Demonstrating it’s creative approach to sales and marketing as well as giving back to the local community, G. Stone Motors, Inc., of Middlebury is once again inviting area consumers an opportunity to test drive a new Ford vehicle and help a local school—this time, it’s Vergennes Union High School.
Ford Motor Co. and G. Stone’s “Drive One 4 UR School” program will be held Saturday, Sept. 10, 9 a.m.-2 p.m., at VUHS.
According to Travis Romano, general manager, “Each test drive will earn $20 donated by Ford and G. Stoen to the VUHS athletic program. We will be bringing about 10-15 vehicles to the high school for the test drive event.”
G. Stone Motors hopes to help out in the community’s effort to raise up to $6,000 for the school.
“We know how important extracurricular activities are to our high school students, and as part of this community, we want to help,” said Todd Stone, vice president of G. Stone Motors “This is why we’re so excited to raise money for Vergennes Union High School, meanwhile introducing parents, teenagers and other drivers to our high-quality lineup and innovative safety technologies.”
The event will feature the Ford Explorer, Focus, Fusion, Edge, Ranger, F-150, F-250, or other available models.
Since the start of Ford’s Drive One 4 UR School program in 2007, more than 275,000 test-drives at more than 1,500 events have generated over $5 million in donations for high schools nationwide.
