      Test drives create beautiful music

      Test-drives in new Dodge vehicles at Bill Marsh created beautiful music for the Kalkaska High School Band Boosters.

      Kalkaska Band Boosters is tooting the horn of an area car dealership after students are handed a check for $2,500.

      Test-drives in new Dodge vehicles at Bill Marsh created beautiful music for the Kalkaska High School Band Boosters. The school earned $20 for every person who did a short drive in a new Dodge vehicle during the annual Blazer Bash that was held at the start of the school year.

      "With all the financial pressure put on our schools, a program like this becomes an important part of helping students find their passion through music," says Bill Marsh Jr.

      This was the third year Bill Marsh conducted a ride-and-drive fundraiser for the Kalkaska schools. This year's event raised a record amount of money.

      The dealership supplied a variety of Dodge vehicles for the short test drives including the new Charger, Town and Country and Journey.
