HASTINGS – The Hastings YMCA and the Hastings Ford Lincoln are teaming up for a fundraiser called the Lincoln Driven to Give.
On Saturday, April 13 from 8:30 to 4:30 people can go to Hastings Ford Lincoln, test drive a car, and they’ll donate $40 to the Hastings YMCA for every test drive.
Troy Stickels, the CEO of the Hastings YMCA, says there will be more than just test drives that day.
We’re going to have food there. We’re going to have a group from Hastings High there selling bake sale items. We’re going to have a bounce house. All different types of things going on. So it’s going to be a fun day. Soccer will be going on behind the softball complex, so when people are done with soccer come by and drive. I think we’re going to have free hot dogs. All kinds of stuff. So come, help the Y.
When you do test drive a car there will be no sales pitch and no pressure to buy a car. The money will go towards the Annual Campaign that helps fund scholarships and helps offset expenses for memberships. The goal this year is to get 300 people to test drive a car.
