This morning we headed out to the Orange County Fairgrounds for the Cruisin For A Cure Car Show benefiting prostate cancer. This is a one day event to raise awareness of prostate cancer and encourage early detection. Free PSA tests are available and ALL the money raised goes to prostate cancer research. It is the #2 killer of men, surpassed only by heart disease. My husband is a prostate cancer survivor on top of heart disease which resulted in his undergoing a quadruple bypass in 2001 and, two years later, receiving an implanted cardiac defibrillator.
Besides about 3,000 cool cars from every era, there is food, live entertainment, and great people watching.

BTW, Blue is the color of prostate cancer; I found out this week when Marcy at The Glamourous Life Association was raging about everything pink, which, I think we all know, is the color of breast cancer. Makes sense… continue the ingrained societal stereotypes.
Back to the car show… A unique thing about this show is that owners actually drive their cars on a route through the show so you get the benefit of some rumbling and revving sound effects and the smell of high octane exhaust!
