FUNDRAISER: Thomas Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and the Dodge corporate brand raised $3,200 for Union Local High School courtesy of a special automotive promotion.

Thomas Chrysler and Dodge sponsored a Dodge Booster Club fundraiser recently, inviting area residents to come out and test drive the 2013 Dodge Durango, Dodge Journey, Dodge Avenger and Dodge Dart. For each test drive taken, they donated $20 to the high school.

The dealership provided vehicles as well as staff to assist with the test drives. A total of 160 test drives were taken.

"We enjoyed working with the parents and students in our community and appreciated the opportunity to help Union Local High School," said Robert Thomas, vice president of Thomas Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. "The Dodge school fundraisers are always friendly and fun for everyone, and we think it's important as a fourth-generation business to always give back to the community and show our respect."

The dealership has been in business for more than a century.

Dodge's Booster Club program raised more than $690,000 for high schools throughout the country last year alone, officials said.
