Transport. Day

We cordially invite you to participate in our 19th Annual Transportation Day. Our highly anticipated Ahwatukee community event showcases over 40 different vehicles including a Helicopter, Fire Trucks, a City Bus, Police Vehicles, Boats, Hummers, UPS Truck, Garbage Trucks, and more. This is a great family event that includes activities for kids of all ages.  Families can explore all different types of transportation vehicles, live entertainment, inflatable bouncers, petting zoo, train rides, games, raffle baskets, boutique vendors, and food trucks and vendors.

There is no price for admission, but a portion of all the funds collected support the educational needs of our students, and our ability to maintain a high-quality, family-centered, loving, Christian preschool.  We also offer free rides on a School Bus to Kyrene de la Sierra Elementary. 
Transportation Day raises funds that will help us continue to provide a high-quality, family-centered, loving, Christian preschool.  Last year we hosted approximately 3,000 attendees and raised over $10,000 for our school.  We hope to do this again this year – but it’s not possible without your help!  We need volunteers, boutique vendors, food vendors, vehicles, raffle donations, and more! 
Last year, Transportation Day included over 40 boutique vendors, 11 food trucks and vendors, over 150 raffle baskets, over 40 vehicle operators, 20 teachers, 15 church members, 10 high school students, and 10 God’s Garden parents. 
If you would like to volunteer at or Sponsor this event, please contact the school at 480-460-0081 or godsgarden@horizonchurch.com.
We look forward to seeing you at Transportation Day on February 9th, 2019!!
