Thanks to you... We Help More Kids Every Year!
In 2004 this event was held at the Village Coffee Roaster parking lot. It was a huge success. The Marines had never picked up more than 300 toys from one location at one time and we collected over 2,500!
We immediately knew that for 2005 we would need a considerably larger venue. Only a few places came to mind when we think "big parking lots" in our area. Countrywide in Westlake Village really stepped up for the 2005 event and we quickly filled up their 1000+ space parking lot, and overflowed into the Farmers huge lot next door! How many toys were collected at the 2005 event? Over 5,000!
For 2006 our ambitious goal was over 10,000 toys. With generous corporate donations and the fantastic support from the motorsports community, we donated over 11,000 toys!
In 2007 you blew us away with an amazing 15,000+ toys!! The generosity of the motorsports community has been an overwhelming success!
