Clients learn about Earth Day underneath La Posada’s carport. The new pavilion would hold such educational activities in the future.
In less than two weeks, you will have the exciting opportunity to help La Posada Providencia build a brand new pavilion for its clients, and all you have to do is test drive a car!
No purchase or donation will be necessary to help us achieve our goal.
That’s because the Harlingen Sunburst Rotary Club and Boggus Ford Harlingen have partnered to support the construction of a pavilion for La Posada with a fun and exciting fundraiser: The Drive 4UR Community Car Show and Car Test Drive.
On Saturday, July 11, there will be a car show where individuals will have the opportunity to take a free test-drive of Boggus Ford’s vehicles. The Ford Motor Company will donate $20 for each test-drive. Three hundred drivers will be needed to meet the $6,000 donation goal.
Drive 4UR Community will feature an antique, collectible, 1990s-and-older car show; live music; and complimentary coffee and donuts.
The planned pavilion will be used by staff, clients and volunteers for outdoor classes, performances and other outdoor activities.
“This is your opportunity to help improve our shelter and strengthen our community by doing nothing but drive a car,” said Alma Rock, La Posada’s development coordinator. “Giving back has never been so easy.”
When: Saturday, July 11, 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Where: Treasure Hills Presbyterian Church large parking lots – 2120 Ed Carey Dr (located next to Valley Baptist Hospital area and across from the Heart Clinic).
FREE Community event: No purchase is necessary. Drivers must be 18 years of age or older with a valid Driver’s License and valid automobile insurance. Limit one donation per household.
“We invite the San Benito, Harlingen, and Valley-wide citizens to take the wheel, support our shelter, and show our community how great things happen when we all come together,” said La Posada’s Program Director Sister Zita Telkamp, CDP.
La Posada Providencia, founded and sponsored by the Sisters of Divine Providence, is a ministry for people in crisis from around the world, who are seeking legal refuge in this country. The shelter staff provides a safe and welcoming home; mentors to promote self-sufficiency and cultural integration; and imparts values which witness God’s Providence in our world.
