Since the program’s inception in 2007, Drive One 4 UR School has offered 275,000 test-drives at more than 1,500 events to generate over $5 million in donations for high schools nationwide. The money raised during the Drive One 4 UR School program has helped ensure that extracurricular actives like sports and music programs continue in local communities.
“We are thrilled that so many people from the local community turned out to support Mater Dei Catholic High School, and I’ve never been more proud to be a Ford dealer. Participants had the chance to take a fun, casual drive in one of our vehicles, while lending our students and community a much-needed helping hand,” said Clyde Dorries, dealer principal at Breese Motor Sales.
“Finding creative ways to fund-raise is imperative,”
Breese Motor Sales has been a part of the Breese community since 1913. This year marked Breese Motor Sales hosted their second Drive One 4 UR School event, previously raising $6,000 for Central High School in 2010.
