“The After-Prom Committee would like to thank Empire Ford for hosting the Drive 4 UR School event, in support of Greater New Bedford Vocational Technical High School,” said Jenn Gaspar, After-Prom Coordinator.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for us to sponsor the Drive 4 UR School event at Greater New Bedford Voc Tech. We are excited to sponsor this great fundraising event,” said Rick Torres, owner of Empire Ford of New Bedford.

This was the fourth event over the past 10 years held at GNBVT. Other local schools who have participated include Dartmouth High School, Old Rochester Regional High School, Fairhaven High School, New Bedford High School and Bristol Aggie. The next scheduled event will take place at Old Colony Regional Technical High School in Rochester next spring.

Since the start of Ford’s Drive 4 UR School program in 2007, more than $11 million in donations have been generated for high schools nationwide.  Locally, Empire Ford, formerly Ashley Ford, has helped to raise over $45,000 for local schools in Massachusetts.
