FREE Community Event - Presented by Campkin's RV Centre
Spectra Venue Management, operators of the Tribute Communities Centre, is excited to announce the seventh annual Touch-a-Truck event presented by Campkin's RV Centre on Friday, August 23rd, 2019 from 4pm to 8pm in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of South-West Durham. This free community event will be hosted outside and around the Tribute Communities Centre and is a fun, hands on event that allows children of all ages to get up close and personal with more than 40 vehicles of all shapes and sizes. Children will love the interactive displays and the opportunity to learn about the vehicles from the drivers.
“This event is fueled by the community and the fact we’re entering into our seventh year of the Touch-a-Truck event displays the dedication and support that our partners are willing to give back to their community,” said William Balfour, Assistant General Manager and Director of Marketing & Group Sales for Spectra. “This year our goal is to surpass the $17,000 donation mark for Big Brothers Big Sisters of South-West Durham and it won’t be possible without the numerous companies that participate and assist us in making this event a success each year.”
Although the event is free for the community to attend, Spectra encourages all attendees to donate what they can afford to Big Brothers Big Sisters of South-West Durham during the event at their booth located by the BBQ area. This year’s event will again satisfy attendee’s taste buds as the Spectra team fires up the grill to provide a charity BBQ for attendees. Touch-a-Truck is a free event to enter, however certain activities may be subject to a cost such as face painting, BBQ, etc.
