Bob Hurley Ford will aid the Skiatook High School band to get to the nation’s capitol!
Almost 60 bands members from Skiatook High School are getting ready to go on a trip of a lifetime and they need your help – and all you have to do is to test drive a car this Saturday!
The Skiatook Band Boosters and Bob Hurley Ford are teaming up to promote the Drive One 4UR Schools event from 8 am to 5 pm on Saturday, April 14 at the high school located at 1000 West Fourth in Skiatook.
To address the needs at a local level and empower communities to support and protect valued school programs, Ford Motor Company and its dealers partner with high schools across the United States to offer the Drive One 4 UR School program. This initiative has raised more than $10 million through nearly 3,000 events since its inception in 2007. The event provides up to $6,000 per school through test drives of Ford products. At the event, licensed drivers, limited to one per household, are shown new Ford vehicles and get a chance to take a test drive.
Tracey Overton, a member of the Skiatook High School Band Boosters, said the band promoters along with students and faculty have set a goal to get 300 test drives done during the day. Staff from Bob Hurley Ford will have more than a dozen different vehicles there so participants can choose which type of vehicle they’d like to test drive.
“Our community has been fortunate to have the support of a business leader like Bob Hurley Ford,” said Overton. “We are happy to partner with Ford for a program benefiting our school and our kids.”
“Our band has got the opportunity of a lifetime to go a band competition at the nation’s capitol this Memorial Day,” she added.
For every test drive taken by a qualified driver at the event, Ford and the dealership will donate money to the band.
Overton added, “We’ve got 59 students that we’re taking on two buses to the competition and we plan to visit the Gettysburg Memorial and other District of Columbia landmarks. The money will definitely help defray the cost of fuel for the trip.”
