Two Rivers Ford is bringing Ford Motor Company's Drive 4 UR Community program back to Wilson County on Saturday, May 2 in an effort to raise up to $6,000 for the Kiwanis Clubs of Mt. Juliet and Lebanon.
For every person who takes the wheel and test drives a new Ford vehicle at Two Rivers Ford on Saturday, the dealership and Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the local Kiwanis Clubs. The funds will go toward supporting the community involvement activities of both clubs.
"We know funding for community programs is hard to come by, and we want to do our part to help make sure these programs remain available," Two Rivers Ford General Manager Tommy Crockett said.
"We're excited to raise money to help children in our community become tomorrow's leaders and role models."
The event, which will be held from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., will feature many vehicles from Ford's line-up.
"Whether you are looking to test out our fuel efficiency vehicles, like the Fusion or Focus, or are more interested in an electric vehicle, like the C-MAX, we will be able to put you behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle," Crockett added. Dealership staff will be able to assist with all Ford vehicles and provide additional information about each vehicle for test drive. Participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver's license. There is a limit of one test drive per household, and all test drives will last approximately seven to 10 minutes.
Drive 4 UR Community is a very similar concept to Ford's successful Drive 4 UR School initiative, which has raised more than $20 million for schools since its inception in 2007.
