PNW TOY RUN!

Taken from Facebook...


NW TOY RUN 2009
6th ANNUAL


December 5, 2009
Time: 12:00 pm
Place: Pacific Raceways
Bring: unopened toy
Organizer: kettlman


TOYS FOR TOTS

YEP. THATS RIGHT! SATURDAY DEC. 5th 12:00pm AT PACIFIC RACEWAYS (Pacific Raceways - Where The Excitement Is Accelerating.....For The Entire Family!). DROP OFF TOYS AND ENJOY THE PEOPLE AND CARS. LAST YEAR WAS AT THE EXTREME. OVER 700 CARS. LOTS OF FUN, AND LOTS OF TOYS. WANNA MAKE THIS EVENT SO LARGE WE WILL HAVE TO HAVE THE TACOMA DOME IN A FEW YEARS. LOOKS LIKE IT'S GETTING THERE SO LETS GET IT GOING!!!

This is going to be a BIG ONE. I want to see everybody there. I mean everybody. This is for the CHILDREN that are less fortunate. I don't care what you bring, a hot wheel or a stuffed animal. Just an unopened toy. This will show the community that People DO CARE. This will be an open forum event. I will post on other forums. Feel free to post on others also. YOU NEED TO BE AT THIS ONE.
LETS MAKE SOME KIDS HAVE A GREAT CHRISTMAS!

nwtoyrun.coml

The web page is not up yet, hopefully soon

Some pics from 08 NW TOYRUN 08 - a set on Flickr



I HOPE TO SEE EVERYBODY , I MEAN EVERYBODY who has ever looked at this page to attend. As you can tell last years was AWESOME and this years will be better!!!!!!!!! This will be on a Saturday and even in the after noon so NO EXCUSES! HA HA HA!!!!


The last few years we have been meeting up and driving as together as we could. Proved to be very difficult and time consuming. This year you can do one of two things, meet as your own groups and roll up together (most do this already) or just show up. Either way you will be part of history. See you there!





I've been doing this for four years now and each year the event has near doubled in size. This year will be the first year that there will be no cruise, as we can no longer fit 700+ cars in the 272nd park and ride. I'm hoping this year will be over 1000 cars will show up. Just think of all the joy you will be bringing to children who wouldn't have had a Christmas if it wasn't for Toys for Tots. Lets show up in some Rangers and help out for a good cause. And of course drool at some sweet PNW sheet metal!!


So who's in?
