Dozens of exotic cars will be driven from the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa's beautiful Golf Resort up to Ferrari of Ft. Lauderdale, then on to the amazing Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino - all to benefit underprivileged children this holiday season.

Last year, a record breaking donation of over $13,000 in cash and two 7-ton USMC military truckloads of toys were raised!  Let's raise even more smiles on the faces of children for the holidays this year!

"We are honored to support Toys for Tots and are pleased to be part of such a fine charity during this holiday season. It is our intention to continue supporting this organization throughout the year and we encourage all to step up in the efforts," said John Mattera.

The Toy Rally's Mission:

The South Florida Exotic Car Toy Rally is a 100% charity based event, that brings together fellow exotic car enthusiasts for one of the largest gatherings and parades of the world's most exotic cars - all with the purpose of raising toys and cash for Toys for Tots. Toys for Tots is administered by the United States Marine Corps (USMC), with the initiative of collecting new, unwrapped toy donations, then distributing those toys directly to underprivileged children to put a smile on their faces and brighten their holidays.

John Mattera founded The Mattera Foundation in Boca Raton, Florida.

The Mattera Foundation's Mission:

The Mission of The Mattera Foundation is to strengthen the community through bringing good people and good causes together to help ensure both the excellent stewardship of donor funds and the wise investment of grants in the communities that we serve. The Mattera Foundation puts the joy back in giving.
