Car shows are about fun, but an event Sunday may also save your life.

Long Island Cruizin' for a Cure Car Show brings together hundreds of antique and classic cars along with a concert featuring music from the era when Thunderbirds, Corvettes and Mustangs first rolled off the Detroit assembly lines. Admission is $5 (children under 12 free).

The show's main mission is to support men who are fighting prostate cancer and their families, and to educate others on how to recognize it early. Health professionals from North Shore-LIJ Health System will administer blood tests for prostate-specific antigen, known as PSA tests. The exams are free after paying the admission charge. Proceeds from the show will go to support prostate cancer education on Long Island.

The show is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. outside Sears Automotive Center in Hicksville. For more information, go to, or call 888-542-7849.
