The one-day event took place during the homecoming football game, on Saturday, October 15, 2016. For every test-drive of a new Ford vehicle at Leo Kaytes, the Ford Motor Company made a donation to Warwick Valley schools. Participating test-drivers had the option to designate an athletic team or club as the recipient.

During the eight years Leo Kaytes Ford has sponsored Drive 4 UR School, the company has raised over $48,000 for Warwick Valley schools.

“The event was a huge success and a great opportunity for the district’s athletics program. We are very grateful to the staff at Leo Kaytes Ford, namely, Leslie Culkin, Leo Kaytes Jr. and Leo Kaytes Sr. for their continued support,” said Gregory Sirico, director of athletics.
