DFW Elite Toy Museum Hosts Pre Grand Opening Party for Salesman Sample Exhibit to Help Dog Rescue
-- Tuesday, July 16 party in Fort Worth benefits cavalier rescue. --

    FORT WORTH, TX, July 09, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- On Tuesday July 16, DFW Elite Toy Museum will hold a Grand Opening party to unveil its latest exhibit of Salesman Samples, featuring a working demonstrator model of a late 19th century Adams Road Grader that was appraised on an episode of Antiques Road Show as well as many other antique sales presentation models and patent models.

"Very often salesman samples were used to demonstrate large-scale equipment that it was not easy to transport," said DFW Museum owner Ron Sturgeon. "Imagine trying to explain a folding attic stair or show prospects how a hay baler or road grader works without a working scale model," said Sturgeon.

"We are very lucky to have had the chance to acquire the Adams Road Grader sample with its case shortly after it was on Antiques Road Show," said Rodney Ross, museum curator. "It is a spectacular model in near mint condition that has appraised over ten thousand dollars."

The event will be on Tuesday, July 16 from 530-8:30 pm at DFW Elite Toy Museum, 5940 Eden Drive in Fort Worth and dress is casual. The event is a fundraiser for Cavalier Rescue, and guests will be asked to make a $10 donation at the door to help fund this breed-specific dog rescue.

DFW Elite Toy Museum has a 300-piece collection of antique toys, rare scale models, and one-of-a-kind auto memorabilia. The museum is pet-friendly, public, and admission is free. The exhibit will run through August 31.

"Anyone who visits DFW Elite Toy Museum will notice two things: Ron's love of cars and his love of dogs," Ross said. "We're excited about the event and hoping for a great turnout to help a worthy cause."
