PTSA Fundraiser for Challenge Day!

Friday May 10 from 2-8pm Mike Davidson Ford will be at Fletcher High School for our Challenge Day DRIVE 4UR SCHOOL Fund-raiser Event. Drivers must be 18 years old and have a valid driver’s license. For each separate household that test drives and completes the form, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to FHS PTSA. This is open to the entire community. We did not get any harassing follow ups, calls or emails, from the Ford Company wanting us to purchase Ford vehicles, this is something they do for the community and maybe you will think about that when buying your next vehicle.

So come out and support your school.
