Egglefield Bros. Ford will host a “Test Drive” Fundraiser for Elizabethtown Community Hospital as part of Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR Community program in an effort to raise up to $6,000 for Elizabethtown Community Hospital (ECH)!
Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the hospital for every person who test-drives a new Ford vehicle on Wednesday, June 5 from 10 am to 6 pm. The event will take place in the parking lot across from the hospital on Park Street in Elizabethtown.
The test drive fundraiser will feature many different vehicles including the newly designed Escape and Fusion, along with the Focus and F-150 truck. Also available for a test drive will be the C-MAX hybrid vehicle and a Mustang. Egglefield Bros staff members will be onsite to assist with test drives and provide additional information about each vehicle.
“We know that funding for many not-for-profit organizations comes with challenges; hospitals seem particularly vulnerable, even though healthcare is incredibly important,” said Dennis Egglefield. “Like ECH, Egglefield Bros. Ford has been a part of this community for generations – and like all community members, we believe that it’s important to help contribute to the hospital’s important programs – it is a necessary part of our community. We’re really excited to help raise money for the hospital.”
The more people who take a test drive, the more money that Ford Motor Company donates to the hospital. So tell your everyone!
Jane Hooper, community relations director at ECH commented about Egglefield Bros. generosity. “I’m thrilled that Egglefield’s chose to organize a fundraising event for the hospital,” she said. “It’s so easy for people to contribute – simply test drive a car and the hospital benefits by $20. It certainly doesn’t get much easier than that.”
