Nothing different this year; Dub’Cember is the only Euro Car GTG and Toy Drive that keeps the spirit of the holidays alive. Since 2005 Dub’Cember has been the biggest and only true Euro car enthusiast’s toy drive to benefit the Children’s Hospital. This event started in a parking lot, and we found out it needed to be relocated in 2006 due to the support and amount of enthusiasts that attended in 2005. Last year, we collected more toys than any year in the past! So many in fact, the hospital had to roll out the huge toy box to put them all in. rolling over 8 trollies of toys would have a bit too much to bring through the halls of the Children’s Hospital.
We are proud to announce that Dub’Cember and Fun City have teamed up again! Saturday December 1st, starting at 11am; join the MetroDubs crew and ANY automobile enthusiasts in helping the Children’s Hospital collect toys and give hope and enjoyment to the children in need.

Nice! I was really impressed with the EuroBerge event a few weeks ago, and I certainly would love to make it out to this event as well... not to mention it's for a good cause.
How many vehicles do you expect to be there? Also a good fundraiser?
Last year there were about 60 cars.
All of the gifts, money, and whatever that is donated are brought to the Children's Hospital in Aurora on Monday morning. The pic above with the TV was from last year. Completely filled my Jetta to the max... Only room for me to drive it to the hospital!
Spread the word. this isn't just for VW, Audi and german cars.. It's for the children and the more people involved, the more gifts we can donate to them.
