The Results Are in for Our 9th Annual Cruisin’ for A Cure Car Show
We recently hosted our 9th Annual Cruisin’ for a Cure Car Show at the Waterville Lafleur Airport. Although the weather wasn’t in our favor, we still had over 70 dedicated car owners who didn’t let the rain stop them! In other exciting news, we were, again, selected to receive a Miracle Match from the CO-OP Financial Services organization for credit unions (a program that assists credit unions in their fundraising efforts for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals such as the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital). By combining the funds raised from the 2023 Cruisin’ for A Cure Car Show ($15,966.11) and the funds from the CO-OP Miracle Match ($5,000.00), our total donation to the Maine Children’s Cancer Program is $20,966.11!!!
We host the “Cruisin’ for a Cure Car Show” each year to raise money for the Maine Children’s Cancer Program (MCCP) – an affiliate of The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center in Scarborough, Maine. This year, fundraising activities included a 50/50 raffle and a $500 Cash for Kids Super Raffle. Additionally, we raised even more money by grilling and selling various food and drink options. Other efforts to raise money were the proceeds from tee-shirt sales, and, of course, each car show participant paid a nominal registration fee of $15 per vehicle. We also suggested a $3 donation from the patrons who came to see the car show.
We would like to thank and attribute a large part of our success to the local businesses that sponsor our largest fundraising event, as they make it possible to raise all the proceeds for the Maine Children’s Cancer Program. Our sponsorship levels/categories include gold, silver, bronze, general, and trophy. Some general sponsors donated signage, posters, pizza, super raffle prizes, and more.
