BVHS campaign hopes to raise $6,000 for students

MANLIUS — Fisch Motors is bringing Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR School program to the Bureau Valley High School community in an effort to raise up to $6,000 for the high school.

For every person who takes the wheel and test-drives a new Ford vehicle at BVHS on Friday, Ford Motor Co. will donate $20 to BVHS’ Renaissance Program. The funds will go toward student incentives and rewards.

“We know funding for school programs is hard to come by, and we want to do our part to help make sure these programs remain available,” said Laura Reuter, sales manager at Fisch Motors. “We’re excited to raise money for the Renaissance Program.”

The event, which will be held from 3 to 8 p.m., will feature many vehicles from Ford’s line-up. Dealership staff on site will be able to assist with all Ford vehicles and provide additional information about each vehicle available for test-drive.

Since the start of Ford’s Drive 4 UR School program in 2007, more than $16 million in donations have been generated for high schools nationwide.

To participate in this event and get behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle, visit Bureau Valley High School between 3 and 8 p.m. Friday. The event will be held in conjunction with the school’s “Meet the Storm” night.

Participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver’s license. There is a limit of one test-drive per household. All test-drives will last approximately 7-10 minutes.
