Final 'Random Acts of Fusion' Adventure Comes to Stoneham Ford

Stoneham Ford and Ford dealerships across the nation are banding together to present a spectacular, one-night-only fundraising event on Thursday, Nov. 15 that will benefit local communities, engage consumers in a unique American Idol® experience and offer visitors a personal introduction to the all-new Ford Fusion.

"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.

"Random Acts of Fusion has captured America’s imagination," said Lew Echlin, Fusion Marketing manager. "Go Further with Ford Night is our way of pairing that imagination with reality by offering consumers the chance to give back to their local communities, 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 preregistered guest that visits Stoneham Ford on Nov. 15, the dealership will donate $20 -- up to a total of $2,000 -- to the Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham.

"We all want to be part of something bigger," said Echlin. "This is a great way for our customers to go further with Ford and our dealers, and to give something back to their local communities."
