It's that time of year again! The Wheelers 4 Wishes group is hosting the 10th annual Christmas toy drive. This event is in conjunction with the Toy Run benefitting the Bay Area USMC Toys for Tots.
Date: Saturday, December 11, 2010
Place: Pasadena Rodeo/Fairgrounds - Red Bluff Rd. @ Fairmont Pkwy. (Directions: http://www.wheelers4wishes.org/new/directions.htm
Time: We will be out there from 8 am till dark.
Entry: One new unwrapped toy and one non perishable food item OR $10 donation per adult. Kids 12 and under are free.
This year will be a "Meet and Greet" format. In the 10 years we have hosted this event, it has gradually evolved more and more each year into an off-road style setting...with the car crunch, RTI and now an off-road coarse. To make things less hectic, we have decided to discontinue the Show N Shine portion of the event, which will give us more time for the other events that will be happening throughout the day. Starting this year, you will be able to park next to your friends and fellow club members as we will not have the Show N Shine and no need to make participants park in their designated classes. So bring your lawn chairs and the whole family, and have a great time helping others at Christmas.
RTI Ramp: AAE Customs of Bacliff is providing the ramp and scoring. There will be a small donation required and ALL of the money goes to Toys for Tots.
Obstacle Course: This year we will have a "rock crawl" course instead of the car crush. We plan on this being an all day activity and again, there will be a small donation to play on the rocks.
The rodeo arena will have lots of activities for the kids this year. Including a rock wall, bungee jump, crafts, a petting zoo, Santa and his elves.
Campbell Hall will have lots of vendors, live music, live and silent auctions, and several raffles.
The Bay Area VW Club will be having their car show and we have several race cars lined up to come out.
Weather permitting, the Army National Guard will be flying in the Apache helicopter.
All the money collected will be used to purchase toys for children in need at Christmas. The food items collected will be donated to a local church food bank. We would like this 10th annual event to be our largest ever. Come on out and help us realize our dream!
