Drive One 4 Ur School

The Piedmont Athletic Booster Club is gearing up for the fundraising event "Drive One 4 Ur School".  On October 2 from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., members of the Piedmont community are invited to come out and test drive one of ten new vehicles from Dale Jarrett Ford.  For each test drive, the Booster Club will receive $20 with a maximum of 300 test drives or $6000.  Last year, this event raised over $5000 to support the Piedmont athletic program!

The unique thing about this event is that Piedmont is not selling anything and you do not have to buy anything!  All we are asking is 15 minutes of your time and come test drive a vehicle from Dale Jarrett Ford.  The one question that many have asked is "Is there pressure to buy a car?"  The answer is no!  There are no salesmen at the event, no pressure to buy a car, and the follow up that people received last year was an e-mail and some flyers in the mail.  Athletic Director Bob Gearhart summarizes the event like this, "The Drive One 4 Ur School fundraiser is a great opportunity for our Booster Club.  With some preplanning and one day of work, the return is tremendous!  This event was a huge success for us last year, and we anticipate another great outing this year.  We are very thankful for the opportunity to partner with Dale Jarrett Ford and raise some much needed funds for our athletic program."  

Please join us if you can.  The event will start at 8 am and last until 5pm, or sooner if we get 300 test drives!
