Test drives help baseball team fundraise

Test driving a vehicle at Preston Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac can help a local baseball team raise money for its trip to Uganda next month.

“We thought it would be a great opportunity for the team to raise some money and for people to come in and test drive our vehicles,” explained Leigh Heppner, the Preston program co-ordinator.

All that is required is a test drive and answering a few questions.

Until Dec. 22, the Preston car dealership will contribute $25 for each completed test drive to the Langley Baseball All-Stars. The team of 11, 12 and 13-year-olds are going to Uganda next month as part of a Right To Play humanitarian baseball trip.

The Ugandan team was denied entry to the United States for the Little League World Series in August, where they would have played Langley, the Canadian Little League champs.

Right To Play is covering the costs for the players to travel to the African country, but the fundraising is to raise money for the parents to chaperone.

To book an appointment for a test drive, email lheppner@prestongm.com or stop by the dealership.
