HWC Staff posted an entry in EventsBy Allen Voivod In 2018 – the 50th Anniversary of Hot Wheels! – we released a bevy of cars especially for the celebration. 111, to be exact. We gathered them in a massive HWC 50th Anniversary Master Set, which sold out quickly when it went on sale last year. If you missed your chance to get that set, now you have a special opportunity to add it to your collection through a special charity auction for the Boys & Girls Club of Carson (CA). Their mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. And you can help! Click here to go to the auction site and place a bid. The auction runs through Wednesday, November 13th, and is scheduled to end between 7:30pm and 8:00pm Pacific Time. Place your bid now and support this worthy cause!
