The DCHS Football Program received a check from Florence & White Ford of Smithville Wednesday evening in the amount of $6,020.
The check was presented to DCHS Football Coach Steve Trapp and DCHS Quarterback Club President Darrell Gill by Jimmy White of Florence & White Ford. The funds were raised in a Ford Test Drive Event held during “Football Community Night” at the high school in August sponsored by the Quarterback Club. Florence & White Ford brought in new Ford vehicles and donated money to the football program based on the number of test drives taken during the evening. Football fans also enjoyed a barbeque dinner and a scrimmage game between the Tigers and Friendship Christian.
Coach Trapp said he appreciates the support of Florence & White Ford and the community for the football program at DCHS. “This is something that will really help our program. Florence & White Ford supports DeKalb County athletics and especially football and we appreciate them. It was a good event that came together well with a lot of great people including our quarterback club. I can’t say enough how much we appreciate our county and Florence & White Ford. The money raised will be put to good use as far as supporting our program,” said Coach Trapp.
“We really appreciate Jimmy and the kind folks at Florence & White Ford. This Test Drive for Ford is great for our football program and it’s great for our community. It allowed fans to come out, enjoy barbeque, and help kick off the football season. We are looking at doing this as an annual thing and if you’re going to buy a new ford make sure you go to Florence & White Ford and give these guys a first chance,” said Darrell Gill, President of the DCHS Quarterback Club.
“We’re just happy to be able to help out and give back to the community,” added Jimmy White of Florence & White Ford.
