Hello Fellow FIAT 500 owners! This is our first Toys for Tots event and it just so happens to fall on the weekend immediately following LA Auto (where we hope you will come and visit our booth in Kentia Hall!).
The event will kick off at our house (500 MADNESS) in the morning where we will host coffee, donuts, cider and tea *Our registers will be closed during this event, this is strictly to benefit the kids!*. We will then go for a fun run around town and end up at Fuddrucker’s for lunch where we will have designated parking for our FIAT 500s. Lunch or the run is not mandatory as this event is completely up to the driver and co-pilot. Fuddrucker’s is well known for their hamburgers and veggie-burgers, and are very affordable, check them out online at www.fuddruckers.com/
Regarding the Toys for Tots Event, here are the details:
Who benefits from the donated toys- CHPs for Kids!
KCRA 3 and the CHP distribute the toys to hospitalized and disadvantaged children through UC Davis Children’s Hospital, Mercy Hospital, Shriner’s Hospital, the Salvation Army, WEAVE, Head Start, Boys & Girls Club, Operation Rudolph, and other community service organizations.
What types of donations are needed?
Child-safe and educational toys brighten the holidays for babies and toddlers. Young children like board games, puzzles, crayons and coloring book sets, craft kits and building sets, Sports equipment (soccer, basketball and footballs) and hand-held video games work well for pre-teens. Teenagers (who are sometimes overlooked during toy drives) enjoy walkman radios and CD players, movie passes, phone calling cards, and gift certificates to clothing, variety, book and music stores.
Remember, 500 MADNESS will host coffee, tea, cider, donuts and you? Show your holiday spirit by bringing a new unwrapped toy for a little one this holiday!
