A record-breaking $40,000 was raised during this year’s Carz Cruizin’ to Cure Cancer event for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to fight blood cancer.
The sixth annual car show at the Potomac Lakes Sportsplex in Cascades featured more than 100 classic, antique, sports and custom cars, trucks and motorcycles that were displayed for a panel of judges.
McLean Insurance Agency, hosted the event with the help of many volunteers and sponsors in memory of its founder, Henry C. Megill, Jr., who battled a rare form of lymphoma, Waldenstroms Macroglobulinemia, for several years before his death in 1990. Sponsors included Volkswagen Group of America, McLean Rotary Foundation, Electronic Warefare Association, Champion Title, VTA Valet, Patriot Captive Management, AIG Private Client Group, Raffalo, Inc., Ted Britt Chevrolet, Iroquois, and United Bank. In addition to the event’s financial sponsors, local restaurants— Bungalow Lakehouse Restaurant, Jersey Mike’s Subs, and Corner Bakery—donated food to help raise money for LLS.
