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.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
