Annual LI Cruizin’ For A Cure Sept. 18

Cruzin_ALong Island Cruizin’ For A Cure will hold its 11th annual car show at the Sears Auto Center parking lot in Hicksville on Sunday, Sept. 18, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is the only car show on the East Coast to offer free onsite, PSA screening tests for early detection of prostate cancer. A special program at noon will highlight the success of the nonprofit car show.

Back by popular demand will be Stardust performing an a capella concert in the morning and early afternoon. The Kidz Fun Zone will feature the radio-controlled model race car track, a truck full of video arcade games, a face painter and a balloon caricature person; all of this located in the back of the venue is free. The event food court is back as is the noon flag and check presentation ceremony.

Cruizin’ For A Cure, organized by prostate cancer survivors and community volunteers in 2006, is dedicated to raising funds for prostate cancer research, education and early detection. Since its founding, Cruizin’ has donated more than $100,000 to Winthrop-University Hospital and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory for research.

More than 3,000 people are expected to attend this year’s Lee Iaccoca Foundation award-winning car show, where more than 700 cars and vehicles are expected to be exhibited.

“Last year 366 free PSA screening tests were conducted,” said Sandy Kane, chair and founder of LI Cruizin’ For A Cure Car Show. “Once again, we plan to make a concerted effort to encourage men to take advantage of the free screening test.”

For car collectors and vehicle enthusiasts it’s all about rods, customs, muscle and classic cars, specialty vehicles, antique fire apparatus and motorcycles.

Admission is $5 per person (kids under 12 are free). Visit or call 888-542-7849 for information.
