Aeromotive was proud to participate in the 17th Annual Cruisin’ for a Cure charity event. Cruisin’ for a Cure was started in 2000 by Debbie Baker, whose husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer. It’s the world’s largest one-day charity car show with over 3,500 vehicles on display and over 200 vendors and exhibitors. Participants got to cruise through the Orange County Fair & Event Center for 1.5 miles and/or park and just display their vehicles.
“This was the 17th annual Cruisin’ for a Cure event and the testimonial of those who have survived prostate cancer because of their screening process is amazing,” stated Darr Hawthorne, Aeromotive’s on-site representative. “I talked with men who just showed up for the free screening and had never visited a doctor for a prostate exam…a few weren’t even into hot rods!”
Cruisin’ for a Cure is a registered non-profit California organization. The logistics, marketing, and organization of the show are all handled by volunteers dedicated to the cause of saving our men from prostate cancer. Unlike many other automotive fundraising events, none of the proceeds goes to a car club, promoter, or to administrative overhead.
