What an exciting day we had at the 2nd annual Touch a Truck fundraiser for Explorium!
This year, we added a few new vehicles, activities, and food trucks to our repertoire. The outcome was bigger than we could have imagined. Our clickers stopped working at about 4,000 people, so we can only assume that there were over 4,000 people in attendance. This is almost DOUBLE what we had last year! And the fundraising total was double at $11,000! Thank you, Denton!
The purpose of Touch a Truck is two-fold. Of course we want to raise money, and we certainly did! Secondly, Touch a Truck provides an opportunity to expose children of all ages to career paths and lifelong hobbies, as well as for smaller children to explore and learn using all their senses.
One fun thing we added this year was a raffle for some amazing John Deere toys donated by AGL constructors. We also added a signature Touch a Truck t-shirt that was so popular we sold out of the kids’ sizes. (Let us know if you want one, and we’ll make it happen!)
