Countdown to Cruise at the College

Genesee Hosts Second Annual Cruise Night

The second annual Cruise at the College is just two weeks away and organizers are gearing up for an exciting event. Scheduled for Saturday, July 26, 2008 at Genesee Community College, the cruise night will feature an evening of free family fun including “cruising” cars, motorcycles, and trucks from across the region. The Cruise, which will feature Skull Crusher Trikes this year in addition to food and entertainment, begins at 4:00 pm and runs to 8:00 pm.


This year’s sponsors have contributed a wide array of goods and services to rev up the excitement. The first two hundred cruisers will receive dash plaques from O-AT-KA Milk Products (see photo link) and goody bags from Advantage Auto Parts. Music by Dennis Pfalzer is sponsored by Ken Barrett Chevrolet and a corporate underwriting grant has been contributed by HSBC Bank.


Other sponsors include:

•Advance Auto

•Auto Zone

•Car Quest

•Genesee Auto Body

•Gui’s Lumber

•Sloat Tire Shop

•Stan’s Harley Davidson

•Value

•Wal-Mart


Skull Crusher Trikes, from Leicester NY, will have several of their custom-built trikes on display. The Batavia Area Jaycees are sponsoring a chicken barbeque during the Cruise. Pre-sale tickets are available for $8 by calling the Jaycees at 585-343-5775. Hot dogs and hamburgers will be available at the event by the Batavia Lions Club, Pauly’s Pizzeria will have pizza slices for sale with half the proceeds going to the Genesee Community College Foundation, and Abbott’s Frozen Custard will be serving ice cream. Other family-friendly attractions include a chance to see ultra lights and unique remote-controlled flying machines flown by the Batavia Flying RC Club.


There is no admission or entry fee for Cruise at the College, however organizers are encouraging donations for Genesee’s Transportation Scholarships. This fund helps student commuters who have unmet transportation problems that sometimes prohibit them from attending classes or working toward earning a degree.
