Highland Ford recently hosted a Drive 4 UR Community event along with the Pictou County Prostate Cancer Support Group with all funds raised going to the Daffodil Place Capital Campaign for the Lodge that Gives in Halifax. The Lodge that Gives is in the midst of a $15 million fund raising campaign that will allow the lodge to expand from 35 beds to 55 beds. Construction is expected to start in 2014 and right now the Daffodil Campaign is focusing on community contributions to help reach its goal.  The lodge not only offers shelter to people that live more than 50 kms from Halifax and are undergoing cancer treatments, it also has many support services that help patients and their families live with cancer.  The Drive 4 UR Community campaign is a program started by Ford Canada in 2010 and Highland Ford has hosted 15 of these events in the county, raising more than $70,000 for various community groups and programs for schools. This Ford event for the Daffodil Place Campaign raised $2900 and Eric and Linda Barker, owners of Highland Ford, have donated $3,100 which made the total donation $6,000.  Here, on hand for the cheque presentation are, from the left: Murray Gardner, treasurer of the Pictou County Prostate Support Group; Marsha Sobey, provincial chair of the Daffodil Place Campaign; Linda Barker, Eric Barker, owners of Highland Ford; Sheila Scaravelli, community campaign chair for Daffodil Place Campaign and Rick Muise, vice-president of the Pictou County Prostate Cancer Support Group.
