Money raised for good cause at Fines
By Bill Rea
Not only was it for a good cause, but it also gave people the chance to drive some really nice cars that might be a bit above their lifestyles.
That was the deal Saturday as Fines Ford Lincoln in Bolton held another of their Drive4WE events in support of Allan Drive Middle School in Bolton.
“The good news is anyone who does a test drive, Ford donates $20 to Allan Drive School,” commented Fines Ford General Manager Carlos Martins.
It was part of Ford’s Drive 4UR Community program. From coast to coast, between May 7 and 13, Ford of Canada was partnering with schools across the country and WE charities to help make a difference to communities on both a local and global scale.
Since 2010, Ford has raised $8 million for worthy causes and school partners.
Allan Drive teacher Sean Hennessy said the money will be going toward the school’s Me to We program, a charitable organization that encourages young people to be more involved in their community. They are active with projects in the community, like organizing food drives for Caledon Community Services, as well as supporting education programs overseas.
Hennessy said he was on hand at Saturday’s event to help out, but that didn’t mean he wasn’t planning to test drive a car himself.
“After 2:15, it’s my turn to go out,” he said.
