    Default Toys for Tots drive 2014

    I am working to organize the 3rd annual Toys for Tots drive. We had a phenomenal event last year and a great one the year before. My goal for this year is 1000 toys. Trust me when I say for an event that size it is going to take a lot of work and a substantial parking lot. It is making it a little harder to find a place to host it. We may have to deal with permits and insurance. I do not want to spend that money there. I want it to go to the kids. I do not have any information to pass along yet. Just wanted you guys to know I am working on it. As soon as I have any information I will let you know. For those of you asking on FB you can relay your questions through Jason Lee. He is in direct contact with me on this event.

    Update:
    Bring a new unwrapped toy (or toys) and come hang out with us at The Pig Bar n Grill. If you have a cool ride, bring it! If you don't have a cool ride, bring a toy and come hang out anyway. The Pig Bar N Grill has a 5 acre fenced off parking lot that will be dedicated to this show. There will be a live band. The food is great, The beer is cold, the prices are good and they can serve in the parking lot. I can not say who yet but there will be several TV personalities in attendance. This is a great venue and they are thrilled to have us. The Cowboys have a bye that weekend so no excuses. Mark your calendars for the afternoon of Sunday November 16th, 2014. I will post more details as I get them confirmed but the date and location are set in stone at this point. Start spreading the word. We made a difference last year. Let's help even more kiddos this year.

    The main purpose of this event it to collect toys for Toys for Tots. This is not a judged event and there are no awards. No registration required. I know this will come up so I will address it now, at the owner's request, No Pets.

    Hope to see you there!!!
    Matt


    Update 10/2/14:
    The band is booked. This kid is an amazing guitarist. They have a 3 piece family band (two brothers and the dad). They cover anything from classic rock to current hits. Check him out!!!

    I am working diligently on this. I am in communication with Toys for Tots. I need to finalize a couple of details on what I believe will be a great venue. This should shape up to be another great event. I can't post details on date or location yet but I hope be able to share those details by early next week.

    The show looks like it is going to be a good one. Jordan, Tom & Sue from Misfits Garage / Fast & Loud will be in attendance. We have some cool rides lined up to attend and a great band. This cold front may hinder attendance a little but we are not going to let a little cold keep us from collecting toys. Come on Sunday!!!!

    The weather hurt us a little this year. We still managed to collect 220 toys and ~$300 cash.

    Here is a second chance to donate toys for those of you that did not make it out on Sunday. Blackie and I will be a Keller's on Northwest Hwy from 2:00 to 5:00 this coming Sunday November 23rd to collect toys again. I will have a trailer with me for the toys. Spread the word!!!
