As loathe as I am to be pimping for a car company in this space, in this case the deal for Prince Street School is simply too good to pass up: next Tuesday, June 19 from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Prince Street you can drop by and test drive a new Ford Fiesta, Focus or Fusion.
It just takes 20 minutes, there’s no sales person involved (a volunteer will ride along in the back seat with you), and the school gets $20 toward its playground campaign from Ford. You’ll be able to get a hot dog while you’re there too, just in case the test drive makes you hungry.
The only qualifications for the test drive are that you are 18 years of age or older, and that you have a valid driver’s license. You can book a spot online or, if you want to leave it to chance, just show up at the school parking lot that day.
This is a free and relatively painless way for you to support Prince Street School, so I’d encourage everyone in the readership to pop over on Tuesday (especially those — and I’m pointing at you, Steven Garrity — who live nearby and can stop in on their way home).
We can raise up to $6,000 on Tuesday if we can corral 300 people to take a test drive: that’s enough to buy a brand new set of swings for the playground, something the school hasn’t had for a long time. Just think how proud you’ll feel when you walk by the school and think “wow, my 15 minute test drive helped buy those swings: look at what joy they are bringing to the young children of the neighbourhood!”)
