Santa Monica Ford presents “Go Further with Ford Night” this Thursday, Nov. 15 -- a free fundraising event that will benefit the local Meals on Wheels program by engaging locals in the final “Random Acts of Fusion” adventure and offering them a chance to see the all-new 2013 Ford Fusion in person.

"Go Further with Ford Night" is the fun finale to Random Acts of Fusion, the unique transmedia program hosted by Ryan Seacrest that has generated more than 12 million consumer engagements with the Ford Fusion by playing out a story arc through multimedia platforms.

“We all want to be part of something bigger," said Ron Davis of Santa Monica Ford. "Go Further with Ford Night is our way of offering consumers the chance to give back to our community, have a lot of fun, enjoy the final random act – which will test their judging skills to win a unique VIP American Idol experience – and meet the all-new Ford Fusion in person.”

For each person who attends "Go Further with Ford Night" on Thursday from 4-8 p.m., Santa Monica Ford will donate $10 to the local Meals on Wheels program.

While at the dealership, consumers will have a unique opportunity to compete to win a special VIP experience with American Idol.

A computer with a webcam will be set up in the dealership to allow consumers to view a special message from Seacrest and test their judging skills on camera, in true American Idol style. (American Idol premieres in January 2013 on FOX).

Entries will be sent back to Ford’s program headquarters, where a team of experts will evaluate and select one winner to receive an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Hollywood and a unique VIP experience with American Idol.

Consumers 18 years and older who are interested in participating in Go Further with Ford Night may preregister for the event at www.RandomActsofFusion.com and be entered for a chance to win tickets to a live taping of American Idol.

Additionally, registrants at dealerships on Thursday, Nov. 15 will be entered into a prize drawing to win an all-new 2013 Ford Fusion. No purchase is necessary and other restrictions apply. See full official rules online for details.
