Test drives accelerate curling club

There will be a Drive 4 UR Community test-drive event Saturday (Oct. 18) in an effort to raise money for the Nanaimo Curling Centre.

Steve Marshall Ford Lincoln is once again bringing Ford of Canada Limited’s Drive 4 UR Community program to Nanaimo.

There will be a test-drive event Saturday (Oct. 18) in an effort to raise money for the Nanaimo Curling Centre. For every person who test drives a Ford vehicle at the event, the dealership and Ford of Canada will donate $20 to the club. The event is from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the curling centre at 106 Wall Street.

“We’re excited to partner with the Nanaimo Curling Club,” said Sherdan White, events and promotions leader at Steve Marshall Ford Lincoln. “The Drive program is a great opportunity to help support local organizations, but it also allows the community to share in the experience of driving a Ford vehicle.”

The event will feature the Ford F-150, Explorer, Fusion, Fiesta, Escape and Focus.

The Nanaimo Curling Club aims to raise $6,000. Money raised will go towards purchasing new equipment and to help fund local curling.

This will be Steve Marshall Ford Lincoln’s 10th Drive 4 UR Community event. The dealership has raised over $17,000 for local schools, teams and charities.
