The Neighborhood Cruisers held their annual fundraiser "Cruisin' for Kids" on August 4, in honor of Gabrielle DiCarlo, a local five year old who is currently battling cancer.

Last night, at Gennaro's Restaurant in Stony Point, the Neighborhood Cruisers presented Dominic DiCarlo (Gabrielle's father) with three checks, totaling in excess of $8,400, to help with the costs associated with Gabrielle's medical care.

The funds were raised through a variety of efforts; raffles, 50/50 tickets sold during their weekly Cruise Nights at Gennaro's, local business and personal donations, and their annual event at North Rockland High School; Cruisin' for Kids.

Bob DuBois, President of the Neighborhood Cruisers, described the club's fundraising efforts as a "labor of love" and that the club was proud to be able to do something for the DiCarlo family.
