This year will be the second year I’m organizing a Toys for Tots run down in Southwest Florida. The turnout was good, and we collected a bunch of toys and had a great day.
The event is a social meet and greet/potluck for Toys for tots. This is a family oriented events, bring your kids and family!
The location is planned for Cecil Webb WMA off of I-75 exit 158. Cecil Webb has a lot of scenic trails, and a few fun areas to play in and get off-camber, but mostly all easily accessible to stock trucks. We have a spot picked out by a lake that should accommodate us all. As the area dries up from the rain, I will continue to monitor it for accessibility and water.
If the area is too wet come December, I am looking at another place where we might be able to group camp, about 45 minutes north of Cecil Webb in Venice.
We meet at the front entrance at 10am, those who want to hit trails can do that, we will meet at the lakeside pavilion (26°52’58.4N 81°48’22.4W) around 1230hrs.
The event will be on December 9th 2018, meet up at around 10am.
This event is set up for 4×4 Toyota and Lexus vehicles, FJ Cruisers, Tacoma’s, 4Runners, Landcruiser, GX470, GX460, HiLux etc. Bring your family and friends!
The raffle is simple. You can’t buy a ticket, but each unwrapped toy fo $5-$10 value gets you a ticket.
I’ve gotten tremendous support from the community and industry partners, and we have what looks to be an awesome raffle.
