Thousands of cars and thousands of toys converge at one of the largest annual auto-themed charity events in the country. Car enthusiasts with a heart have known about it since 2004, when Dustin Troyan—organizer of the well-known Supercar Sunday events held in Woodland Hills, Calif., on the last Sunday of every month—inaugurated a charity car show and toy drive for the benefit of thousands of needy children during the holidays.

In eight years of annual Motor 4 Toys gatherings, almost $2 million in new toys have been distributed to local kids through the volunteer efforts of Troyan and friends. Entrance to the event is free, and organizers ask only that each guest bring at least one new, unwrapped toy with a value of at least $10.

Last year, more than 5,000 cars gathered at the site of this year’s event: the Anthem (Blue Cross) Building in Warner Center, located at 21555 Oxnard St., Woodland Hills. Who drives to the event? Owners of multimillion-dollar collector cars—from historic and current exotics and prewar classics—to hot rods, rat rods, and everything in between. Local sponsors include Auto Gallery, and exhibits from law-enforcement agencies are sure to inform and entertain. The festivities start at 6:30 am and the show ends at noon. (www.motor4toys.com)
