Ford Motor Company and Lutesville Motor Company are partnering to help raise money in support of Woodland High School and Leopold High School as part of Ford's Drive One 4 UR School program. Community members will have the opportunity to raise up to $6,000 for Woodland Booster Club and the Leopold School District Foundation by test driving a Ford vehicle at Lutesville Motor Company on August 28th from 9am to 2pm.

For every person who test drives a 2011 Taurus, Fusion Hybrid or Sport, Fiesta, Mustang, or other Ford vehicle, Lutesville Motor Company will donate $20 to Woodland Booster Club or the Leopold School District Foundation.

"We're excited to help raise money for Woodland Booster Club and Leopold School District Foundation and at the same time introduce parents, teenagers and other drivers to our high quality lineup and innovative safety technologies," said Mitzi Rhodes, of Lutesville Motor Company. "We know it is important that students continue to have opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities, and that's why over the past couple years it has been a privilege to help support these important programs."

Since the start of Ford's Drive One 4 UR School program in 2007, over 125,000 people have helped raise more than $2.6 million for close to 700 high schools across the country. Locally, Lutesville Motor Company has participated in Ford's Drive One 4 UR School program for 2 years and raised over $19,260 for Woodland High School and Leopold High School.

In addition to raising much-needed revenue for high school extracurricular activities, Ford Motor Company's Drive One 4 UR School program also gives participants the chance to take a look at Ford and Lincoln Mercury's exciting new cars and leading safety technologies, including:

* MyKey™, a system that allows parents to limit a vehicle's top speed and audio volume to encourage safe driving behavior in teens;

* SYNC®, the fully integrated, in-vehicle voice-activated communications and entertainment system with 911 AssistTM, Vehicle Health Report and GPS-based features including business search and call completion;

To participate, please visit Lutesville Motor Company on August 28th from 9am-2pm.

Participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver's license. There is a limit of one test drive per household.

The folks at Lutesville Motor have always been very supportive of the community. This is just another example. I hope they have a standing line of people waiting to test drive a car. And maybe they'll sell a car or two. They're also an excellent car dealership.
