Family, friends, neighbors and relatives of Hastings High School band students, along with all community members, are invited to take a test drive in a new Ford vehicle at Hastings Ford. It's easy, there is no sales pressure, and it only takes 15-20 minutes.

For each test drive, the Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the band program. If you take a drive in the name of a specific student, the donation goes directly to their band account.

Drivers must be 18 years or older and have a valid driver's license. Ford Motor Company will donate up to 300 test drives. One donation per person, and one donation per household.

To participate, please visit Hastings Ford on Thursday, April 19th, 2018 (11:00am - 7:00pm) .
