Beep! Beep! Vroom! The Junior League of Raleigh is pleased to present our 9th Annual Touch-A-Truck® fundraising event benefiting the youth of Wake County on Saturday, April 20, 2024, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the North Carolina State Highway Patrol Training and Driving Track.

More than 1,500 attendees – families and children of all ages – will join us for this fun and educational event to touch, climb on, and explore construction equipment, emergency response vehicles, mobile machinery, and more.  Children will also have the opportunity to meet and speak with first responders, truck operators, and community helpers – one more way to educate and introduce our youngest citizens with people who build, protect, and serve us in Wake County.

 

BENEFITING CHILDREN AND FAMILIES

 Proceeds from Touch-A-Truck® will benefit the Junior League of Raleigh’s Community Fund, which supports the League’s community programs and partnerships with BackPack Buddies, Brentwood Boys & Girls Club, Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC, Helping Horse, Heritage Park Community Learning Center, Note in the Pocket, AventWest Children’s Mentoring, SAFEchild, StepUp Ministry and The Green Chair Project.

 

JOIN US TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

 We invite you to join us as a 2024 Touch-A-Truck® sponsor to advance our efforts in making a difference in Wake County.  Your support of this event will also allow us to expand our funding resources like our Community Reserve Fund and support more families facing challenges. In addition to sponsor partnerships, we are in need of in-kind donations such as food and beverage for volunteers, media and marketing, pop-up tents, tables and chairs, and water bottles for attendees.
