The Junior Service League of Beaufort (JSLB) will host its third annual Touch A Truck fundraiser from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3, on Paris Avenue in downtown Port Royal.
Touch A Truck is a family-friendly event that offers a unique and interactive experience for children of all ages. Children will have the opportunity to see, touch, and safely explore a wide variety of their favorite vehicles that serve our community. Cost of admission is $5 per person.
Touch a Truck will feature many different types of equipment to explore, including a fire truck, ambulance, Humvee, construction vehicles, and even a helicopter. The entertainment area will include a variety of activities, including face painting and music, and food, drinks, and libations will be available for purchase.
“We are so excited to bring back our Touch a Truck fundraiser for the third consecutive year,” JSLB Touch A Truck Chairwoman Kristen O’Neal said. “Supporting and enriching the lives of women, children, and families is our focus in all endeavors, and we think that this event perfectly matches that mission — fun for all ages in a family-friendly environment. And even better — proceeds will all be directed right back into our community through our non-profit grants distributed in May.”
Pets are not allowed. In the case of rain, the event will be postponed to Nov. 17.
“Touch a Truck offers local families a fantastic experience and we are excited to have it as an annual fundraiser for the league,” JSLB President Lindsay Gifford said. “Each year our goal is to make it bigger and better than before. Please help us spread the word throughout our community and help us give back. We are currently seeking sponsors and all proceeds funnel right back into our beloved community. Mark your calendar for a great event.”
