New Dimensions Federal Credit Union recently hosted its 8th Annual Cruisin’ for a Cure Car Show at the Lafleur Airport. On the morning of June 4, staff and volunteers arrived early to begin setting up for the biggest event they do all year. They sent the invitations, carefully planned, and were over the top that they had finally reached the day of the show. One by one, the cars began showing up to participate in a much-loved car show event for a great cause. With 160 registrations, it’s no wonder they watched in amazement when the new section of the airport filled up so quickly. The day was a complete success, and they are excited to share the results.

They collected and tallied the event funds and are thrilled to report that they raised a record-high amount of $20,240.66, and with the addition of the CO-OP Miracle Match of $10,000, the total is $30,240.66 for 2022. What an impact that will make in the lives of children, and their families, who desperately need the help.

New Dimensions FCU hosts 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, located in Scarborough, Maine. This year, fundraising activities included a 50/50 raffle and a Super Raffle that included a Yeti Package. Additionally, they raised even more money by grilling hot dogs, sausage & onions, deep-frying fries, selling pizza by the slice, and making sure breakfast pizza was available. 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 $10 per vehicle. They also suggested a $3 donation from the patrons who came to see the car show, and they stated that “as always, our community showed up generous as ever.”

They thank the area businesses that sponsor this important event each year and attribute a large part of their success to them who make it possible to donate all the proceeds to the Maine Children’s Cancer Program. Their sponsorships include gold, silver, bronze, and general and trophy sponsorships. Also included are the businesses that volunteer to donate signs, posters, pizza, super raffle prizes, and more.
