. Ford is contributing up to $6,000—the equivalent of 300 test drives—to every participating school, each of which can use the funds to support various programs and activities as they see fit.
