Hicksville, NY - August 26th, 2013 - Long Island Cruizin’ For A Cure, which returns to Long Island on Sunday, September 8th,  is the only annual car show on the East Coast to provide free onsite PSA screening tests for the early detection of prostate cancer.  This unique car show promotes prostate cancer awareness and raises funds for research for a cure of this form of cancer.  In 2012 a total of $20,000 was donated to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory for scientific research.  This year's show will take place from 9 am to 3 pm at the Sears Auto Center parking lot in Hicksville.  Over 3,500 people are expected and more than 600 cars and vehicles will be exhibited at the all-volunteer, nonprofit group’s eighth annual event.  Tesla Motors will have its Model S all-electric luxury sedan on display. Rallye Motors is a lead sponsor.  Other sponsors include Alure; Parts Authority; Huntington/Garden City Mazda; Exotic Classics and Fiore Motors.
 
As in the past, there will be a special tent where the PSA prostate cancer screening tests will be conducted free by Winthrop University Hospital.  Men with elevated PSA readings will be referred to their physicians for follow-up.  Volunteers wearing blue L.I. Cruizin’ tees will be available to encourage men to take advantage of the onsite free blood-screening tests.
 
“Last year we achieved our objective which was to provide hundreds of free prostate screening PSA tests. We’re ready for another fantastic day with our exhibitors, visitors, entertainment, vendors and sponsors. This will be our third year at the Sears Automotive Center parking lot, the perfect location for this event.  Our volunteers, many of whom are prostate cancer survivors like me, put forth a tremendous effort to plan the event. Its popularity has grown because it has so much to offer car enthusiasts, families and kids,” said Sandy Kane, Chair and Founder of LI Cruizin’ For A Cure Car Show.
 
The September show is a fun-filled family friendly day.  For car collectors and enthusiasts it’s all about rods, customs, muscle and classic, specialty vehicles, antique fire apparatus and motorcycles. Entertainment includes dee-jays Fonzie and ChaChi and popular doo wop groups, a Kids Fun Zone with a model race track, plus a food court, a 50/50 raffle and much more. Admission is $5; kids under 12 are free.
