Blackhawk Motors in Prairie du Chien is hosting two unique opportunities for people interested in test driving a brand new Ford vehicle and, at the same time, raising money for Prairie du Chien High School and the Prairie du Chien Police Department’s forthcoming K9 unit.
First, on Monday, April 18, from 3 to 8 p.m., in the Prairie du Chien High School parking lot, drivers age 18 and older are invited to stop by and spend some time behind the wheel of a Ford vehicle as part of the Ford Drive 4 UR School. For every valid test drive taken, Ford will donate $20 to the school district, up to $6,000. The goal is to raise the maximum amount. The donation from Ford will go into the high school’s general fund and dispersed as determined by the school.
About 10 vehicles will be on site for test driving, including an Edge, Focus, Fusion, Escape, F-150, Mustang, etc.
