DRIVE THRU
8TH ANNUAL TOUCH-A-TRUCK
NOV. 7, 2020
9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
DUE TO COVID-19 AND SOCIAL DISTANCING ADHERENCE, THE 8TH ANNUAL TOUCH-A-TRUCK WILL BE DRIVE THRU ONLY. THE SAFETY OF OUR FAMILY ATTENDEES IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY AND IN ORDER TO DELIVER A SAFE EVENT, THIS YEAR’S TOUCH-A-TRUCK WILL TAKE PLACE IN A DRIVE THRU FORMAT. FOR ONE YEAR ONLY, WE NEED TO TAKE THE “TOUCH” OUT OF TOUCH-A-TRUCK.

 

WHAT:   Hosted by the Junior League Phoenix, the 8th Annual Touch-A-Truck event is a family-friendly event that offers children a unique opportunity to explore a variety of machinery. Our 2020 Drive Thru experience will allow children to see and learn about their favorite big trucks and heavy machinery from the safety of your vehicle. Vehicles on display routinely include construction trucks, emergency responders, tractor trailers, utility trucks and a helicopter.

WHO:   This is a family-friendly event.

*We are pleased to be offering a “horns-free hour” from 9:00am-10:00am for children with special needs and sensitive ears. During the horns-free hour, attendees will be able to enjoy the event without horn honking or disruptive noises.

WHY:  The Junior League of Phoenix is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.  All proceeds from Touch-A-Truck benefit local community programs and training sponsored by The Junior League of Phoenix.  For more information on these programs, visit the “Community Impact” page.

SPONSORSHIP:   Details on the Touch-A-Truck Sponsorship Packet will be available here soon.
