Ford “Drive 4 UR Community” Event Will Raise Up To $6000 for FOCUS West Central PA

BEAVER FALLS, PA – April 22, 2019 – Ron Lewis Ford Beaver Falls is partnering with Ford Motor Company to host a “Drive 4 UR Community” Event that aims to raise up to $6000 for FOCUS West Central PA.  This exciting test-drive fundraiser will generate much-needed money for FOCUS’ programs that help families facing hunger in Beaver County.

Ron Lewis Ford is bringing Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR Community program to the Beaver Falls community in an effort to raise up to a maximum of $6,000 for FOCUS.  For every person who test-drives a new Ford vehicle at Ron Lewis Ford on Saturday, May 4th, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to FOCUS. To date, Ford Dealerships across the United States have helped raise more than $40 million for local schools and nonprofits, thanks to their hard work and the Drive 4 UR School and Drive 4 UR Community programs.

The FOCUS Backpack program provides weekend meals for almost 200 students in the Beaver Falls School District. FOCUS also provides a monthly breakfast for local families facing poverty and an emergency pantry providing non-perishable food, clothing, and household and hygiene items to help families and individuals in need.

“We are happy to do our part to support FOCUS and the important work they do for families in our area,” said Gwen Lewis, Co-President, Ron Lewis Automotive Group. “We’re excited to see how many test drives we can do in one day and 300 is our target.”  The event, which will be held from 9am-5pm will feature many vehicles from Ford’s impressive lineup.

“Whether you are looking to test out our vehicles, like the Focus, or want to try out technology features, like active park assist in the Escape, we will be able to put you behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle,” said Chris Peterson, Ron Lewis Ford General Sales Manager.

Dealership staff on-site will be able to assist with all Ford vehicles and provide additional information about each vehicle available for a test-drive.

“We, at FOCUS WCPA, are grateful and very excited for the opportunity that the Ford Motor Company and the Ron Lewis Ford Beaver Falls Team has provided our ministry,” said Peggy Rusnak, FOCUS.  “This event will aid those in need in Beaver and Lawrence counties, by benefitting our organization and thereby channeling assistance out to those in this area, that we serve.”

To participate in this exciting event and test-drive your favorite Ford vehicle, please visit Ron Lewis Ford between 9am and 5pm on Saturday, May 4th.  Complimentary food, entertainment and “How To” Clinics will also be provided for registered attendees. Event information is sharable at:
