We're BACK!!!! And we started it with a BANG!

We here at TLH have been a very busy group of people.  From car shows to charity events to anime conventions in the year 2013 to the beginning of 2014.  This year we started the year off with our first car show:  Operation Typhoon Relief Ultra Fundraising event.  It was held at K1 Speed in Sacramento.  The event was comprised of clothing donations, canned goods donations, monetary donations, and a car show! 

The morning began cold and crisp with TLH members sweeping, picking up trash, and setting up for the event.  Cars and Vendors began rolling in at 8:30am and they continued to roll in all throughout the day.  We had cars roll in from Galt, Lodi, Stockton, and even from the Bay area to come and support.

As the day progressed, the DJs, DJRskee DJremixx and DJ Illest, set up and began spinning for the crowds enjoyment.  We also had a special performance from D-Kons which the crowd loved.  Spectators were in and out all day walking the lots looking at the cars and enjoying the event overall.

Vendors at the event donated raffle prizes to help raise money for the relief effort.  We had ever thing from a custom mug to $200 tattoo gift certificate donated by Bonehead Tattoos.  The models at the event were gracious enough to walk around and sell raffle tickets to spectators and boy did the guys love it!   

Judging of the vehicles began roughly at 12:00pm and ended around 2:30pm and then the announcements begun.  

We began announcing raffle winners and everyone who won eagerly came to the stage to claim their prizes.  After, the moment everyone was waiting for, the Trophies!!!

One by one each winner came up, claimed their trophy, and happily took a picture with model Shantel Tinajero.

 All in all we raised a ton of food and clothes and over $1000.00!

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported!  While it may not seem like a lot, remember every little bit helps.
