There might not be an easier way to raise money for student groups at Kane Area High School.
The Ford Motor Company will donate $20 for every person who goes behind the wheel Saturday and âtest drivesâ a new Ford vehicle. In addition, the company will donate a âbonusâ of $10 for every âtest driveâ in a 2013 Ford Escape.
Ford will donate up to $8,000 under the program to benefit the âHurri-Kaneâ school yearbook, the Class of 2014 (juniors), the Class of 2015 (sophomores) and the Kane chapter of Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD).
It was a successful first Career and College Night at Kane Area High School.
The event, which was held Wednesday evening in conjunction with open house at the school, gave parents and students a chance to visit with representatives from colleges, industry and the military services.
"It was really a good idea," Phillip Carlson of Mt. Jewett said in commenting on the program in the school gymnasium. "It gives parents the chance to go from table to table to see what's available for their children."
