Event Name:
Ride, Drive and Thrive Fund Raiser - Sat, June 15th
06/15/2019 - 06/19/2019
We have exciting news!

Friendly Ford is hosting our 4th annual Drive 4 UR Community fundraiser. This years fund raiser is going to be even bigger and better because Friendly Fords neighbor Geneva Harley Davidson is joining in this one day fund raising event.

Both Friendly Ford and Geneva Harley Davidson will have simultaneous events going on and anyone that comes to either business will be able to partake in all of the activities.

At Friendly Ford we will be having our Ford Drive 4 UR Community test drive event, a Cars and Coffee car show highlighting all of the new Ford cars and trucks (want to show off your car or truck, drive it in and take part in our car show). Finger Lakes Corn Hole will also be onsite hosting a Corn Hole tournament. These are open and free for everyone to take part in.

Geneva Harley Davidson is inviting the community and anyone wanting to ride their motorcycle to stop by for a fun motorcycle show, tour their beautiful showroom and see all the latest Harley's, and check out some great arts, food, crafts and henna artist vendor booths.

Thrive to Survive will be hosting a chicken bbq the day of the event. Tickets are available in advance for $10.00 and $11.00 day of event. Ticket pre-sales will begin in May and be available at Geneva Harley/Friendly Ford/TTS. If you purchase a chicken bbq ticket you will receive a receipt as proof of purchase and your dinner will be reserved and available for pick up by you the day of the event from 11-3. Thrive will also have many raffles/auction items the day of the Ride, Drive and Thrive fund raiser. Ticket pre-sales will also begin in May and be available online. One ticket $5.00 and three for $10.00. Winners will be announced at 5pm the day of the event and do not need to be present. We will call winners and make arrangements for pick up of their prizes. All proceeds will benefit Thrive to Survive's mission to help adults with cancer.

Ford Motor Company and Friendly Ford are sponsoring Thrive to Survive for the Ford Drive 4UR Community test drive event on Saturday, June 15th from 10am-5pm. We need your help to reach out goal of 300 test drives.

For every test drive taken in a Ford vehicle with a Thrive to Survive volunteer at Friendly Ford, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to Thrive to Survive up to $6,000 per event. What makes this event even more significant is that Friendly Ford is matching the donation making it $40 per test drive taken.

If you are 18 or older with a valid drivers license we hope you will consider coming out to support Thrive to Survive in reaching our goal of 300 test drives. While you are onsite for a test drive, join us for great food, friends, live entertainment and a corn hole tournament.

100% of all funds raised will be utilized to provide emotional and financial support to area adults in treatment for cancer.

We look forward to having you Ride or Drive in to help us fight cancer. See you June 15th.
