Sherry L. Bradley, customer relations manager for the dealership, presented Presque Isle Boosters Club President Herman Legassie with a check for $1,080 in a ceremony June 15 at the Presque Isle business.

The spring Drive 4Ur School event was held at Presque Isle Middle School and was organized by Griffeth staff. For every person who took a free test drive in a new Ford vehicle, the dealer made a $20 donation to the Boosters.

“The parents, faculty, students and community people all seem to enjoy the opportunity to experience the new Ford vehicles in this different environment, along with knowing their school is benefiting as well,” said Bradley.

This is the seventh Drive 4Ur School event the dealer has organized for area Booster Clubs, generating to date over $18,000 to support school athletics.
