August Luxury Motorcars annual Cars & Toys Charity Toy Drive sees big support

Toy Drive a big success

August Luxury Motorcars sixth annual Cars & Toys Charity Toy Drive was a huge success.

The fundraiser took place on Sunday, Dec. 5 and saw close to 700 people walk through the doors and donate toys for those in need.

"It was quite spectacular we had quite a few more people than we thought. We are always astonished by the community and how giving they are so it is quite cool," president Matt August said.

Guests were able to walk through a supercar winter wonderland, take pictures with Santa and enjoy arts and crafts by the fire.

"It was quite neat because it was the first event we held in our new space which is six times larger than the old space. It was nice we were able to accommodate that many people," August added.

Toys donated this year are going to Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon, JoeAnna’s House, and Mamas for Mamas.

"There will definitely be a 7th annual [Cars & Toys Charity Toy Drive] next year," August said.
