Ford Motor Company Fund and North Texas Ford Dealers Award $440,000 

DALLAS, TX. May 23, 2017 – In its third consecutive year, Ford Motor Company Fund collaborates to match every dollar invested by the North Texas Ford dealers to award $440,000 in Ford Driving Dreams scholarships to 220 senior high school students. North Texas Ford dealers and Ford Fund have contributed more than $3 million and impacted close to 35,000 students since the collaboration began in 2015.

“Education is pivotal in the development of our communities, and Ford Motor Company Fund is committed to empowering the communities where we do business by investing in the education of our youth,” said Jim Vella, president, Ford Motor Company Fund and Services. “Our work with the North Texas Ford dealers is a model collaborative effort that demonstrates a strong commitment to help our future generation of leaders succeed.”

Ford Motor Company Fund, the philanthropic arm of Ford Motor Company, will celebrate the scholarship recipients at an evening event filled with surprises at Ford Center at the Star, a 12,000-seat indoor stadium that is used for practice for the Dallas Cowboys and also hosts Frisco ISD football games.

At the celebration, students, parents, and community leaders will hear from international empowerment speaker Alex Montoya, who will share his story of perseverance and overcoming challenges to achieve success despite being a triple amputee. Popular radio DJ Armando Ulloa, known as “El Chiquilín”, Ford dealers and Ford region executives will also attend the celebration. At the event, Ford Fund will also launch the new www.FordDrivingDreams.com website that will feature educational resources and information for students, parents, and teachers.

“The North Texas Ford dealers are excited about the ongoing affiliation with Ford Fund to help the communities where we do business thrive,” said Greg Wood, North Texas regional sales manager, Ford Motor Company. “By investing in the Ford Driving Dreams scholarship program, the North Texas Ford dealers are making a difference and putting students on the path to a great college experience.”

Launched in 2012, the Ford Driving Dreams Tour was designed by Ford Motor Company Fund to help youth graduate on time and pursue higher education. North Texas is a Ford Operation Better World market enabling Ford Fund, dealers and other groups to collaborate on a strategic approach to philanthropy to more effectively meet community needs. The scholarships are administered by Stars on the Rise, an education initiative by the Greater Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. In addition to Ford Driving Dreams, Ford Fund educational programs include Ford Blue Oval Scholars, Ford Next Generation Learning, Ford College Community Challenge, and the Ford STEAM Lab.

The 2016 Ford Mustang GT Test Drive

Today I was invited to a special test drive with many #Ford vehicles in North Texas and when I arrived and checked in and was asked which vehicle I wanted to go on test drive with, it wasn’t an easy task. I am an owner of a 2016 #Ford Escape Titanium and love it but wanted to test the speed and grip of the 2016 #Ford Mustang 5.0 GT California Special and whoa it hugs the road like velvet. From Plano to Prosper, Texas we took this package of coolness on a power drive.

The sexy interior gave me the feeling of being a pilot in the cockpit of a private jet, the small gear shift was perfectly set with a comfortable armrest. A standard in all Ford vehicles, having the bluetooth, smart mobility is part of the fun as I zipped up and down the North Dallas Tollway, shhh don’t tell anyone. Go test it today for yourself at your local Ford dealership.

Creative Juice Online Live from #FordNAIAS

We are currently in Detroit, Michigan, home to #FORD and host city for the 2016 North American International Auto Show where we’ve been exclusively invited by #Ford to explore, engage with their latest lines of vehicles.  Do I have my favorite?  So hard to explain that I have selected several.  I am a #FordFamily already driving my #FordEscape Titanium and loved it so much I got my wife one.  Together we just love our Fords.

So far I am torn between the new #FordEdge and #FordFusion with a spectacular sunroof like I’ve never seen before (photos below) and the new #FordEdge.  Not quite sure which I will upgrade to this year but I am most definitely testing these two great #Ford vehicles.  I must say the forever favorite #FordMustang is one slick ride! I am having blast with my #FordNAIAS familia and look forward to more fun.  I will be back soon…

 

Creative Juice Online amazing #FurtherWithFord2015 journey

We just wrapped up our amazing journey with the #FurtherWithFord2015 event in San Francisco and just as the city leaves us breathless so does the #FordTrends experience.  Being tech junkies we are we were fascinated by not only the advacement of #Ford but their very progressive nature to engage in Silicon Valley amongst the world’s top brands such as Facebook, Google, etc in tech valley as we love to call it!

The most intriguing live talks by CEO of Ford, Mark Fields to a packed house to Co-Founder of Reddit, to 3D Robotics to the company SAP that lights up #Ford in Silicon Valley, I experienced the most exciting tour of the mindset of #FordTech and their #FordGreen investment towards the present and future. More than just a vehicle, Ford’s investment to their customers goes way beyond what anyone can possibly imagine.  I personally wish to thank you #FordTrends #FordEspanol and the great Grand Hyatt Hotel staff and service, top notch as always! I look forward to 2016 and most definitely returning to this lovely San Francisco in the future!
