The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Kyle Smylie The Drumheller Mail

This Fri­day and Satur­day you’ll have the chance to get in the driver’s seat of new Buik and GMC ve­hi­cles while raising funds for St. An­thony’s School’s ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties and sports pro­grams at the Buick Drive for Your Stu­dents Test-Drive event.

From 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. June 10 at St. An­thony’s School over a dozen new ve­hi­cle mod­els will be avail­able for free test drives, and Buick will do­nate $20 for ev­ery valid drive taken, up to a max­i­mum of $10,000.

The event will ex­tend to the fol­low­ing day, June 11, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and West­ern GM and St. An­tho- ny’s will also host a car wash and bar­be­cue fundraiser for the Drumheller Com­mu­nity Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion that day at the deal­er­ship.

Gen­eral Sales Man­ager Brad LeDrew said they chose St. An­thony’s in or­der to help build their new run­ning track and ath­letic field.

“We talked to all the val­ley schools and chose St. An­thony’s be­cause of their new field, which will also be ac­ces­si­ble for res­i­dents of the val­ley to train on,” said LeDrew. “Buick has a man­date that the money is to go to­wards a project that is sports re­lated and pub­licly ac­ces­si­ble, so it fits both those niches.”

He said they have spo­ken to both DVSS and Green­tree about host­ing a se­cond Buick Test Drive event next year to sup­port those schools’ base­ball field resur­fac­ing project and play­ground ex­pan­sion, re­spec­tively.
