Troop 3 (Smithtown) is proud to be a supporter of Long Island Cruizin’ For A Cure (a 501(c)(3) Not For Profit). Long Island Cruizin’ For A Cure is an antique and classic car show to raise money for prostate cancer testing and education. This year’s Show, the Shows 8th Annual, was held on Sunday, September 8th, 2013, at the Sears Auto Center on Broadway (Routes 106/107) in Hicksville.
In addition to being the color guard at the noon day ceremony and festivities, over 40 volunteers from the Troop assisted with the show. Troop volunteers (including Scouts, leaders, committee members, and parents) helped with security, assisted show visitors, fed volunteer workers, and collected the show’s admission fee.
The show was a huge success. According to the Event founder, Sandy Kane there were approximately 3,000 paid visitors at the show and most importantly, 312 free prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests were administered. The PSA tests can lead to the early detection of prostate cancer. All of the proceeds collected go to prostate cancer testing and research. Sandy Kane presented a $20,000 check to the Cold Spring Harbor Labs to fund two Prostate Cancer research programs and to cover the cost of the free PSA screening at the event.
