Bill Knight Ford's Drive for Your School

“We’re excited to raise money for Jenks Public Schools Foundation.” - Bill Knight

Jenks, OK (PRWEB) April 25, 2013

Across the United States, there are vital arts, music and sports programs that are being cut annually due to growing budgetary constraints and lack of funding. Today’s youth are missing out on extremely valuable opportunities to expand their knowledge and diversify their interests, as well as the chance to have a little fun. Bill Knight Ford wants to keep these opportunities available for our local students at Jenks Public Schools.

For the third year, Bill Knight Ford is bringing Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR School program to the Jenks community in an effort to raise up to $6,000 for Jenks Public Schools Foundation. For every person who takes the wheel and test-drives a new Ford vehicle at Jenks High School parking lot at the corner of 1st and B streets on Saturday, April 27th, Bill Knight Ford and Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to Jenks Public Schools Foundation. Drivers will be entered to win an Apple IPad Mini with Wi-Fi.

“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 Bill Knight, owner of Bill Knight Ford. “We’re excited to raise money for Jenks Public Schools Foundation.”

The event, which will be held from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm, will feature many vehicles from Ford’s impressive line-up. “Whether you are looking to test out our fuel efficiency vehicles, like the Focus, Fusion or the C-Max Hybrid, or are more interested in an F-150 or Mustang, we will be able to put you behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle,” said Knight. 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 exciting event and get behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle, please visit Jenks High School parking lot at 1st and B streets between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm on Saturday, April 27th.

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-drive will last approximately 7-10 minutes.
