Del Grande Dealer Group and Capitol Ford Raise Funds for East Valley Family YMCA with Test-Drive Fundraising Event

SAN JOSE, Calif. (June 11, 2019) Capitol Ford, proud member of the Del Grande Dealer Group (DGDG.com), the Bay Area’s largest family-owned automotive group, recently partnered with members of the local community to help raise funds for the East Valley Family YMCA at a test-drive event, as part of Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR Community program. More than 150 area residents test-drove a Ford vehicle at the East Valley YMCA on June 8. Capitol Ford, and Ford Motor Company donated $20 per test-drive, with funds going towards providing YMCA memberships to families.

In an effort to go further, Ford developed the Drive 4 UR Community program, which is modeled after the successful Drive 4 UR School program. To date, Ford Dealerships across the United States have helped raise more than $40 million for local schools and nonprofits, thanks to their hard work and the Drive 4 UR School and Drive 4 UR Community programs.

The event marked the start of DGDG’s Summer of Giving. Participating in the event to support the East Valley Family YMCA is just one of the many ways Del Grande Dealer Group gives back to the community through DGDG Does Good – Del Grande Does Good, the charitable arm of the DGDG dealership group. Through relationships and partnerships with charitable organizations, like Ford Drive 4 UR Community and the East Valley Family YMCA, employees participate to help those in need year-round.

“I am more than thrilled that so many people from the local community turned out to support the East Valley Family YMCA, and we are proud to have the Ford brand in the family at DGDG. Participants had the chance to take a fun, casual drive in one of our vehicles, while lending our community a much-needed helping hand,” said Shaun Del Grande, Del Grande Dealer Group CEO.

“This was our third year of the Ford Drive 4UR Community event at the East Valley Family YMCA and with your support, you are giving the gift of providing Y memberships to families, and teens where they have access to obtaining a Y experience no matter their financial circumstance,” said Lupe Ruvalcaba, East Valley Family YMCA Executive Director.   “The presence and partnership are significantly important in supporting the Y mission of strengthening families and communities. Together, we give the opportunity to live a healthy lifestyle.”
