CHOC Toy Drive 2016
Mini Truckers Making a Difference
For the 2nd year in a row, Team Horton Events has been at the helm of the Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) Toy Drive show. This year it took place at the back parking lot of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim stadium under the iconic Big A, and only minutes from CHOC hospital in Orange, California. The show pulled in custom trucks and cars of all types. Many of the car and truck clubs attending make this event a part of their show season.
More than 347 vehicles showed up to show their support for CHOC hospital, which prides itself on the development and implementation of Heart, Cancer, Neuroscience, and Orthopedic procedures specifically for kids. The show was true to its name, requiring a new unwrapped toy from all those in attendance in lieu of an entry fee. They were able to collect over 2500 toys which went to Choc, and a separate truck bed full of toys went to the Ronald McDonald House charity in the local area. These toys are special to the kids to give them a little bit of fun and cheer as they normally have have to spend their holidays staring at hospital walls. The event was also family friendly and featured Santa and Mrs. Clause walking the aisles of customs and posing for pictures. The feeling of the show was extremely upbeat and positive considering it was benefiting kids in need of some cheer around the holidays.
Team Horton has really taken this event to the next level with the amount of preparation and execution needed to pull off a large show such as this, as well as providing a great venue to stretch out in. Team Horton would like to thank their sponsors, Aftermath Designs and Ground Patrol, without them this event would not have been possible.
