Auto Nation Ford is bringing Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR Community program to Bradenton to raise funds for Manatee County Habitat for Humanity. For every person who test-drives a new Ford vehicle, Manatee Habitat will receive a $20 donation from Auto Nation Ford. The event will be held at Manatee Habitat ReStore located at: 5108 15th St E, Bradenton, FL 34203 on Saturday March 16th. The event, which will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m, will feature many vehicles from Ford’s impressive lineup. Dealership staff on-site will be able to assist with all Ford vehicles and provide additional information about each vehicle available for a test-drive.

“We are delighted to partner with Auto Nation Ford on this new event for Manatee Habitat. We hope everyone will come out for a test drive and checkout our new Habitat ReStore Thrift Store,”said Diana Shoemaker, Executive Director at Manatee Habitat.

“We know funding for community programs is hard to come by, and we want to do our part to help make sure these programs remain available,” said Skye Bardill, General Manager at AutoNation Ford “We’re excited to raise money for Manatee Habitat for Humanity.”

“Whether you are looking to test out our vehicles, like the Focus, or want to try out technology features, like active park assist in the Escape, we will be able to put you behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle,” said Bardill.

To participate in this exciting event and test-drive your favorite Ford vehicle, please visit Manatee Habitat for Humanity at manateehabitat.org and sign up online or just stop by during the test drive event. The goal of this event is to reach 300 test drives and raise $6,000.

Vendors from the Oneco Shopping Center have come together to help Manatee Habitat with raffle items and coupons to help attract more people to the Test Drive.      

No purchase is necessary, but drivers must be 18 years of age or older with a valid driver’s license and valid automobile insurance.
