The Trucking Association of New York and Bestpass Inc., are hosting a touch-a-truck family fundraiser to benefit veterans.

Last year more than 1,500 people attended the event. The Touch-a-Truck Event family fundraiser will give children, their parents and other attendees up-close access to a variety of trucks and emergency vehicles while also raising funds to provide critical and timely financial assistance and services to veterans, service members and their families.
The Touch-a-Truck Event is free and open the public, with attractions including:
  • A variety of commercial tractor trailers and their drivers
  • Emergency vehicles, including police cruisers and ambulances
  • Construction vehicles
  • Door prize and raffles with prizes from local organizations

The event is free, with a suggested donation, and is open to the public. It will take place on Saturday, May 20, 2017 from 9:00am-2:00pm in the overflow parking lot (across from Dave & Buster’s) at Crossgates Mall.
