Local residents are asked to take few minutes Saturday morning to test drive a new Ford vehicle— and help raise $6,000 for three Kane area Boy Scout troops.
The Ford Motor Company and Zook Motors of Kane are sponsoring the “Drive 4 UR Community” fundraiser.
The event will be held from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Save-A-Lot supermarket parking lot on North Fraley Street in Kane. 
The event will be held rain or shine.
For every brief test drive, Ford will donate $20 to the Boy Scouts.
If the maximum of 300 drivers is reached, Ford will donate $6,000 to the local Boy Scouts.
Kane Boy Scout Troops 422 and 427 and Mt. Jewett Boy Scout Troop 410 will share the proceeds from the five-hour fundraiser.
