Hayes Chrysler-Plymouth-Dodge helps raise $1,110 for Mt. Vernon Exploratory Academy

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - Hayes Chrysler-Plymouth-Dodge has helped raise $1,110 in funding for Mount Vernon Exploratory Academy with Chrysler's Drive for the Kids program. The fundraising event was held on October 18 in conjunction with the school's Fall Festival.

"The Chrysler brand and our local dealerships are committed to giving back to the communities where we do business," said Al Gardner, Director at the Southeast Business Center for Chrysler Group LLC. "We are extremely proud to support both schools and organizations, as they encourage student development and growth."

Participants earned a $10 contribution to the school on their behalf from the Chrysler brand by taking a brief test drive in a 2013 model Town & Country minivan, as well as other Chrysler vehicles made available for test drives thanks to Hayes Chrysler-Plymouth-Dodge.

At the conclusion of the program, the school with the highest number of test drives in each one of the five geographic regions (Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Central, and West) will win an additional $5,000, for a total of $25,000 in additional funding from Chrysler through the Drive for the Kids
