Ford Test-Drive Event Raises Funds for Adams H.S.

Patrick Scoggin, president and owner of Huntington Ford in Rochester Hills presented a check for $3,260 to Rochester Adams High School for the recently completed Drive One 4 UR School event. This widely popular test-dive program allowed Ford Motor Company and Huntington Ford to partner with Adams High School and local community members to “get behind the wheel” of the new Ford products and raise funds for the school by test-driving an eligible Ford vehicle.  Over 160 people participated in the event, and for each driver from a unique household, Ford Motor Company and Huntington Ford donated $20 to the school.

Participants in the check ceremony and organizers of the event included (standing from left to right): Chuck May, Assistant Principal, Kathleen Ford, Activities Director, Jim Ferden, Band Director, Patrick Scoggin, Huntington Ford, the Highlander mascot, Denise Armstrong, PTSA Board Member, Jason Rapp, Athletic Director, and Deb Cooper, Assistant Principal.

“This is a tremendous program that supports our local school and community and, at the same time, allows people to drive our exciting new products.” Scoggin said.

Since the start of the program in 2007, Ford’s Drive One 4 UR School events have raised more than $3.3 million for over 700 high schools across the country and has enabled more than 173,000 people to test drive the new Ford vehicles. The funds raised during the Drive One 4 UR School program have helped fund extracurricular activities like sports and band programs, helping to ensure that these programs continue in the local communities.
