2017 marked the fourteenth year for the Motor 4 Toys event that took place at the Anthem building in Woodland Hills, CA. Originally held in the Village Coffee Roasters parking lot in 2004, Motor 4 Toys had their first charity toy drive car show with over 2,500 toys donated! Over the years, the size of the car show grew, as well as the amount of donations, 5,000, 11,000, 15,000, and last year in 2016 over 45,000 toys were donated during the charity car show with thousands in attendance! Toy donations continue even beyond the car show and to date, the charity has collected over $5 million in toys for children that are less fortunate.
This year broke another record with over 60,000 toys being donated during the world’s largest charity toy drive car show. Dozens of volunteers from the community gathered to help collect and organize the overwhelming amount of toys flooding in. But with a DJ playing holiday songs and the spirit being bright during a clear, sunny December Sunday morning, nothing could stop the smiles being shared by the thousands in attendance. Sponsors such as The Auto Gallery, Superchargers Online, HRE Wheels, Lavaggio, Fast Intentions, and Connected Media Group just to name a few, so there were displays of car, trucks, and parts for any enthusiast.
There’s no doubt that Motor 4 Toys is the not only the world’s largest toy drive car show, but also the most diverse. This show brings out some of the rarest and most custom cars and exotics. One off hot-rods, classic Packards, concept cars, and everything in between. And don’t worry, Santa and his elves were there to make sure every toy collected goes to a good home. Next year will mark the 15th year for Motor 4 Toys, so we’re gearing up to make this one the biggest yet!
