Toy Drive Featured at 22nd Autumn Get-Together

October 31, 2011

The Goodguys Rod & Custom Association has teamed with the Livermore/Pleasanton Fire Department to conduct a “Toys for Tots” toy drop on Saturday, November 12th at the upcoming Goodguys 22nd Autumn Get-Together which runs November 12 & 13 at the Fairgrounds in Pleasanton. Attendees who bring a new, unwrapped toy will receive a coupon for $2.00 off general admission. All toys collected will be distributed as holiday gifts to needy children in the local community.

The 22nd Autumn Get-Together features over 2,500 souped up American cars of all years, makes and models sprawled throughout the fairgrounds. Highlighting the event will be a display featuring two generations of the Batmobile, an indoor truck exhibit featuring “The Patriot” Monster Truck and more specialty vehicles. On Sunday, Goodguys, J Rockcliff Realtors and CBS5 will give away a 1969 Chevelle muscle car. Attendees can stop by the “Live 105” booth Saturday or Sunday to register to win the Chevelle. Other event attractions include a Goodguys AutoCross (electronically timed vehicle agility course), a swap meet and car corral, vendor exhibits, a pin striper’s “brush bash” featuring pin stripe artists and other activities of automotive interest.

The 22nd Autumn Get-Together is the final Goodguys event of the 2011 season and event organizers wanted to reach out to the Tri-Valley community with the Toys for Tots toy drop. “We felt our Autumn Get-Together would be a great opportunity to help some needy children and kick off the holiday season,” said company president Marc Meadors. “With the help of our friends at the fire dept, we look to have a successful event and bring some smiles to the little ones. I urge all attendees to bring a toy and make someone’s holiday a little brighter.”
