DeKalb Music Boosters and Brad Manning Ford are sponsoring a “Drive 4 UR School” fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. April 12.
They are seeking licensed drivers age 18 and older to come to DeKalb High School, test-drive a new Ford vehicle, and complete a brief survey. Test drives will last approximately 7 to 10 minutes. Drivers do not need to be interested in purchasing a new car at this time.
For every qualified driver (limit one per household) who completes the test drive, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to DeKalb Music Boosters, which supports band, choir and orchestra activities at the high school and middle schools in DeKalb School District 428.
In 2012, Music Boosters helped fund student travel to competitions and events such as the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, the ICHSA A Cappella Championships and the Essentially Ellington Jazz Competition, both in New York City, and the Six Flags Music in the Parks events. The group also provides scholarships for students to further their music studies.
