Ford hosts fundraiser for Ghostrider scholarship fund

Fernie Ford hosted a fundraiser in honour of the Ghostrider’s scholarship fund on Oct. 3.

Fernie Ford hosted a fundraiser in honour of the Ghostrider’s scholarship fund on Saturday afternoon. The Drive for your Community fundraiser saw roughly 250 people test drive a new Ford vehicle, and Ford will donate $20 for every test drive to the Fernie Ghostriders.

Andrew Moore, General Manager of Fernie Ford, said that the event saw a good turn out despite the fickle weather. “We had a good turn out, cold day unfortunately, but people still made it out,” he said.

Members of the Ghostriders were on site barbequing and encouraging people to stop in and test drive a new Ford for the cause. Head coach Craig Mohr was also there, mingling with community members before Saturday night’s game against the Revelstoke Grizzlies.

Ford plans to donate up to $6,000 to the scholarship fund, which is awarded to a Ghostrider player at the end of the year to help pay for their post-secondary education.
