MANLIUS – Drivers can raise money for Bureau Valley High School’s Renaissance Program by test driving new Ford vehicles from 3 to 6:30 p.m. Aug. 22 at the school, 9154 County Road 2125 North.

The vehicles are from Fisch Motors in Walnut. For each test drive, Ford and Fisch will donate $20 to the program.

The drivers must be at least 18 and have a valid driver’s license. Test drives are limited to one per household, with each one lasting 7 to 10 minutes. Drivers will be asked to fill out a short form. They will not be contacted after the drive.

A concession stand will be open from 5 to 8;30 p.m. at the high school. Proceeds also will benefit the program.

Renaissance is a national recognition effort designed to boost a school’s academics. Activities include awards, breakfasts, field trips, and birthday cakes and announcements.
