Help us take a stand against blood cancers by joining us for the Annual WNY Cruise Against Cancer, on behalf of the late Jacquie Hirsch and her Foundation. The event brings together the entire car and motorcycle community in an effort to raise awareness and funds to combat life changing cancers like Leukemia. This event combines the fun and relaxing atmosphere of showing off your ride, yet also includes the excitement and thrill of getting out on the roads!
The show typically takes place the first Saturday of every August from 10:00am to 2:00pm. Come join us for some food, music, friends and fun! Join us as we honor the 2007 “Miss Mustang” Award Winner and her brave fight against leukemia!
It features custom cars, classics, antiques, muscle cars, as well as motorcycles, which are open for viewing to the public in a day filled with food, entertainment and family fun! Participants in the event are asked to make a contribution and in return, receive a food and beverage ticket, a dash plaque and free chances to win raffle prizes and give-a-ways. There is no cost to spectators however, donations are appreciated.
At the conclusion of the show we start the cruise portion of the event and parade our vehicles down to Roswell Park Cancer Institute where we will present a check from the proceeds of the event to representatives of Roswell’s Alliance Foundation. The funds raised are then directed to the Jacquie Hirsch Leukemia Research Project. The goal of this project is to discover why patients relapse after bone marrow transplants and how we can prevent this form of cancer in the future.
Be The Match Registry:
In addition to the day’s activities, The National Marrow Donor Program will be on hand at the show to add potential donors to the national registry. The testing is FREE, EASY and PAINLESS. It consists of a cheek swab of your cells using only a Q-tip! It’s that simple. You may have the lifesaving cells a patient needs and not even know it, so please, come and get tested at the show.
