Houston Performance Driving is stepping up to the plate this holiday season and will be collecting toys for the kids @ MD Anderson Cancer Treatment Hospital. We the HPD Staff formally ask everyone* and anyone* that reads this forum to please get involved in this toy drive. These kids are fighting everyday to stay strong and focused while receiving their treatments. Someone of these kids are not from Houston and have very little to no family here while at the hospital. These families have stretched their finances to the limits in getting their children the best medical care possible. More than anything these parents want to give them the best Christmas possible. Houston Performance Driving is asking the Import and Domestic forums and clubs to join together for a wonderful cause.
"The only way for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing."


I. Mission Statement:

- It is our goal here at HPD to make the biggest impact possible for these kids at MD Anderson. With your help we can make some very sick kids have a wonderful Christmas, because for the generosity of the people that visit Houston Performance Driving. Together with the other car clubs/forums we can give these kids the support and love they need to continue the fight. With in the goal set forth. We are truly determined to collect and donated more toys then any organization in Houston. Again we ask for for all forums and clubs to support this endeavor!

II. Toy Drive Outline:

- Saturday December 12th will be the "Night Meet" @ Frank-N-Steins Bar and Grill in Katy. Starting at 7PM and ending at 12AM. This will be the first collection point for the toy drive. This location is the same location used for TX2K Events. There are 2 lots that will be used.

- Sunday December 13th will the "Cruising for Kids" drive down to Galveston Island. Otherwise known has the South Coast Cruise. There will be 3 collection points on this cruise. (1) North Side rally point. (2) South Side rally point. (3) Galveston (*Cherry Hill*) rally point. HPD will have 2-3 collection trucks following the cruise. Please fill them to the top with toys!

- There will also be a late lunch/early dinner at Salas's Mexican and Seafood on The Seawall after the collection is over at Cherry Hill.
This will also be our back up lot in case Galveston PD pushes us off the hill. Salas's is connected to the Academy Parking lot which can hold all of us. However, we are hoping that Galveston PD will have a open-mind with us having a toy drive for MD Anderson.

- Once on Seawall BLVD keep heading NORTH all the way to Cherry Hill.

*Pay System for Toll Bridge* = The Cruise Leader will pay for the first 10 cars = $20.......the car that is #11 in line will need to get out and collect $2.00 from the next 9 rides = $20.00. Once the person collects their $20.00 you need to let the next person in the chain know they have to get out and collect $18.00 + your* $2.00 = $20.00....it keeps going until we the end of the line. FYI: It will only take about 15-20 minutes to get off the bridge with +200 rides.
