Test drives will raise funds

NEGAUNEE — From 3-5 p.m. Wednesday, during an open house event at the school, Fox Negaunee Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram will host a Chrysler Cars 4 Classrooms fundraiser for Negaunee Middle School students.

During the Chrysler Cars 4 Classrooms event, parents and friends of the school, will have the opportunity to earn a $10 contribution, up to $2,000, for Negaunee Middle School students, by taking a brief test drive in the all-new Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid, the only hybrid minivan available on the market. Any licensed driver, age 18 or older, may drive and earn $10 on the school’s behalf. Fox Negaunee Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram will provide vehicles and staff to assist drivers with fundraising test drives and any questions they may have.

The Chrysler brand will also offer Negaunee Middle School a chance to earn an additional $1,000 and be entered into a grand prize sweepstakes for up to $7,000 in additional funding, by simply sharing photos from the event on a public Facebook account within one week of the fundraiser’s date and incorporating the provided customized hashtag #NMSPacificaContest for Negaunee Middle School and tagging @Chrysler. The contest ends Wednesday, Sept. 5.
