Driving Your Child's Future Forward

Heritage Education Funds and Summit Ford Present Monica Di Franco With A Brand New Set Of Wheels

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 -- Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this Press Release.

For Monica Di Franco, morning commutes just got a whole lot smoother. She is the proud winner of a 2014 Ford Focus, courtesy of Heritage Education Funds Inc. ("Heritage"), a leading Canadian provider of group Registered Education Saving Plans ("RESPs") and Summit Ford, a Woodbridge-based Canadian owned and operated Ford car dealership.

The competition was fierce, but Monica succeeded in nabbing the checkered flag. "We're looking forward to taking it for a weekend getaway up north," she beamed. "It's roomy, fuel-efficient and looks very sporty - I even got to choose the colour!"

Monica was one of thousands of participants in the Driving Your Child's Future Forward car giveaway, a contest sponsored by both Heritage and Summit to raise awareness of the rapidly increasing costs of education. Both Jason R.B. Maguire, president of Heritage Education Funds, and Scott Vickers, president of Summit Ford, were on hand at the Summit Ford dealership to present the Di Franco family with their new vehicle and offer their heartfelt congratulations, with Scott adding: "We love giving back to the community, and on behalf of all of us at Summit Ford we would like to thank everyone who entered the contest."

The Driving Your Child's Future Forward car contest was open to public entries from across Canada. Through this giveaway, Heritage Education Funds was able to raise awareness about the rapidly increasing costs of tuition and helped inform the public about RESPs and what they can offer parents and families. This is something Monica, as a long-time Heritage subscriber, is well-versed in: "As a young family, our focus was on securing our kids' education and Heritage offered the right and flexible investment for us," she said. "I lost my job recently, and looking back, I'm truly grateful for investing in the RESP with Heritage, as without it, paying for my son's university education would be a challenge." Heritage's president agreed: "It can be really tough these days for parents to afford post-secondary education for their children," said Jason. "Organizations like ours (Heritage) exist to help ease the financial burden for families. We would like to congratulate the Di Francos on their win and we wish them much success in the future."

Following the presentation, with her hands firmly on the wheel and her sights set on the road ahead, Monica was all smiles: "A BIG Thank You to Heritage and Ford for giving me such a wonderful prize that truly benefits my entire family."

The colour she picked was bright blue, by the way.
