Sunrise Estates school fair attracts drivers
The recent education fair at Sunrise Estates Elementary School in Penn Township featured test-drives in new Chrysler minivans to raise money for the school's Parent-Teacher Organization and a variety of activities.
The PTO was the beneficiary of a fundraising initiative, Chrysler Cars 4 Classrooms, in which the automaker donated $10 for each driver at the event who took a test-drive in a Chrysler Pacifica or Pacifica Hybrid minivan. The school could earn up to $2,000 from the test-drives.
Jim Shorkey Chrysler Jeep of North Huntingdon provided the vehicles for the fundraiser.
Chrysler also offered the PTO the chance to earn an additional $1,000 and be entered into a grand prize sweepstakes for up to $7,000, by sharing photos from the fundraiser on a public Facebook account while including the hashtag #SMPacificaContest and tagging @Chrysler by April 3.
A tally of the money raised was not available.
Among other activities at fair was a display of pelts of animals found in Pennsylvania. Westmoreland County Game Warden Michael Papinchak told visitors that most of the furs from coyotes are exported to China and Russia.
