Third Annual Truckload Strong Fundraiser Raises More Than $80,000


LAS VEGAS, Nevada:

During Truckload 2021: Las Vegas last month, attendees had the opportunity to enjoy a luminous evening under the stars while supporting the Truckload Carriers Association’s (TCA) major initiatives and programs.

On Monday, September 27, more than 300 truckload industry professionals and their guests gathered in a unique venue — the iconic Neon Museum — to raise more than $80,000.

Thanks to the generosity of event host Daimler Trucks, all proceeds raised will help support and elevate TCA’s major initiatives and programs, including the Association’s newly announced Truckload Strong campaign.

Set in an outdoor exhibition space, eventgoers had the opportunity to tour dozens of iconic Las Vegas signs while networking and catching up with colleagues.

Founded in 1996, the Neon Museum is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, studying, and exhibiting iconic Las Vegas signs for educational, historic, arts and cultural enrichment.

Attendees also enjoyed unlimited food and beverages, non-stop music, and were encouraged to try their hand at carnivalesque games.

Donations were raised via individual ticket sales, participation in carnival games, Truckload Strong commemorative flashing neon LED tumblers, and general donations.

Eventgoers were able to show off their strength by playing the High Striker – also known as a strength tester or strongman game – in which an attendee would swing a rubber hammer to see how high they could score.

Additionally, attendees could try their hand at an old-school noteworthy game – Plinko – where attendees would drop round chips down a vertical board with pegs in hopes that the chip would land in a cubby hole with a prize allotted.
