Issaquah Schools Foundation benefit adds Ford charity, ‘American Idol’ glitz
November 13, 2012
Evergreen Ford plans to combine “American Idol” and automobiles to benefit the Issaquah Schools Foundation at a Nov. 15 fundraiser.
The local Ford dealership named the foundation as the beneficiary in the nationwide Go Further with Ford promotion. For each attendee 18 and older at the dealership showroom, Evergreen Ford plans to donate $20 to the foundation, up to a total of $1,000.
Go Further with Ford attendees can join hourly prize drawings, listen to live music, and sample appetizers, beer and wine.

Go Further with Ford Night
Proceeds from the event go to the foundation’s All in for Kids Annual Fund Campaign. The event at Evergreen Ford coincides with students calling Issaquah School District parents to solicit donations for the campaign.
Go Further with Ford Night also marks the finale to “Random Acts of Fusion,” a multimedia documentary hosted by “American Idol” personality Ryan Seacrest. The finale engages consumers in the last “Random Acts of Fusion” adventure.
“Random Acts of Fusion” highlights the 2013 Ford Fusion.
Go Further with Ford attendees can compete to win a special VIP “American Idol” experience.
Organizers plan to set up a webcam-equipped computer inside the dealership, and allow attendees to view a message from Seacrest and test their judging skills on camera.
Entries get sent to Ford’s program headquarters, and a team of experts plans to select a winner to receive a trip for two to Hollywood and the VIP “American Idol” experience.
The high-wattage talent competition returns for a 12th season on Fox in January.
