Junior League of Sacramento Presents: Touch-A-Truck!
Our fourth Touch-a-Truck is in the books! Over 1,200 attendees enjoyed exploring 30 trucks and vehicles at Raley Field. We even hosted two birthday parties at the event this year. Some were large, like a full-size city bus from Sacramento Regional Transit; others, like an ATV from the Yolo County Sheriff’s office, were (relatively) small. We had swanky rides- a Rolls Royce from Sharif Jewelers- and down-and-dirty road construction machines, like a slurry sealer from VSS International. Attendees enjoyed photos atop big tractors, greeting K9 units, exploring ambulances and getting to sit behind the wheel in a police patrol vehicle.
The event kicked off with a quiet hour, free from horns and lights, for families with sensory sensitivities, or just those interested in a quieter experience. After that, the event was in full swing. Thanks to Lincoln Drive to Give, the League received a donation for each adult attendee who test-drove a Lincoln. Despite attendance hampered by poor air quality due to smoke from the Camp Fire, the League grossed over $17,000 from this fundraiser.
