It seems the Holidays start earlier and earlier every year. Take, for instance, the Motor4Toys car meet and toy drive. This year’s drive started extra early, with a special fundraiser brunch last weekend at the exclusive Villa Malibu rental living community in Malibu, California. The actual event and toy drive will take place December 2, 2007, but its organizer, Dustin Troyhan, wanted to kick things off a bit early in order to make a couple of big announcements. Villa Malibu graciously donated their time, facilities, food and drink to help support the cause, typical of the generous support the event garners.

One big announcement was already made at the conclusion of last year’s event: In 2006, the Motor4Toys Foundation gathered more than 10,000 toys for needy children who might not otherwise get anything else for the season. The next announcement was that the goal for 2007 was a full 50% higher. Dusty and the gang are hoping to top 15,000 toys this year. The bulk of those will be collected at the massive car meet on Dec. 2, but many more will be purchased with the cash donations the group receives.

The last major announcement was that the event will coincide with an attempt at the Guinness record for the worlds’ largest Ferrari parade, recently set at the Silverstone Circuit in England. That record was is currently 385 prancing horses. Dusty is confident he can count on at least 400. That is the kind of confidence he has in this community. To truly understand the size of this thing, you have to better understand the Foundation and the people involved.
