WOODSTOCK – Bull Valley Ford, 1460 S. Eastwood Drive, Woodstock, presented a check for $4,750 to the Woodstock High School Backers Club June 15 to benefit all atletic programs at the high school.

The funds were the culmination of Bull Valley Ford’s and Ford Motor Co.’s Drive 4 UR School fundraiser.

In addition to raising money for the Blue Streaks by test driving new 2013 Fords, the many supporters in attendance at Bull Valley Ford were treated to a Car Show, which featured a deejay, concession stand, and a fire engine from the Woodstock Fire Department.

“We were very pleased to be able to give back to our community by helping to support one of Woodstock High School’s fine programs," said Bull Valley Ford owner Jack Cronan. "We enjoy being an integral part of the Woodstock community andlook forward to continuing our efforts to work together to benefit WHS and theBlue Streaks.”

The Drive 4 UR School program is a fun, engaging way to help schools raise money to support their sports and extracurricular activities. Ford and Ford Lincoln dealerships partner with local high schools to conduct test-drive fundraising events.
