LEEDS – The Third Annual Leeds Cruising for Toys, a cruise-in for a cause, is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 18, 2023, beginning at noon on Parkway Drive in downtown Leeds. This event is open to all cars, trucks and bikes.
Admission is at least one unwrapped toy or donation, and those who bring an unwrapped toy will be entered into a drawing to win $500 cash. Every toy that is donated will grant one ticket toward the chance to win $500 cash. You must be present to win and the more toys you bring, the better chance you have to take home the cash.
This is a toy drive and fundraiser to benefit children and teens through Leeds Outreach to provide Christmas for needy families. A cruise-in, 50-50 and door prizes are planned for an afternoon fun for all ages so bring your favorite vehicle and your family to enjoy a great time together for a great cause.
To pre-register your vehicle in the cruise-in, please contact Chris McCombs at (205) 365-7412 or Christy McCombs at (205) 283-0952.
Vehicles will cruise in on Saturday between the hours of noon and 3 p.m. to drop off their toys and donations on the Parkway between 8th and 9th Streets. From there, the cars, trucks and bikes will line the streets beginning at 8th Street.
The Cruising for Toys event is sponsored and hosted by Leeds Area Chamber of Commerce, City of Leeds and C & C Motor Company. A High resolution flyer is available for you to share and display in your place of business at www.leedsareachamber.com.
