Car Meet Raises $5,200 for Local Breast Cancer Programs

lake effect car meetLast year, Andrew Flynn got a few friends and family members together and organized a car meet at Taghkanic State Park in southern Columbia County. Andrew lost his mother to breast cancer when he was a teenager, and he decided that proceeds from the event in 2014 would benefit local breast cancer programs through the Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation. A year ago, he presented a check for $3500 to Miles of Hope Executive Director, Pari Forood, saying that he “could not wait to double the amount next year.”
On September 19, 2015, the 2nd Lake Effect Car Meet raised over $5200 for Miles of Hope.

“We didn’t quite double it,” Andrew admitted, “but we are proud of what we are able to do for breast cancer programs in our community.” In the photo, Andrew and his niece, Victoria Carpio, whose “car” won best in show at the car meet, stand with Pari Forood. (more…)
