Melton Sales partners with Zebra Bands

CLAREMORE — Chrysler, Melton Sales and the Claremore Band Boosters are presenting a friendly no sales pressure event to the public from 5 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18  on the south side of the Robson PAC in Claremore.

Complimentary hot dogs, chips and drinks will be provided by the band boosters as a thank you to the community.
Chrysler will donate $20 to the boosters for each test drive.  Everyone in the community is invited to come out and test drive a Dodge Dart, Challenger, Grand Caravan or crew cab truck.  
After enjoying a drive and hot dog, the public has the opportunity to watch the “Pride of Claremore” practice their halftime show.
The Drive for the Kids national program was created in 1993 to help parents raise money for educational and student enrichment programs, such as band.  The program has been used at more than 5,000 school events and has raised more than $2.8 million since it began in 1993.
Donations will help the 6th grade, junior high, high school marching concert and jazz bands, as well as Colorguard, junior high and high school Winterguards.
The Claremore Band Boosters would like to thank Melton Sales for sponsoring the event.
