BANGOR, Maine (WABI) -A good cause started people’s engines in Bangor Sunday.

The second annual Maine Children’s Cancer Program Car Show was held at the Bangor Elks Lodge.

Cars, trucks, and motorcycles lined up to support the program while enjoying live music and food.

Trophies were up for grabs for best in show, judges’ choice, people’s choice and much more.

The event was very successful as people crowded around the incoming cars and silent auction items.

”Our major project is Maine Children’s Cancer, which is why we’re here today. And it’s what’s in my heart as State President is to take care of the kids. We’ve made over five million. I think we’re maybe getting close to six pretty soon.” said Sandi Anderson, State President for the Maine Elks Association.

“Favorite part for me is the opportunity to raise money for the children of cancer, but also give the community a great day to come see some beautiful cars, trucks, motorcycles, and to support our efforts.” stated Scott Monroe, Car Show Committee Chairman.

Alongside the raffle and silent auction, there were over 100 cars showcased.

The Elks Association is looking forward to next year’s benefit.

All proceeds went to MCCP.
