Thousands raised for Bonham ISD extracurricular activities

By  | 

BONHAM, TX -- More than 100 people got to test drive a new set of wheels today, while helping out Bonham ISD.

Today was the "Drive 4 UR School" event sponsored by Bob Utter and Blake Utter Ford.

The district earned $20 dollars for each test drive. All proceeds will help Bonham ISD volleyball, football and band.

Sponsors say budget cuts are affecting Texas schools, and that's why events like these are important.

"It's up to businesses and private enterprises and private people to kind of pick up the slack on that kind of thing. And this is the way we feel like we can help," Blake Utter said.

The event raised almost $3,000 dollars for the school.

The next "Drive 4 UR School" event will be in Pottsboro on September 7th.
