Ford of Canada and Nelson Ford partnered to raise $1,400 for the Kaslo Youth Centre this past summer as part of Ford’s Drive One 4 UR Community program.
More than 80 community members came out to test drive one of roughly eight different vehicles, everything from the fuel efficient Ford Focus to the workhorse F350.
“When the program was announced I let our sales staff pick the events we would host and our top salesman, Keith Phillips, suggested we host an event in Kaslo,” said Russell Stocks, general manager of Nelson Ford. “The community of Kaslo has long been a great supporter of Nelson Ford and we took this opportunity to give a little something back.
“Our staff work extremely hard both inside and outside of the dealership. In fact, this event was held on a Sunday and all of our sales staff graciously donated their time away from their families to come support this event. I am extremely proud of the team we have and it just shows you how committed we are.”
