The Junior Service League of Beaufort (JSLB) will host its 6th annual Touch-a-Truck fundraiser on Saturday, October 30th, 2021 at the Beaufort Town Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a designated Quiet Hour from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. for those sensitive to noise. Cost of admission is $5 per person (FREE for children under 18 months old).
Touch-a-Truck is a family event that offers a unique and interactive experience for
children of all ages. Children will have the opportunity to see, touch, and safely explore their favorite vehicles
that serve our community.
Our event will feature many different types of equipment to explore, including a fire truck, a patrol car, a SWAT
car, stormwater vehicles, monster truck, construction vehicles, and even a helicopter!
The entertainment area, and the event at large will reflect COVID protocols, but we want the community to know that we are keeping the safety of everyone forefront in our planning.
And to round out the experience, enjoy music and fabulous food, drinks, and libations available for purchase. Tons of fun for the whole family!
“We are so excited to return to the Beaufort Town Center for a spooktacular Touch-a-Truck event this year! As
JSLB members, we value enrichment in the lives of children and families, which is why it is so important for us
to bring this unique event to Beaufort.
New this year is the designated Quiet Hour from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. for members of our community who may be sensitive to noise and lights. During this hour, we will do our best to eliminate music, sirens, lights, etc. to ensure a comfortable experience for everyone. We are working hard to put on yet another safe, fun-filled event that will help us raise money that goes right back into our community through non-profit grants given out in May” said JSLB Touch-a-Truck Chairwoman Kelly Troccoli.
• In the case of rain, the event will be postponed to November 6th, 2021.
• Pets will not be allowed at the event.
“Touch a Truck offers families a fantastic experience and we are excited to continue our annual fall fundraiser
for the league. We are placing priority on sanitization and safety protocols for the safety of everyone! We are
currently seeking sponsors. Please help us spread the word throughout our community and help us give back.
Not only will the event be fun and educational, but proceeds from our event funnel right back into our beloved
community. Mark your calendar for a great event!” said JSLB Becky Grothe.
