Classic car show in Thiells raises money for sick kids

Hundreds of classic cars parked at North Rockland High School Sunday to raise money for kids with medical problems.

The 6th Annual Cruisin' For Kids Benefit was sponsored by the Neighborhood Cruisers Association. Some 200 classic car owners signed up for the event.

Lexi Manning, 2, was riding in a Radio Flyer wagon. The girl suffers from Angelman syndrome.

"She has a lot of movement disability," said Lexi's mother Terry Manning. "She has severe seizures we're trying to control with medication."

However, medication and medical care costs quickly add up. "There are a bunch of denials, co-pays," said Lexi's father Donald Manning. "There's medical equipment that they won't buy ? You just get tired of fighting with the insurance companies."

The classic car show helps families like the Mannings pay bills. Lexi's parents said the event also serves as a great morale booster.
