Main Content

McMullan Motors of Hattiesburg will host a special Chrysler Cars 4 Classrooms fundraiser for The Children’s Center for Communication and Development at USM as part of the center’s Classic I CAN! 10K, 5K, and 1-mile fun run on Saturday, Feb. 17. The fundraiser will be held from 8 a.m. – noon.

During the Chrysler Cars 4 Classrooms event, parents and friends of The Children’s Center, and race participants and spectators, will have the opportunity to earn a $10 contribution, up to $2,000, for the center by taking a brief test drive in the all-new Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid – the only hybrid minivan available on the market.

Any licensed driver, age 18 or older, may drive and earn $10 on the school’s behalf. McMullan Motors will provide vehicles and staff to assist drivers with fundraising test drives and any questions they may have.

The Chrysler brand will also offer The Children’s Center a chance to earn an additional $1,000 and be entered into a grand prize sweepstakes for up to $7,000 in additional funding, by simply sharing photos from the event on a public Facebook account within one week of the fundraiser’s date, and incorporating the provided customized hashtag, #CCPacificaContest for The Children’s Center and tagging @Chrysler. The contest ends Feb. 24.

Additionally, all test drive participants will be entered into the 2017 FCA US National Sweepstakes at registration, for a chance to win $45,000 towards an eligible vehicle from any one of the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep®, Ram Truck and FIAT brands. 

In 2017, the Chrysler brand celebrates 25 years of commitment to its local schools and families. Since 1993, the brand helped to raise over 7 million dollars through fundraising test drives. For more information, visit www.cars4classrooms.com
