Founded in 1999 by Eddie Walter, the East Coast Car Association has been raising money for St. Mary's Hospital for Children in Bayside, New York for 13 years.

Each year between the months of April and November, the ECCA hosts Cruise Nights and Car Shows, as well as setting up classic car and hot rod displays at local events such as parades, community days and carnivals.

To finish off each year, the ECCA hosts a Toy Run which typically includes over 100 cars and motorcycles loaded with toys cruising through the streets of Queens, N.Y. with a police escort to St. Mary's. Once we arrive at St. Mary's, the toys are given out to the children and our yearly donation is given to the hospital.

Through 2011, the ECCA has raised more than $90,000 for St. Mary's.

Our Cruise Nights and Shows are family-friendly events and are open to all vehicles. We look forward to seeing your there!
