Ford’s Test Drive 4 UR School and Community Program

On September 17, 2014 , the Graduate Student Society invites you to take part in our Annual Student Appreciation Barbecue! This year, as a special addition we will be including a Stationary Test Drive with Rose City Ford!

The GSS invites you to participate in Ford’s Test Drive 4 UR School and Community Program that we will be holding at the same time as the Barbecue! With every test drive form filled out, Ford will donate $20 to the GSS, and we will put the money raised towards programs for Graduate Students at the University of Windsor! Vehicles included will be the 2014 Ford F-150, Edge, Escape, Fusion and Focus.

Since we will be having the event as part of our Annual Barbecue, the Test Drive will be Stationary, and you will be able to get inside the vehicles to check out all of the available features!

We look forward to seeing you out on September 17, 2014 for the GSS Annual Barbecue AND our Ford Stationary Test Drive Event!

Don’t forget to fill out the attached ‘Test Drive Waiver’ in full and print it off to participate! (They are required before getting into ANY of the vehicles!). Only one properly filled out waiver form is required from the same address (If you are residing in a place shared by more than one student). Please bring your driving license.

See you there! (And if we get poured on, we’ll see you on the rain-date of September 18, 2014)
