SAMOA will again join EuroSunday's annual Rally4Kids toy drive to benefit the Shriners Hospital for Children. This year's event takes place on Sunday, December 2 at the hospital which is located at 2425 Stockton Boulevard in Sacramento. The event will take place rain, shine, or frost (we have experienced all three weather conditions at past events). But regardless of the weather, it's still fun and for a great cause.
The hospital event runs from 8:00 AM to 12:00 noon. EuroSunday has scheduled an arrival time of 9:00-9:15 AM for our club. Once we get we get there, we will queue up to drive across the stage in front of the hospital, present our unwrapped gifts, and have our photos taken. After the photo, we each proceed to the indoor parking garage, then walk into the hospital for refreshments, socializing, and other event activities.
Please RSVP for this event. We will meet at the McDonald's Restaurant, 5525 Folsom Boulevard, Sacramento at 8:00 AM. We'll have an 8:30 AM drivers meeting and depart at 8:45 for the short drive to the hospital.
Afterwards, for those interested, we will depart the hospital at around 11:45 AM for another very short drive to Suzie Burger (www.suzieburger.com) located at 2820 P Street for lunch. Please indicate in your RSVP if you will join us for lunch.
If you need gift ideas, a list of suggestions by age group has been prepared by the Hospital and is available for download here. More information on the Shriners Hospital for Children and the great work they do is available on their website www.shrinershospitalsforchildren.org.
Let's have another great SAMOA turnout for this fun and worthwhile community event.
