At Westbury Toyota, we’re aware that every year the lives of many of our friends here in Long Island, as well as hundreds of thousands of people all across America, are affected by breast cancer. One of the most important things we can do in the fight against this unfortunate disease is help to spread awareness, and that’s what we’re going to do. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and so on the 15th we’re hosting the Street Wheelz Custom Car Show.
Of course, our car show isn’t just a car show; it’s a charity event that provides the Westbury community with an opportunity to band together for something truly important – and to show our friends in need that they are not alone during this turbulent and uncertain time.
So if you’re interested in checking out some amazing cars or you want to contribute to our fundraiser, you know where to be on October 15th. Also, as an added bonus, if you’re on the lookout for a fantastic finance or lease deal on a new Toyota, we’ll be offering those too. For all of the other details of this exciting community gathering, feel free to follow along with our complete breakdown here, or take a minute to check out the official event page over on Facebook.
Educating people about breast cancer is something we take seriously here at Westbury Toyota, and to that end we decided that we wanted to create an event that would bring our community together to pitch in for the fight against this disease. Five years ago we started the Street Wheelz Custom Car Show for Breast Cancer Awareness and it’s now a popular annual occasion. Every year we’ve gratefully welcomed all donations because all proceeds from the show are for the benefit of local Long Island families who have been affected by a breast cancer diagnosis.
If you’ve got a set of wheels you’d like to get into the contest, make sure to enter! The contest is open for cars, bikes, and trucks. Admission is free, and if you want to have your vehicle in contention for the trophy, we encourage you to make a donation. If you’re not a car nut, don’t worry – the Street Wheelz show isn’t just for gearheads and auto aficionados. There’s plenty going on to make it a fun day for everyone, including free food and drinks!
While you’re at the show, why not check out some of the great deals we’ll be offering on financing and leases for 2017 and 2018 Toyotas? We’ll be giving you some of the best offers of the year, so if you end up coming on down to the show and you’ve been thinking about getting yourself a brand new ride, there’s no better time to check out what we have to offer to our friends here in Westbury and Long Island.
According to the statistics compiled by the experts over at Breastcancer.org, it’s expected that over 200,000 women will be diagnosed with a case of breast cancer throughout 2017. It’s also one of the most commonly diagnosed types of cancer in women, and it’s estimated that nearly 30 percent of cancer diagnoses for women in 2017 will be end up being related to breast cancer. This disease can occur even if there’s no family history of breast cancer; in fact, 85 percent of all breast cancer cases happen with no genetic predisposition. Breast cancer has a higher mortality rate for women in America than any other type of cancer, and that’s why we at Westbury Toyota are so determined to do our part in spreading awareness of this terrible disease.
We want everyone to understand how crucial it is that organizations devoted to finding a cure or improved treatments for breast cancer receive continued funding. There are organizations devoted to providing help to the victims of this disease (and their families), and we want to spread awareness of those too. Westbury Toyota is committed to helping boost awareness of breast cancer throughout the Long Island community in any way possible through events like the Street Wheelz Custom Car Show.
If you want to pitch in and help us with spreading awareness of this disease, why not come on down to the show on October 15th? Not only will you be showing your support for those in need, you’ll be helping us foster a sense of community, as well as increase the popularity and success of this charity event. If you want to take it a step further, we’ll welcome any donation or other contribution you want to make toward breast cancer prevention, research, and relief support. To show our appreciation to you, we’ll also be offering some great deals on new Toyotas and we’d love to be able to hook you up with the new car you’ve been dreaming of. There’s no reason not to come to the Street Wheelz Custom Car Show and we’re grateful every year to all those who attend because every little bit helps. We hope to see you there!
