During the Chrysler Cars 4 Classrooms event, parents and friends of the school, will have the opportunity to earn a $10 contribution, up to $2,000, for Loftis Middle School students, by taking a brief test drive in the all-new Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid – the only hybrid minivan available on the market.
Any licensed driver, age 18 or older, may drive and earn $10 on the school’s behalf. Crown Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram will provide vehicles and staff to assist drivers with fundraising test drives and any questions they may have.
 
The Chrysler brand will also offer Loftis Middle School a chance to earn an additional $1,000 and be entered into a grand prize sweepstakes for up to $7,000 in additional funding, by sharing photos from the event on a public Facebook account within one week of the fundraiser’s date, and incorporating the provided customized hashtag #LMPacificaContest for Loftis Middle School and tagging @Chrysler. The contest ends Feb. 20.
 
“For 25 years, The Chrysler brand has been helping to raise money for elementary schools like Loftis Middle School,” said Southeast Business Center Regional Director Carlos Jimenez. “The Chrysler Cars 4 Classrooms event will offer Hixson parents and families a chance to experience the capabilities of the all-new Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid minivan conveniently, while attending an event in support of a cause that is personal to them.”
 
Additionally, all test drive participants will be entered into the 2017 FCA US National Sweepstakes at registration, for a chance to win $45,000 towards an eligible vehicle from any one of the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram Truck and FIAT brands.  
 
"In 2017, the Chrysler brand celebrates 25 years of commitment to its local schools and families. Since 1993, the brand helped to raise over 7 million dollars through fundraising test drives. For more information, visit www.cars4classrooms.com," officials said.
