Team Topson just completed our back to school backpack drive. We filled over 90 backpacks with school supplies for underprivileged children around LA County from Kindergarten through High School! We also wrote notes of encouragement to the kids :)


CicLAvia is an event held in Los Angeles where streets are closed to motor vehicles and open for the public to walk, bike, and skate through the open streets. Each CicLavia event is planned by the nonprofit organisation CicLAvia in partnership with the City of Los Angeles.[1] The event takes place on a given Sunday and is open for a predetermined set of hours. This started out as a once-a-year occurrence but later expanded to 3 times a year. In fact, plans to have CicLAvia once a month are in the works. While primarily intended for cyclists, many people can be seen skateboarding, running, or walking down the path.[2] Each street that is closed off is guarded by traffic officers who direct the cars to alternative routes through Los Angeles. On some streets the traffic lights are still in service, which means the bikers and pedestrians must abide by the traffic laws. LAPD Traffic Divisions and LADOT Parking Enforcement Traffic Officers are guarding each intersection to allow ultimate safety of the community during this event. CicLAvia brings together densely populated and diverse neighbourhoods through a bike route. The event now attracts over 100,000 participants and expands to connect even more neighbourhoods.  


Topson recently donated $25,000 to the Red Cross for relief efforts in the deadly Nepal earthquake that happed in April. One of the Red Cross reps, Patti Hartman, stopped by today to present a plaque commemorating our donation.


This past Saturday we had about 30 Topson volunteers come help out with the Heal The Bay Clean Up at Will Rodgers State Beach.  There were over 400 volunteers all together and over 70 pounds of trash picked up.  All in all it was a great turnout!


Culver City has an annual car show open to the public and this year we decided to have our own little car show in the TD parking lot.  It was a good turnout. We had about 12 cars that our employees brought, we bbq'd and just had a good time enjoying the rest of the car show. :)

Covenant House Sleep Out

Last Friday, Topson employees participated in a Sleep Out to raise awareness for Covenant House and homeless youth.  The employees raised almost $5k, and Topson has agreed to generously match the remaining balance for a total of $10k donated from the company.

Special Olympic World Games Charity Event

Topson Downs recently sponsored a table at the Special Olympic World Games Charity Event and we sent 10 of our members of the TGIM committee to attend.  We are going to be involved in the Special Olympics World Games that are happening this summer in LA.   This is supposed to be the biggest sporting event in LA since the ’84 Olympics!  More to come on how we’ll get involved but we wanted to go to this event to learn more and figure out where we can volunteer as a company.
