Ford’s Hurricane Relief Efforts Includes “Texas Is Family” Offer

Charity

At the end of August, Hurricane Harvey devastated the Gulf Coast, especially in the Houston area. Then, it hung around for days, dumping an unbelievable amount of additional rain and causing severe flooding. In the aftermath of this disaster, the country is coming together to help.

Ford’s hurricane relief is coming in multiple ways. Ford and its dealers are committed to raising more than $3.5 million to help rebuild the affected communities and help families get their lives back. Here are some of the ways Ford is giving back:

  • The Ford Motor Company Fund is contributing $500,000 to various support groups in the area including the American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, Team Rubicon, Catholic Charities, Toolbank, and by purchasing four Chariot Transit Vans to aid relief efforts.
  • Ford dealers in the Texas area have already donated $200,000 through the Cowboys-Texas telethon and are committed to raising even more to help dealership employees and other groups.
  • Ford has announced a unique “Texas Is Family” package that allows families who lost a vehicle to get the transportation they need. This package includes below-invoice Ford employee pricing with no payments until 2018. Low Ford Credit APR and lease rates, and a simple application process online.

Here at Courtesy Ford of Sauk City, we hope to see everyone affected by Hurricane Harvey get their lives back to normal as soon as possible. If you want to help, consider making a donation to the Red Cross, or other charity organization.

Have Fun This Fall in Sauk City

Fun In Fall

You have probably already noticed the slight color changes in the leaves and the crisp feel in the air as you head off to work. These are all signs that fall is right around the corner. Fall in Sauk City means beautiful colors, cool days, and lots of fun. Here are some great fall events to add to your calendar.

  • Fall Festival at Durward’s Glen. On Oct. 14 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., you can peruse the booths of local art vendors, enjoy local food, and even get a tractor tour of the historic grounds. This event is free to the public; however, donations are welcome.
  • Crafts & Drafts. If painting a picture and drinking wine isn’t your thing, perhaps drinking beer and making a hearty project is more your taste. On Sept. 22, the River Arts Center will host its monthly night of fun. Here, you can create your own rustic wood sign to hang in your home.
  • Waggin’ Wine Tour. For those who love a good glass of wine, plan on taking the Waggin’ Wine Tasting Tour to benefit the OccuPaws Guide Dogs. The tour takes place Sept. 24 and starts at 11:30 a.m. at the Sauk City Park & Ride. All transportation will be provided. There will also be appetizers, doors prizes, and more.
