White River partners with Fugate

Ford Motor Company and Fugate Ford Mercury will be partnering Saturday to help raise money for the White River High boys basketball program as part of Ford’s Drive One 4 UR School program.

Community members can help raise up to $6,000 for the Hornet program by test driving a Ford or Mercury vehicle at the school.

Ford Motor Company and Fugate Ford Mercury will donate $20 to White River High for every person from a unique household who test drives a select new Ford or Mercury vehicle during a Saturday fundraiser. To participate, visit the White River High campus on 120th Street East in Buckley between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Fugate Ford Mercury participated in Ford’s Drive One 4 UR School program last year and raised approximately $2,500 for local students.

Since the start of the program in 2007, the program has raised more than $2.3 million for close to 700 high schools across the country.

“We look forward to partnering with our community in support of White River High School,” said Gloria Perry, a manager at Fugate Ford Mercury. “Our schools need our support now more than ever and we’re proud to be able to help through Drive One 4 UR School.”
