YORKTOWN, N.Y. - The fifth annual “East Coast Cruzers Car Show” was held in Yorktown on Sunday, Sept. 25, and funds raised were donated to cancer research.
About 85-100 cars and motorcycles were entered into the show, said Lou Russo, of East Coast Auto Sales & Storage, which hosted the show at its 1401 Front St. shop. All money raised through entry fees and a 50/50 raffle was donated to the MPN Research Foundation, which researches treatments for myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN). Russo’s sister, Roseann, is currently battling the rare form of blood cancer, for which there is no cure.
At the show, the Dr. Johnny Fever Band provided live entertainment throughout the day. Food was provided by Yorktown’s own Destination Bistro.
