OUR FIRST CRUISE NIGHT OF 2016 was a huge success! We registered 152 cars on Monday, 5/16/16. Unfortunately we had to cancel a few cruise nights because the Galloping Hill Inn has scheduled parties on Monday night and then the weather was uncooperative on other nights!
At the end of the 2016 cruise season, we had 686 cars registered and we awarded 488 trophies. At our Halloween show, we gave away a few prizes that were donated by sponsors. See the Cruise for a Cause page for details.
The Galloping Hill Cruisers Car Club is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote the safe enjoyment of all types of vehicles. We celebrated our Club's 25th anniversary in 2013; throughout all these years we have generated and donated funds to worthwhile organizations in our area. Our Club's passion is more than just cars ... we have developed a wonderful relationship with the people at New Jersey Institute for Disabilities (NJID) ... and we will continue to donate to them.
For a mother who has given birth to a baby with special needs, NJID provides a comprehensive early intervention program. The Children's Center offers help and hope to the babies as their families struggle to find answers at this most challenging time. For a child who can neither walk nor speak, the Lakeview School and Treatment Center provides assistive technology, special education, therapeutic and medical services. Through its adult divisions, NJID is making a difference with programs of job training, residential services, counseling, support services and meaningful day programs.
