Gresham Ford and Local Community to Raise as much as $6,000 for Sam Barlow and Centennial high schools
To date, Gresham Ford has raised nearly $8,000 for local high school students through Drive One 4 UR School.
The event, which will be held May 14th 2011, will feature the Ford Explorer, Focus, Fiesta, Edge, F-150, Mustang or other available models including the new eco-boost engine.
In addition to raising much-needed revenue for high school extracurricular activities, the program gives participants the chance to experience Ford’s exciting new vehicles and leading safety technologies, including:
• MyKey™, a system that allows parents to limit a vehicle’s top speed and audio volume to encourage safe driving behavior in teens;
• SYNC®, the fully integrated, in-vehicle voice-activated communications and entertainment system with 911 AssistTM, Vehicle Health Report and GPS-based features including business search and call completion;
• Blind Spot Information System (BLIS™) with Cross Traffic Alert, which uses radar to check the blind spot and helps notify the driver of approaching traffic when backing out of a parking spot; and,
• Active Parking Assist a technology that helps drivers position the vehicle for parallel parking and then steer it into a parking spot without touching the steering wheel.
To participate, please visit Gresham Ford, 1940 E. Powell Blvd. on Saturday, May 14.
Participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver’s license. There is a limit of one test-drive per household.
