It was a hit last year, and officials at Big Country Ford expect it will be even more popular this year.
Big Country Ford is bringing Ford Motor Company’s “Drive 4 UR School” program to the Brownwood area in an effort to raise up to $6,000 for Project Graduation events for schools throughout Brown County. For every person who test-drives a Ford vehicle at the Brownwood Coliseum on Sept. 29, Big Country Ford and Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to Project Graduation. The funds will go toward graduation night celebrations at Brownwood, Early, Bangs, May and Zephyr high schools.
“We know how important extracurricular activities are to our high school students and as part of this community, we want to help,” said Thomas Scull, general manager at Big Country Ford. “This is why we’re excited to raise money for Project Graduation, meanwhile introducing parents, teenagers and other drivers to our high-quality lineup and innovative safety technologies.”
The event, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 29 at the Brownwood Coliseum parking lot, will feature the Ford Explorer, Focus, Edge, F150 Eco Boost, The 6.7L Power Stroke Diesel and other models.
“Last year Big Country Ford’s event raised over $5,000 for Project Graduation, and this year we hope to reach our goal of $6,000,” Scull said. “Each school will have booths set up to help their Project Graduation efforts, so we’re hoping everyone will join us in raising money for these schools.”
