ALBION – The Albion Canalside Super Cruise drew a crowd to downtown Albion on Saturday. A section of the street was blocked off to traffic for a car show that included about 75 vehicles.

The event was also a fundraiser for the Warrior House and raised $1,000 for the organization that provides a hunting retreat in Shelby to veterans and their families.

Three members of a Pin Ups for a Cause attended the event and sold 50/50 raffle tickets and met members of the public.

Catherine Fox of Albion, center, and Jessica Carlson of Arcade also are members of the group which has about 50 members in Western New York. They attend about 200 events a year to help raise money for veterans’ causes.

What About Jane also performed from a trailer in front of the Main Street and State Street intersection. The band includes, from left: Tom Smith, Jan Erakare, Ronda Smith and Gary Smith.
