BROOKLYN — Brooklyn Ford is providing a great opportunity to test drive a new vehicle at Michigan International Speedway as part of the Drive 4 UR Community program. And you just might find your next car, all while supporting MIS Cares.
From 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sept. 16, MIS welcomes back Drive 4 UR Community sponsored by Ford Motor Co. MIS and Brooklyn Ford have teamed up to present would-be new car owners an opportunity to drive a brand new Ford vehicle around the interior road course.
“It’s a great opportunity to test drive a new car, learn more about the latest technology in auto manufacturing and see what vehicle matches your needs,” says Jayme Bicknell, fan services manager for MIS.
Brooklyn Ford, on M-50, will provide all of the latest vehicles on-site and will offer guests the opportunity to test-drive them. For every family who test drives a vehicle, MIS Cares will receive $20 from Ford Motor Co.
“While everyone wins with the Drive 4 UR Community program, MIS Cares is the biggest winner, thanks to the support of Ford Motor Co.,” Bicknell says.
Guests should use the entrance off Brooklyn Highway and proceed to the Michigan Room located in the Infield Suites Building. The infield can be accessed via the vehicle/pedestrian tunnel under Turn 1. Each participant will be required to sign a liability waiver and must be 18 years old with a valid driver’s license.
Ford Motor and its dealers launched a program called Drive 4 UR Community, designed to help raise funding for local community groups and nonprofit organizations. For each Drive 4 UR Community event, Ford dealers will team up with a local nonprofit organization to schedule a test drive fundraising event. The dealers will provide the cars to be test-driven and work together with the nonprofit groups to organize and publicize the event. For every valid test drive completed per family, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the participating nonprofit or community group, up to a maximum of $6,000.
MIS focuses on charity through the program MIS Cares. In 2013, MIS and its sister company Americrown combined to donate more than $600,000 to local service groups and organizations through cash donations, work programs, grants and sponsorships, as well as tickets and merchandise that clubs raffle to raise money. MIS Cares awarded $76,469 in cash donations to local charities through its grant program. Another $60,000 was awarded through sponsorships and tickets those groups raffle off, also to raise money.
