A festive and fun holiday event for kids and adults alike, Cars & Cocoa at Sonoma Raceway on Saturday, December 10 offers plenty of free activities for the kids and the chance for adults to drive their car on track or show it off in the car show.
Marking 20 years of spreading holiday cheer by way of community toy drives, Sonoma Raceway is partnering with two local non-profits to enhance the gift-giving experience this year by adding a modern twist to the experience. Community members and racing fans alike can bring joy to the youth of Sonoma County by purchasing items from curated online wish lists that reflect the needs and wishes of the children of all ages who will be receiving them.
Sonoma Raceway team members from all departments started their Monday morning off right by volunteering at the Redwood Empire Food Bank in Santa Rosa. Giving a combined total of 75 hours of their time, the group worked packaging produce for patrons who come to pick up fresh, healthy food for their families.
