Brian Bemis World Auto helped to raise $1,840 for the Kaneland High School football team with the Ram Truck brand’s Ram Gridiron Challenge program.  The fundraising event was held during a varsity football game on Oct. 11.

“The Ram Truck brand and high school football are intricately linked through their connection to the tough, powerful and rugged American lifestyle,” Phillip Scroggin, manager of the Midwest Business Center, said in a news release. “Through the Ram Gridiron Challenge, we are able to give back to football organizations that provide students with a safe and engaging outlet outside of academics.”

Participants earned a $20 contribution to the Kaneland High School football team by taking a brief test drive in a Ram truck. Brian Bemis World Auto supplied the vehicles, and volunteers from the dealership were on hand to assist in the fundraising drives.

The Ram Gridiron Challenge was introduced at the start of this year’s football season. Learn more about the Ram Truck brand at www.ramtrucks.com.
