14th Annual Scooter Toy Run, Sunday, December 12th

See you 10:30 am Sunday December 12th at Vespa Motorsport Rain or Shine!

Our 14th Annual Scooter Toy Run is Sunday, December 12th. If it’s raining we’ll still meet at 10:30 am, but we will decide about the ride when the time comes. If the weather is nice, then we’ll scoot in one massive group to the San Diego Center for Children. Their is NO Wacky Wonky Wonderland or any event at the center, but have a toy drop-off setup and cookies.

To participate, please bring at least one unwrapped toy, see the center’s wish-list for gift suggestions and approved toys. Vespa Motorsport also has an official San Diego Center for Children Donation Station set-up at our shop for anyone who may like to bring by some toys to drop off beforehand. Please stop by anytime between now and December 12th.

Lots of awesome prizes donated by our favorite vendors: Western Powersports, Parts Unlimited, and more.. 
Must be present to win.

One FREE raffle ticket will be given for each toy you bring (maximum of 5 tickets per person, we will NOT be selling raffle tickets, so this is the only way to win). The ride will leave right after the raffle and arrive at the Center around noon. If it is raining we will get the toys to the center with our shop van, hey the kids still need toys rain or shine.

Founded in 1887, the San Diego Center for Children is the oldest non-profit organization in the San Diego.  It’s a live-in treatment center for children, ages 6-18, that provides educational services, support, and guidance for these less than fortunate youths.  The gifts we deliver and time we spend at the center bring an immeasurable amount of joy to these kids. For more info on the Center click here.

We will have a special AFTER PARTY at Ballast Point Home Brew Mart  for beers, food, or just hangout (5401 Linda Vista Rd #406, San Diego). This is just a casual hangout and not a sponsored event from the shop, so bring a few bucks if you would like to partake (around 12:30pm).
