Briarwood Ford hopes to help Washtenaw Christian Academy raise $6,000 Saturday.

The local Ford dealership is hosting a Drive For Your School event between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the school, located at 7200 Moon Road in Saline.

For every test drive, Ford will donate $20 to the school. 300 test drives will raise $6,000.

Steve Whitener, owner of Briarwood Ford, said the dealership plans to have 15 new cars, trucks and SUVs available for test drives. All one must do is show up with their driver’s license. Sales people are on hand to answer questions but they do not pressure test drivers for sales.

Drivers must be 18.

Briarwood Ford had a similar event for the Saline Music Boosters May 13 at Harvest Elementary School.
