A driving force

Test driving a new vehicle at Semiahmoo Secondary  this Saturday (May 14) could make a big difference to the school’s band program.

That’s because the program will receive $20 for each person who test drives a   vehicle at the school (1785 148 St.), between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Students from the band department will also be performing at the event, part of Ford Motor Company of Canada’s Drive One 4 UR School campaign.

Aim of this Saturday’s event is to raise $6,000 for the band program.

“Partnering with Ocean Park Ford for this fundraising event is an incredible help for our band and school,” music department head Dave Fullerton said in a release.
