The 2020 Car Show Long Island Spring Tobay Classic was cancelled but this summer gear hears, classic car afficianos, and everyday drivers can still roll down to Marjorie Post Park in Massapequa to take part in a “Cruise Thru Food Drop” on Saturday, July 11 (rain date of July 12).


Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor Joseph Saladino said that the township found it critical to support local food banks and a May Cruise Thru Food Drop collected over 18,000lbs of non-perishable food items for families and seniors across Long Island.


“We ask residents to once again open their hearts and cupboards to help those in need of food assistance,” Saladino said in a statement. “Together, we can and will end hunger on Long Island.”


The food drive will run from 9am to 2pm with the donations going to restock local food banks throughout Long Island. Residents can donate non-perishable food items and pet food at the event. Show cars and non-show cars are both welcomed, and proper social distancing guidelines will be followed throughout the course of the event while collecting food donations.


The event is sponsored by MSG Networks, Bethpage Federal Credit Union, WBLI and WBAB. For more about Island Harvest and their mission visit
