Thunder Valley Casino Resort is partnering with Renegade Classics Outlet to co-sponsor the 12th Annual Santa Claus Toy Run on Saturday, November 22 – a daylong charity event where motorcyclists gather to donate holiday toys for children in need. 

The toys collected during this year’s toy run will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Placer County, Kids First Auburn, Mustard Seed School and RISE, Inc.

The event will kick off with breakfast and registration at Renegade Classics in Sacramento. Bikers will then be escorted to Thunder Valley Casino Resort where they will have access to a private party in Thunder Valley’s Pano Hall and Mingle Bar– including lunch, appetizers and live music.

“The Santa Claus Toy Run supports a great cause and Thunder Valley is proud to be a continuing sponsor of the event,” said Dawn Clayton, General Manager for Thunder Valley Casino Resort. “We are anticipating a huge turnout as this year’s event offers an exciting lineup of prizes, food and entertainment.”

Bikers are encouraged to pre-register for the Santa Claus Toy Run now through Friday, November 21.  Tickets will also be on sale the day of the event at Renegade Classics.  Tickets are $30 plus a new, unwrapped toy.

All participants will receive an entry into a drawing for a new 2014 Harley Davidson FXDB Dyna Street Bob, valued at $15,000. The Harley Davidson drawing will take place at 5 p.m. on the Promotions Stage at Thunder Valley and is also open to all Thunder Rewards members that donate a new, unwrapped toy during the event. Participants must be present to win.

Additional prize drawings for all Toy Run participants will take place at 4 p.m. inside Pano Hall, and include a four pack of tickets to Mike Super - Magic & Illusion Show, a $500 gift card to Renegade Classics Outlet Sacramento, and a weekend getaway to Thunder Valley Casino Resort!
