4th Annual Toys For Tots race in Porter TX

4th Annual Toys For Tots race in Porter TX

Mikes Hobby Shop in Porter, Tx, home of the 2010 IFMAR 200mm Worlds, hosted their 4th Annual Toys For Tots Race ending up with 116 entries. Again, a fantastic day (and night!) of racing, with everyone in good spirits as they got started at 3PM. Phil W. and Jeremy Cupps ran a super-smooth program with nearly no hitches and even though they took no breaks between rounds, and only about a 30 minute break before the mains, they were still there until nearly 3am. Estimates put the total of toys donated at about 123 and if you average them at $10/each (many were worth more), then that was close to $1230 worth of toys donated, for a grand total of over $2000 in Toys and Cash. The firemen that picked up the toys said this was far-and-away the largest haul they’d had this season, so congrats to everyone involved.
