Florence & White Ford and the Ford Motor Company are offering DCHS Football the opportunity to raise thousands of dollars with their annual test drive program on Friday, August 5 prior to a scrimmage game against Friendship Christian. Tiger football fans can earn money for the DCHS football program by simply test-driving a new Ford at the school.
The scrimmage game starts at 6:30 p.m. but fans are invited to come out as early as 3:30 p.m. to enjoy a meal and to test drive a new Ford vehicle by the Florence & White dealership in Smithville. For every valid test drive, Ford will donate money to the football program.
Tiger Coach Steve Trapp says the more fans who come out and test drive a new Ford vehicle, the more money will be made for DCHS football.
“We just want to get as many people involved as we can. We’re really thankful to Florence & White Ford. They are going to be out with some real nice vehicles and everybody who test drives a vehicle for Ford, they actually donate money back to our program. We have an opportunity to really get our community involved and to really help our program out as well with a significant amount of money. We’ll also have some food available to purchase as well including barbeque, chips, and ice cream. If you’re getting off work and cruising by and need something to eat and want to drive a real nice car and watch some great football you’ll be able to take advantage of that on August 5th,” said Coach Trapp.
