Two Courtenay schools joined forces with local car dealership Ford Country last month to raise over $5,000 for the schools’ dry grad events this summer.

Mark R. Isfeld Secondary’s Drive One 4 UR School event was held on school premises. Hundreds of supporters test-drove their favourite Ford, helping to raise $4,200 for the school.

G.P. Vanier Secondary held its event at Ford Country, raising over $1,000 with the support of the community. Ford Country and Canada of Ford Limited donated $20 to each school for every car that was test-driven.

Ford Country will also award a $500 scholarship to Isfeld for raising the most money through their Drive One event. It will be awarded at graduation ceremonies at the end of June.
