Here at the Diecast Hall of Fame, we know it’s the community which makes this hobby special. The amazing contributions of past and future inductees and the community as a whole are what continue to propel the diecast industry forward and make a positive difference in the world.
When hobbyDB and a coalition of diecast collectors and enthusiasts started to manage the Diecast Hall of Fame, we were thrilled to be able to honor the people and model vehicles which make collecting such a special hobby. But we were also excited by the opportunity to give back and make a positive impact and – since we all fell in love with collecting when we were in single digits – we thought the best way to do that would be by finding a children’s charity to donate to!
As such, we have decided to donate all of the net proceeds from this year’s Diecast Hall of Fame event in November to There With Care.
Like hobbyDB, There With Care is Boulder based and an organization which is near and dear to our hearts. Its mission is to provide a wide range of thoughtful and fundamental services to children and families during the critical phase of a medical crisis. They serve families referred by medical agencies, by building a network of services and people who ease the burden of life’s day-to-day obligations with compassion and care.
Executive Director of There With Care Paula DuPre’ Pesmen was very excited to partner with the Diecast Hall of Fame – “There With Care is honored and grateful to be the recipient of the Diecast Hall of Fame event in Las Vegas on November 2, 2017. There With Care provides day-to-day support to children and families facing critical illness and the team behind the Diecast Hall of Fame understands the needs of the families we serve. Through their generous support and partnership in care, we will be able to ease the stresses for families when they need it most and give them more time to be with their children during a fragile time in their lives.”
The meaningful support There With Care provides is unique to each family and includes transportation services, meal and grocery services, home maintenance and more.
Diecast Hall of Fame Chairman, Christian Braun stated “it’s absolutely fantastic that we found a way to make a local impact in the lives of children. As a father myself, I understand the importance of having extra support when help is needed. We are very proud to support There With Care and hope our donation can help their team continue to make a wonderful difference in the lives of the families that they care for.”
