$100 is better than 0$!

Fundraising was not so successful. We were promised $100 from Jeff Gordon Chevrolet and had several "Come back later's". Britt Motorsports said they could not donate cash but would try to find and alternative way to help us such as the possibility of a motorcycle raffle.
I know this is a tough time financially for everyone, but I also feel that we will never know unless we ask. Maybe next week we can strike paydirt. Feel free to provide any contacts you may know who might be willing to help out out team. Thanks!

Fundraising Tomorrow

Tomorrow some students for next years' class will be going around the Wilmington area looking for sponsors for our fundraising campaign. For the past 9 years, the EV program has been self-funded through sponsorships and donations from area merchants and gracious individuals or local service organizations. We have ambitious goals for "EV10" next year and we will need quite a bit of money to complete our goals.

Hopefully tomorrow will turn out great!

First Blog

This is our first blog.... we are starting out this years class with a bang. We have 10 new members that are ready for what ever is thrown at them.

Yesterday we sold our first ever conversion EV conversion, a 1996 Ford ranger. Hopefully with this money from our truck, we will be able to convert a new truck.

So far, this year looks promising and we hope to keep it that way!
