Ferrario Ford-Lincoln in Elmira is gearing up for its 3rd Annual White Hat Community Day. The event is set to be held on Saturday, June 22 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
It’s free to attend, open to the public, pet-friendly, and will feature music, food, contests, prize giveaways, car shows and more. More than 20 charitable organizations will be participating in the event, raising money by selling products and doing demonstrations.
“It’s a fun day all day long, and it’s also a chance to give back to the community,” said Don Ferrario.
Attendees can also test drive new 2019 Ford and Lincoln vehicles to benefit two local non-profits. Drive a new 2019 Lincoln and Ferrario will donate $20 to Fund For Women. Drive a new 2019 Ford and Ferrario will donate $20 for Economic Opportunity Program. 300 people are needed to test each car to raise $6,000 for each organization.
“We are so honored to be involved again this year,” said Krista Matia, a member of the Board of Directors for the Fund for Women of the Southern Tier. “Our mission is to empower girls and women, and we do that with the funds that are going to be raised at events like the White Hat Community Day. $6,000 goes a long way, and it stays here locally to help other people.”
“One of the mottos of the Economic Opportunity Program is strengthening the fabric of our community and so with this fundraiser, Ferrario allows us to raise that $6,000 so we need the people of our community to come out and drive on June 22,” said Amy Willette from the EOP of Chemung and Schuyler counties.
WETM will also be there from 10 a.m. – 3p.m. hosting “Be a Weathercaster!” Anyone can stand in front of the green screen and test out their meteorology skills.
