GIVING BACK DRIVE SMART FOR YOUR Test Drives SCHOOL Mean Big Bucks for Local Schools by Stephanie Lesser Ford Motor Company has created a fun new way for you to help support your local schools. It's called the Drive Smart For Your School program. Lincoln deal¬ erships across the nation are partnering with local high schools to host test-drive fundraising events that support their sports and extracurricular activi¬ ties. For each person who takes a test drive on the day of the event, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the participating school, up to $6,000 per event. Since 2011, the program has donated more than $450,000 to high schools nationwide. On May 12, Doral Lincoln partnered with Our Lady of Lourdes Academy and raised a handsome $2,560 for the school's athletic department. Founded in 1963, Our Lady of Lourdes Academy is an all-girl Catholic school in Miami with a reputation for athletic excel- lence. The school has won the Miami Herald Girls Major Sports trophy for nine consecutive years and hopes to continue this achievement. The Drive Smart For Your School program helps local schools like this one keep valuable sports and other enriching activi- ties available to students. But, the program can only succeed with your participation. Last year, Doral Lincoln had enough event partici¬ pants to meet the $6,000 maximum and they would like to meet that number again next year. That's where you come in. The Drive Smart for Your School program is your opportunity to help support your lo¬ cal schools, simply by taking a test drive. Just attend an event and get behind the wheel. A few minutes of your time can do a lot of good. Doral Lincoln, owned by Luis and Lili Somoano, is located at 9000 N.W. 12 St. Doral, Fl 33172. To learn more about upcoming events, contact Doral Lincoln at 786.845.0900.
