MAUMEE, OH (Press Release) -

Charlie's Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram helped to raise $1,440 in funding for the Maumee High School football team with the Ram Truck brand's Ram Gridiron Challenge program.  The fundraising event was held on November 1, 2013, during the school's football game. 

"The Ram Truck brand and high school football are intricately linked through their connection to the tough, powerful and rugged American lifestyle," said Mike Dragojevic, Manager, Great Lakes Business Center. "Through the Ram Gridiron Challenge, we are able to give back to football organizations that provide students with a safe and engaging outlet outside of academics."

Participants earned a $20 contribution to the Maumee High School football team by taking a brief test drive in a Ram Truck. Charlie's Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram supplied the vehicles, and volunteers from the dealership were on hand to assist in the fundraising drives.
