Slot Car Racers Helped Raise $10,000 For New York City Public Schools

Borgman Ford in Grand Rapids would like to congratulate the Ford Drive 4 UR School program on their 10th anniversary! This program has given us the opportunity to help the Grandville Band Boosters year after year, with members of the community test driving New Ford Vehicles to raise up to $6,000.

To celebrate 10 years and helping schools raise over $30 million to date, Ford decided to go big with a 2-day event at the Oculus at Westfield World Trade Center in New York City.  The event featured amazing on-site activities, such as a larger-than-life slot-car racetrack, a chalk and mural wall stationed with a swing for photos, and even a kiddie course. These activities centered on the impact school makes and showcased the difference Ford and Drive 4 UR School have made for education over the past 10 years.

On top of highlighting the importance of education and raising awareness for the program, Ford donated $10 to New York City Public Schools for every person who drove a slot car on the oversized track – up to $10,000!
