The Clinton Athletic Boosters will be once again hosting an event that has gained in popularity since it's inception.

The Booster Club has teamed up with Anderson Ford in Clinton the past several years for their event, "Drive One For Your School". Vice President of the Athletic Boosters, Mike Walker explains they try to hold the event in conjunction with Homecoming Weekend. The event is an easy way to donate money to the school. Walker says you go to Anderson Ford, fill out a form, drive a car for three to five minutes, and $10 has been donated to the Booster Club.

Each year there is also a special car that can be driven that donates an additional $10 to the booster club. Walker says this a great no-strings-attached opportunity to spend ten minutes in a vehicle and make a nice donation to the Booster Club.

Walker says at the end of the day, the Booster Club can walk away with around $8-thousand. This ends up being one of the larger Booster Club fundraisers through the year.

Again the event is October 6, during Clinton High School's Homecoming weekend.
