There are three things we love here at Chris Leith Dodge. In no particular order, those things are: RAM Trucks, high school football, and giving back to our community.
We love RAM Trucks because they’re the best available, boasting the highest fuel economy and the highest rated towing capacity. The RAM 1500 is a back-to-back Motor Trend truck of the year for good reason, and the new EcoDiesel is coveted by many.
We love high school football because on a crisp October night, there’s not much better than gathering under the lights on Friday to cheer on our local teams.
We love giving back to the community because all of you mean much more to us than you probably realize. You’re not our customers – you’re our family.
It’s only fitting then that Chris Leith Dodge is sponsoring the RAM Gridiron Challenge Fundraiser this Friday, October 10, at Rolesville High School, home of the RAMs. Between 3:00 and 7:00 in the afternoon, our sales staff will be on hand with the award-winning RAM 1500 to offer test-drives to everyone in the community. There’s no purchase necessary, and for every test-drive completed, RAM Trucks is donating twenty dollars to Rolesville High School’s football program, up to five thousand dollars.
The goal for Friday is to do two hundred and fifty test-drives before kickoff, and as added incentive, the class that brings in the most participants will be awarded an additional five hundred dollars. There’s more than just test-driving fun to be had, too. The team mascot Rambo the ram will be there at 3:00 for photo opportunities, and the school is hosting a huge tailgate before the game at 5:00 p.m. Food and drink will be available from the booster club, but feel free to bring your own dinner.
For more details, we’ve shared the official press release for the RAM Gridiron Challenge below.
We could not be more thrilled to be part of this event and part of your community. We hope to see you Friday night. Go RAMS!
‘RAM GRIDIRON CHALLENGE FUNDRAISER®’ IS COMING TO Rolesville High School
Chris Leith Dodge Ram Teams Up With Parents And Fans to Raise Funds for Rams Football
October 10, 2014—ROLESVILLE RAMS FOOTBALL TEAM will host a “Ram Gridiron Challenge Fundraiser” as part of Ram Football Fundraiser on OCTOBER 10, 2014 between 3:00 and 7:00 at the CARPOOL ENTERANCE IN THE TEACHERS PARKING LOT. Ram Truck brand will contribute $20 to ROLESVILLE HIGH SCOOL’S football program for each person who takes a short test drive at the event, up to $5,000. CHRIS LEITH DODGE RAM will have the new award-winning Ram 1500, as well as other trucks, available for participants to experience and drive.
Volunteers from the dealership will be on hand to assist with the test drives. Anyone age 18 or over, with a valid driver’s license, may drive and earn a donation. In the spirit of friendly competition between the freshmen, sophomores and juniors, Ram Truck brand will also award an additional $500 to the class that brings in the greatest number of test drives during the event.
“Together with CHRIS LEITH DODGE RAM, we are challenging our families and fans to help us raise up to $5,000 in one day,” said ERICKA LUCAS, PRINCIPAL. “This is a great opportunity for our fans to lend their support without reaching into their own pockets. We are hoping everyone stops by the Ram Truck tent and takes a few minutes to drive for the ROLESVILL RAMS FOOTBALL TEAM.” The whole community is invited to come out and join us at the Varsity home football game day continued Coach Tommy Moore, Athletic director. “Take a short test drive in the Ram Truck of your choice, and help the Rolesville Ram Team.”
Chrysler Group LLC has supported schools in the communities where the company does business since 1993, and has raised over $5 million for America’s schools through programs like the “Ram Gridiron Challenge Fundraiser”. Last year, the “Ram Gridiron Challenge Fundraiser” alone raised over $150,000 for 50 football programs nationwide.
