Dear All Toyotafest Participants, visitors and supporters,
Thank you for participating and visiting in All Toyotafest. Hope you had
great time under the nice weather, and at the same time we appreciate your
patience for waiting to exit from the show area.
Some of you may already know, 2 of the Lexus flags were missing from
the Lexus corporate exhibit. This might have happened during the award
ceremony. They are one of a kind flags that will have no use to anyone
who has them since its been reported stolen. TORC and corporate partners
are very shocked about this fact. In addition, the red TORC LEXUS flags
have been missing from the venue as well. We made several announcement
from the stage about missing flags, however it never was returned. Lexus
and TORC took this matter seriously and have filed a police report to the
Long Beach Police Department.
We have taken great pride in presenting a clean family
atmosphere for this event and that has been a big plus for our corporate
supporters Toyota, Scion and Lexus. This unfortunate event puts that
support in jeopardy these flags are part of a major display that travels
the country and has now been put out of commission if Lexus, Toyota and
Scion decides to pull their support over this we may have to eliminate
some categories from future events and that would be unfortunate to all
participants and spectators alike, we would appreciate the return of
these flags as soon as possible no questions asked. Or, any information
leading to its return will be kept in confidential.
Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to seeing
you all next year.
