Placeholder Image

Across the U.S. arts, music and sports programs are being cut annually due to growing budgetary constraints and lack of funding. Today’s youth are missing out on extremely valuable opportunities to expand their knowledge and diversify their interests, as well as the chance to have fun! 

Pioneer Ford Sales wants to keep these opportunities available for students at Platteville High School. Pioneer Ford is bringing Ford Motor Co.’s Drive 4 Ur School program to the Platteville community to raise up to $6,000 for Platteville High School. 

For every person who takes the wheel and test-drives a new Ford vehicle at the Platteville High School parking lot on Wednesday, Nov. 11 from 3 to 7 p.m., Pioneer Ford and Ford Motor Co. will donate $20 to PHS. The funds will go toward the many sports and music programs at PHS.

“We know funding for school programs is hard to come by, and we want to do our part to help make sure these programs remain available,” said Tim Boldt, owner of Pioneer Ford Sales. “We are excited to raise money for the PHS Music Programs and Sports Programs.”

The event will feature several vehicles from Ford’s line-up. “Whether you are looking to test out our fuel efficiency vehicles like the Ford Fusion or Focus, or are more interested in the Ford Escape, Explorers or Ford F-150s we will put you behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle,” said Boldt.  

Participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver’s license. There is a limit of one test-drive per household. All test drives will last approximately five to 10 minutes. There will be free goodie bags for the first 200 drivers.

Since the start of Ford’s Drive 4 UR School program in 2007, more than $25 million in donations has been generated for high schools nationwide.
