Test drive event this weekend for St. Anthony’s athletic field expansion
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.
