Chrysler Cars 4 Classrooms fundraiser is Thursday
Ron Sayer’s Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram will host a Chrysler Cars 4 Classrooms fundraiser for Fairview Elementary School students from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday at 490 Northgate Mile.
During the event, the school’s supporters will have the opportunity to earn money for its students, by taking a brief test drive in the Chrysler Pacifica or Pacifica Hybrid. Any licensed driver, age 18 or older, may drive and earn on the school’s behalf, a Chrysler Cars 4 Classrooms news release said.
For each test drive taken during the fundraising event, Chrysler will donate $10 to Fairview Elementary School. As an added incentive, the Chrysler brand also will offer Fairview Elementary a chance to earn additional funding by doubling its contribution and donating $20 per test drive once the school reaches a certain threshold of drives, the release said.
Additionally, all test drive participants be entered for a chance to win the 2019 Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Sweepstakes where one grand prize winner will receive a vehicle credit in the amount of $70,000 valid toward the winner’s choice of an Fiat Chrysler Automobiles vehicle from the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram Truck or Fiat brands.
Since 1993, the brand helped to raise more than $7 million through fundraising test drives. For information, visit cars4classrooms.com.
