Runner Up in Best of Nevada County

The Union today published their yearly announcement of “Nevada County’s Best of 2011”. Coming in as ‘Runner Up’ in the category of “Best Charitable Event of the Year” was, wait… Nevada County Food and Toy Run!

Yes, I thought the fix might have been in, but was assured by Union Publisher, Jeff Ackerman, that all was legit! We don’t know who to thank, except you, who have supported us and have ridden in the Run. Today, runner up… tomorrow, the World!
Thanks again to everyone who voted for us ~

official resolution document
Senator LaMalfa (shown left below) presented Thom Staser, CEO and Founder of the Nevada County Food & Toy Run, with a Senate Resolution to commemorate the Toy Run’s 20th Anniversary.  For the last 20 years the Nevada County Food and Toy Run has been able to provide donated food and gifts to families in need during the Christmas season.

“It is great to see organizations like the Nevada County Food & Toy Run spread holiday cheer by taking part in the gift of giving,” Senator LaMalfa stated.

This year the Toy Run will be taking place on Saturday, December 10th at noon. As tradition, motorcyclists will ride from the Eric Rood Building to the Nevada County Fairgrounds to deliver toys for children and food for families.

I hope the Food & Toy Run will continue to touch the lives of those in need for another 20 years, concluded LaMalfa.
