Exciting test-drive fundraising event will generate much-needed money for Mission Bay High, helping students in the local community.

Mossy Automotive Group is bringing Ford Motor Company’s Drive One 4 UR School program to Mission Bay High School on Oct. 13 in an effort to raise up to $6,000 for the school.

For every person who takes the wheel and test-drives a new Ford vehicle at Mission Bay High on Thursday, Oct. 13, Mossy Ford and Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to Mission Bay High School. The funds will go toward supporting numerous programs and clubs at the school.

“We know funding for school programs is hard to come by, and we want to do our part to help make sure these programs remain available,” said Owen Mossy, General Manager at Mossy Ford. “We’re excited to raise money for Mission Bay High School.”

The event, which will be held from 3pm to 8pm, will feature the many vehicles from Ford’s line-up.

“Whether you are looking to test out our larger vehicles, like the Explorer or F-150, or are more interested in a smaller sedan, like the Focus, we will be able to put you behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle,” said Owen Mossy. Dealership staff on site will be able to assist with all Ford vehicles and provide additional information about each vehicle available for test-drive.

Across the United States, there are vital arts, music and sports programs that are being cut annually due to growing budgetary constraints and lack of funding. Today’s youth are missing out on extremely valuable opportunities to expand their knowledge and diversify their interests, as well as the chance to have a little fun! Mossy Ford wants to keep these opportunities available for our local students at Mission Bay High School.

Since the start of Ford’s Drive One 4 UR School program in 2007, more than $7 million in donations have been generated for high schools nationwide.

To participate in this exciting event and get behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle, please visit
Mission Bay High School from 2-7 p.m. on October 13th.

\Participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver’s license. There is a limit of one test-drive per household. All test-drive will last approximately 7-10 minutes.
