Murphysboro school has unique "driving" fundraiser

MURPHYSBORO, IL (KFVS) -

A unique fundraiser for Murphysboro athletics is scheduled Saturday evening at Murphysboro High School.

The Ford Drive One 4 UR School event is Saturday from 6-8 p.m.

Ford dealerships partner with a local high school to conduct a test drive fund-raising event. For every valid test-drive completed, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the participating high school up to $6,000.

Vogler Ford is providing the cars and the Murphysboro High school cheerleaders, devils dazzler dance team, and the Murphysboro athletic booster association will take home the proceeds.

In addition to the test drives, a group of student athletes will be filming a video to submit to the Ford Drive One 4 UR School video competitions.

If they win that they could take home an additional $6000 for their school.
