As a family owned and operated business for close to 60 years, Leon’s Transmissions is committed to more than just excellent work on cars – we are also honored to be a trusted member of our supportive and passionate Southern California community. We actively support numerous nonprofit organizations with in-kind and monetary contributions, and we are thrilled to sponsor the annual Cruisin’ for a Cure at the OC Fairground on September 28th.
Like thousands & thousands of families throughout the world, prostate cancer has effected our family in severe ways over multiple generations; our support of this event is not only great fun but an important way that we help to underwrite research to combat this brutal disease.
Cruisin’ for a Cure (a 501c3 nonprofit) was started in 2000 by Debbie Baker whose husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer. The event is the world’s largest one-day charity car show with over 3,500 vehicles on display and over 200 vendors and exhibitors. The logistics, marketing, and organization of the show is all handled by volunteers dedicated to our cause of saving men from prostate cancer.
Unlike many other automotive fundraising events, none of the proceeds goes to a car club, promoter, or to administrative overhead. Our support, and your support by way of ticket purchases, goes directly to prostate cancer research.
We hope to see you there! As extra incentive, Leon’s Transmission will be offering a whole bunch of great door prizes and fun giveaways throughout the event – more details on that soon.
