Fundraising Opportunity: Ford Drive 4UR School

Saturday, April 7th, we will hold our annual Ford Drive 4UR school event! This is an easy opportunity to earn money for your team, club or academy!


Members of the community can earn money for NSBHS by simply test-driving a new Ford at the school on Saturday, April 7, between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM.

For every person who takes a Ford vehicle for a spin during the Drive One 4UR School event, Ford and Mullinax Ford will donate $20 to New Smyrna Beach High School. The test-drive will only take about 4 to 5 minutes.

There will be an additional Bonus Drive with the opportunity to earn an additional $20 for your school by test driving a Ford Expedition.
