Have your kids get a close up look at trucks and help raise money for a good cause.
The seventh annual Touch-a-Truck event, in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of South-West Durham, is all set to roll on Friday, August 23, from 4-8 p.m., outside and around the Tribute Communities Centre.
The free, hands-on event, presented by Campkin’s RV Centre, allows children of all ages to get up close and personal with over 40 vehicles of all shapes and sizes, such as fire trucks and ambulances. There’s interactive displays for the kids and the opportunity for them to learn about the vehicles from the drivers.
“The event is fueled by the community and the fact we’re entering into our seventh year of the Touch-a-Truck event displays the dedication and support our partners are willing to give back to their community,” said William Balfour, assistant general manager and director of marketing and group sales for Spectra. “This year our goal is to surpass the $17,000 donation mark for Big Brothers Big Sisters of South-West Durham and it won’t be possible without numerous companies that participate and assist us in making this event a success each year.”
Those attending the event, run by the Spectra Venue Management, operators of the Tribute Communities Centre, are encouraged to donate to Big Brothers Big Sisters of South-West Durham at their booth located by the BBQ area. Some activities, such as food and face painting may be subject to a cost.
