The Motor4Toys event is unique for several reasons. First of all, it is 100% charity. Nobody makes a dime. Secondly, every aspect of this drive is handled within the car community. Southern California car people donate everything from the fundraiser t-shirts, to the fliers, and even the webpage. They also provide the volunteers that keep everything running smoothly. And last, but certainly not least, is the fact that the toy donation event is actually one of the largest free car shows in the world. Several hundred exotics, muscle cars, classics, tuners and racecars show up for the drive. Walking through the Countrywide Insurance lot, you pass entire rows representing car clubs from all over SoCal: WRXes, Vipers, Vettes, Ferraris, Lotuses, VeeDubs, Porsches, Lamborghinis, BMWs, Audis, Mustangs, T-Birds, Shoebox Chevys, you name it, you'll find it here.
Great turnout for a worthwhile cause. Besides the thousands of toys collected at the show, the foundation also raised $7,000 in cash, which Big 5 Sporting Goods was happy to convert into sporting goods and even more toys at a very generous discount. That meant an additional 45 boxes with toys were headed to the West Valley Highway Patrol Office. For those still interested in helping, they still have event T-shirts for sale at www.motor4toys.com. Again, all proceeds will go to buy more toys. The shirts are only $15.00, so please consider helping with a purchase.
