Drive 4UR Community

(Harlingen, Texas) La Posada Providencia wants to extend its gratitude to two Harlingen organizations who have come together to help support our shelter.

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 in which 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.

“It is moving to see these two civic and business groups from Harlingen come together to benefit our community,” said La Posada Program Director Sister Zita Telkamp, CDP. “Events like these prove how much the Valley-wide community cares about its neighbors and the clients we serve.”

When: Saturday, July 11, 8:30 am – 4 pm

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,” Sister Zita said.
