A Queens car dealership is looking to drive thousands of dollars in funds to a local high school.

Ford Lincoln of Queens will host a “Drive Smart for Your School” event at Christ the King High School on Saturday, December 1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Any motorist over the age of 18, with a valid driver’s license, can stop by the Middle Village school, located at 68-02 Metropolitan Avenue, to test drive a Lincoln Ford. For each test drive, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to Christ the King for a total of up to $6,000, officials said.

The offer is limited to one driver per household.

“We’re very excited to do this,” said Michael Naclerio, vice president of Ford Lincoln of Queens. “Being involved with the school is important. With how tough the economy has been, the cost of school has such an impact on people’s pocketbooks. To be able to help with that is a good feeling.”

Margaret Tapalaga, spokesperson for Christ the King High School, said the funds would help boost various afterschool activities, including clubs and extracurriculars.

“It would go a long way in helping students,” she said.
