The JLP Gears Up For Its Eighth Annual Touch-a-Truck!


The Junior League of Pittsburgh will host its eight annual Touch-a-Truck fundraiser on May 16th, 2015 from 10am-2pm.

Join us rain or shine for the event where big trucks and kids become friends. Tickets for all attendees 12 months and older can be purchased in advance online for $4 or at the event for $5.

Let your kids get behind the wheel, honk the horns, and meet the men and women who drive the trucks. Past event vehicles have included fire trucks, ambulances, police cars, backhoe loaders, and excavators among many others. And let’s not forget the food trucks! 

We don’t care how you get there just as long as you are there. So snag a bus or hop in your monster truck and join us for what is gearing up to be the best Touch-a-Truck event yet. We won’t even charge you for parking! 

The location will be announced at a future date, but please check back for updates. For questions or additional information contact  Elise Cohen Sturgess at touchatruck@jlpgh.org.

Fundraisers like Touch-a-Truck enable the Junior League of Pittsburgh to create and support programs to improve the lives of women and children in Pittsburgh since 1922. Proceeds generated will go toward supporting the mission and values of the JLP, as well as initiatives like its Signature Project with iQ Kids Radio, Kids in the Kitchen, scholarships, and other children’s charities.
