So it feels like it has been forever and a day since I last posted something up here. Things have been crazy around the shop! Phase 1 of our new building is finally complete and now the fun for phases 2 and 3 has began. Not to mention the crazy busy schedule of getting prepared for the second annual Take Your Top Off For Tatas.
Last year we partnered with the Barnhartvale Community Association for the first annual Take Your Top Off For Tatas, a charity off-road event in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Association, and this year we brought it back bigger and better than ever. Last year we saw about 40 vehicles with around 80 people and we raised $2000 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Our goal this year going into the event was to hit the $4000 mark.
This year we decided to add another day to the event and did a dinner/dance and silent auction Saturday July 26th, followed by the trailrides Sunday July 27th. On Sunday we saw around 70 vehicles with about 160 people, which was a huge turn out and we couldn’t have been happier! While the final total isn’t in just yet it looks like we will hit the $5000 mark this blowing our $4000 goal out of the water. We cannot wait to throw the third annual and see how the event grows and expands once again. Thank you to all of our sponsors and of course to everyone who showed up for the day!
