There’s a new festival in town and it promises to be a doozie.

The Name: The Woodstock Truck Show.

The Place: The TA Travel Plaza, Woodstock ON. (Exit 230 on the 401.)

The Date: Saturday, May 31 to Sunday, June 1.  Gates open Friday, May 30, at 5:00 p.m.

The Very Best Part: It’s for a good cause. Kevin Verbruggen of Verbruggen Trucking is helping organize the event and he says all the proceeds from the truck show as well as from the subsequent calendar sales will be divided up between two excellent causes: Special Olympics Ontario and the World’s Largest Truck Convoy, which also raises money and awareness for Special Olympics.

“Trucker are a great community and they take pride in their profession,” Verbruggen told todaystrucking.com. “This gives us a chance to put them in a positive light for the public.”

 Convoy brings awareness to Special Olympics

Chris Klein-Geltink led the way in the passenger seat of Scott Verbruggen's truck Saturday, as the duo was the lead vehicle in a 47-truck convoy. 
Klein-Geltink, a Special Olympics athlete from Woodstock, met Verbruggen through baseball. Verbruggen is friends with Klein-Geltink's brother and the connection led to Verbruggen joining the Special Olympics Truck Convoy in 2012 for the first time.  “With a partner like him, how could I not?” Verbruggen said after the convoy Saturday.

The idea of a fundraising calendar came about this spring and by July he had enough photos of trucks — some taken by himself, others donated — to compile a 2014 calendar. It was summer by the time they returned from the printer and then it was a mad dash to sell them to raise money to support Special Olympics. As of Saturday, proceeds from the calendar had already raised $7,000, making Verbruggen one of the top-12 drivers per money raised for the convoy.

The top dozen brought in more than $27,000 of the $80,000 raised this year. As the convoy goes into its 10th year in 2014, organizers hope to top $100,000 in pledges and donations.
