Toys for Tots at MADNESS

Boys and Girls, you know the drill because it's that time of the year!!!

This is our annual Toys for Tots event and with your help it is our mission to make it bigger and better EVERY year!

As always, the event will kick off at the house of MADNESS in the morning where we will will host coffee, donuts, cider and tea. We will then go for a fun run and end with lunch where we will have designated parking for our cars. Lunch or the run is not mandatory as this event is completely up to the driver and co-pilot.

Our registers will be closed that day. The event is for the kids and you. No sales, no installs, just a fun time with fellow 500 owners.

Regarding the Toys for Tots Event, here are the details:

Who benefits from the donated toys- CHPs for Kids!
KCRA 3 and the CHP distribute the toys to hospitalized and disadvantaged children through UC Davis Children's Hospital, Mercy Hospital, Shriner's Hospital, the Salvation Army, WEAVE, Head Start, Boys & Girls Club, Operation Rudolph, and other community service organizations.
What types of donations are needed?
Child-safe and educational toys brighten the holidays for babies and toddlers. Young children like board games, puzzles, crayons and coloring book sets, craft kits and building sets, Sports equipment (soccer, basketball and footballs) and hand-held video games work well for pre-teens. Teenagers (who are sometimes overlooked during toy drives) enjoy walkman radios and CD players, movie passes, phone calling cards, and gift certificates to clothing, variety, book and music stores.

Remember, 500 MADNESS will host coffee, tea, cider, donuts and you? Show your FIAT spirit by bringing a new unwrapped toy for a little one this holiday.

    Glad I came down and dropped off the toy and got to meet new Fiat lovers. Hoping the event grows and was interested to hear that the Smarts might joint us next year.

    I wish I could have stayed for the run but I had a design project to complete for presentation today.

    I'm hoping more show. When I owned a MINI Cooper these type events attracted 30-50 easily so I'm hoping as there are more Fiats this to will happen. See you on Saturday.

      As time goes by you will see higher and higher numbers. We just formed this group and for being formed for less then 2 weeks this is looking like a great turnout. It will be fun and as the new year kicks off expect more and more events to come.

      We just formed this group due to many requests from our fellow FIAT Owners. The goal is to grow this group and have fellow drivers organize events all over the country.... So spread the word and encourage others to join.
