Postpartum Education for Parents’ 5th Annual Touch-A-Truck Event Sunday, September 20, 2015

SANTA BARBARA, CA - September 15, 2015. Postpartum Education for Parents’ (PEP) 5th Annual Touch-A-Truck event will be held on Sunday, September 20, 2015, from 9:30am-2:30pm, at the West Campus parking lots of Santa Barbara City College (SBCC). Touch-A-Truck is an affordable and unique family community event where kids of all ages have the opportunity to see, touch, get behind the wheel, honk horns, learn about and safely explore trucks, construction equipment and public safety vehicles. Meet the men and women who protect, serve, work and build in our community. Refreshments and food will be available for purchase. The event also includes community vendors and exhibitors on “Truck Alley” and a “Fun Zone” with bounce houses, face painters and activities for toddlers.

Tickets for the event are now available for purchase at the Touch-A-Truck website: Admission is $20 per family and $5 per individual.

Touch-A-Truck is PEP’s annual fundraiser. All proceeds from the event go to support PEP’s services to the community. Touch-A-Truck is a success because of the continued support of our community sponsors and truck providers. So many make this event and its impact possible.

Sponsorship Opportunities Still Available:

Big Wheel Sponsorship:
PEP is grateful for the community support that has sustained our organization since 1977. Much of our support comes from families who have been helped by our services. The Big Wheel Sponsor is an opportunity to make a donation of support that will be recognized at Touch-A-Truck. Donate $100 or more to PEP for Touch-A-Truck and become a Big Wheel Sponsor. A customized “Big Wheel” with your name (or family’s name) will be displayed at the event. You receive a family admission ticket and an event merchandise package. Plus, with your Big Wheel Sponsorship, PEP will provide a family admission ticket to a deserving family who would not otherwise be able to attend the event. This is a unique opportunity to support PEP and directly give to a family in our community. Become a Big Wheel Sponsor today!
Adopt a Family:
So many families keep coming back to Touch-A-Truck every year because it is so much fun! Do you want to share this experience with a family that would not otherwise be able to afford attending Touch-A-Truck? For an additional $20 donation, PEP will provide a family admission ticket to a family in need. PLUS with every five Adopt-A-Family donations, PEP will provide an additional family admission ticket to a family in need. This opportunity is made in part with the help of our partnering community resources. We thank you!
