Following the previous year, The Car Culture hosted another toy drive event at Sugar Land Town Center last month. The toy drive collection went to the kids over at Texas Children’s Hospital.
I arrived a bit early to the town center which w as already lined up with cars in the front parking spots, with that I had to park my ride around the corner away from the center display area. I proceeded towards the main center to begin my coverage along with my kids, which didn’t last long. Right away they started complaining they were hungry, which I told them to eat before we left. Of course they didn’t listen though. We ended up walking over the the Starbucks to get them something to eat so I could get some time to take photos.
Once they grabbed their food, we headed back to the sitting area so they could eat while I officially began my coverage. I walked around for a little while before heading back to them to see if they were done. We all ended up walking around a bit checking out the various rides, but with their shorter attention spans they were done with the event pretty fast. Unfortunately for them I wasn’t, so they had to stick around a bit longer as I continued my coverage of the event. The meet is only 2 hours, so they could sit through that while I finished.
After I was done with the initial photos, my usually 3/4th angle shot of each ride, I walked around a bit longer getting some more photos of whatever caught my eye. Don’t get me wrong, all the rides looked great but I wan;t there to do a photo shoot for each ride. For the remainder of the time we hung out with our friends at Imperial Collision and their booth. Next thing you know it was ending time. The meet went had a great turnout of people coming out to check out the rides with estimated of $5,000 worth of toys collected during the meet with another $1,000 collected from those who couldn’t make it.
