Test drive a Ford to raise money for Surrey schools

SURREY – Hallmark Ford Sales Ltd. is bringing more Ford Motor Company of Canada Limited’s innovative Drive 4 UR School program events to Surrey in an effort to raise money for local students.

For every person who test drives a Ford vehicle at the events, Hallmark Ford Sales Ltd. and Ford of Canada will donate $20 to support local schools and dry grad programs.

Ford’s Drive 4 UR School and Drive 4 UR Community program is a unique program that allows local Ford dealers to partner with schools and organizations of their choice to host test drive fundraising events. The program allows the community to experience driving a Ford vehicle while giving back to the community.

“We want to thank everyone (who) came to our last three Drive 4 UR School events in March which raised a combined total of over $3,000 for North Delta Minor Hockey Association, North Surrey Secondary school and Clayton Heights Secondary school,” said Dan Warkentin, marketing and sales at Hallmark Ford Sales Ltd. “We want to continue the momentum at our upcoming events and as the weather warms up, we really encourage the community to join us at our Drive 4 UR School events to not only support local students, but also to experience Ford of Canada’s high-quality line-up and innovative safety technologies.”

Upcoming events include:. Saturday, April 12 at Guildford Park Secondary school, 10707-146 Avenue, Surrey, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.. Saturday, April 26 at Johnston Heights Secondary school, 16060-108 Avenue, Surrey, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.. Saturday, May 3 at Fraser Heights Secondary school, 15350-99 Avenue, Surrey, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver’s license.
