Ride and Drive Fundraiser THIS SATURDAY

LaFontaine Subaru Ride and Drive

Saturday April 29th from 10am-1pm  

You can pre-register with the link below.  This is real simple, LaFontaine does all the work for us, we just need to provide drivers.  They donate $20 for each test driver, max of 75 drivers.  You can walk up on the day of, but pre-registering gives us a better headcount.  There is no limit to number of drivers per household, you just need to be a licensed driver 18 yrs or older, or 16-18yrs with license or permit and parent/guardian.  No reason we should not max out on this.  This is an EASY fundraiser that is 100% profit!
