The Community Event Will Feature Classic Cars, Live Music and Food Trucks
WHAT: Fast Lane 916 and Courageous Connection will host more than 100 classic cars, local food trucks and have live music this holiday season to collect unwrapped gifts and gift cards. Taking place on Sunday, December 3, 2017, donated items will support 1,000 local foster and homeless youth within the Valley High School region. Last year’s inaugural event garnered 500 gifts for youth that were in need.
WHEN: Sunday, December 3, 2017 from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
WHERE: Valley High School, 6300 Ehrhardt Avenue, Sacramento, CA 95823
WHO: Fast Lane 916 and Courageous Connection are hosting the event at Valley High School.
WHY: Often times, foster and homeless youth do not have the opportunity to celebrate the holiday seasons due to circumstances beyond their control. The Toy Drive and Car Show encourages the community to come enjoy the event while also helping local youth to receive gifts during this holiday season.
