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.

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.

The high-wattage talent competition returns for a 12th season on Fox in January.
