Military Families to benefit from annual event through Hope For The Warriors
The car show and concert are held outside at the Miller’s Ale House at 88 Veterans Memorial Hwy, in Commack. This free, family-friendly event runs from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. and features over 700 cars of all varieties, live music by Special Guests, BBQ food truck, raffle prizes and more.
The show is rain or shine with a $15 registration fee for cars, which can be made the day of the event. The first 100 entries receive a gift bag.
“Thank you to everyone who assists with the Cars and Guitars Classic Car Show and Fundraiser each year,” said Dean Nichol president of East to West Classic Cars. “Your commitment to our veterans is 100 percent!”
The goal of the event is to raise awareness for PTSD and funds for Hope For The Warriors, a national nonprofit that provides comprehensive services that support the well-being of post- 9/11 veterans and active- duty, military families and caregivers and families of the fallen.
“The East to West Classic Car Show and Fundraiser is a favorite Long Island event of ours each year! From the volunteers, the participants to the entire Long Island community, we’re blown away each year,” said Robin Kelleher, co-founder and CEO of Hope For The Warriors. Last year’s event was larger than ever coming off the heels of the pandemic everyone was in great spirits.”
Since its inception, Hope For The Warriors has served over 40,000 through a variety of support programs focused on health and wellness, sports and recreation and transition.
