The wheels are in motion for Touch a Truck, the Greenwich Junior League’s fundraiser held every June at Town Hall. Each year more than 3,000 people turn out to climb aboard all types of trucks, ride the Rolling Train around the parking lot, and visit the petting zoo and other attractions. Proceeds from the event, which is the Junior League’s second-largest fundraiser, will benefit the group’s community projects: Young Women’s Breast Cancer Support Group, Positively Me!, Positively More, Done In A Day, and the Greenwich Pool and Byram Park. This year Touch a Truck is bringing in new activities to appeal to all ages. “Our target audience is younger kids, but we’re trying to attract older kids, seven-, eight- and nine-years olds,” says Patricia Gallardo, who is cochair of the event along with Martha Agarwal. Those attractions include a remote-controlled monster truck and a mobile shopping boutique for little ones more into fashion than four-wheeling. Pizza Post helps to fuel up participants by donating pizza to all truck drivers and volunteers.
