Toy run cruises to Lone Butte for show ‘n shine

Annual Toy Run in 100 Mile House slated for Sept. 16

Everything is in gear for a successful 12th Annual Toy Run, scheduled for Sept. 16 in 100 Mile House.

The event kicks off with a scenic drive that takes off at 11 a.m. from the A&W parking lot. Everyone who participates is encouraged to donate a new toy or cash, which will go to the 100 Mile House Food Bank Society.

Co-ordinators, Phil Doddridge and Steve Anderson will be accepting the donations prior to the ride, 10-10:45 a.m.

Doddridge says he expects up to 100 motorcycles and many classic cars to participate in the ride, which will end in a show ‘n shine at the Iron Horse Pub in Lone Butte.

The pub has agreed to donate lunch items, which can be purchased with a cash donation. Proceeds will be given to the food bank.

The show will run from noon to 1 p.m.
