The Reading Motorcycle Club raised $5,400 at their annual Bike & Rod Cruise In & Night Drags for 4-year-old Ella Grace Luchansky, this year's benefactor.
200 motorcycles and 125 cars were on display at the show, attended by hundreds of people.
'The event went off without a hitch,' said Kerry Joffred, the event's coordinator. The drag racing, which began Saturday, finished on Sunday as a result of rainy weather-but the race was able to reach completion.
As the guest of honor, Ella was driven down the race track on a four-wheeler, accompanied by her family members.
Ella was diagnosed with Stage 4 high risk Neuroblastoma on March 10, 2011. Ella was only 2 years old at the time. Her family was told she has less than a 30% chance of survival. Ella had gone from enjoying gymnastics on Wednesdays to battling stage 4 cancer.
In Jan. 2012, her family received news that Ella was NED: no evidence of disease. With this particular cancer, a person needs to live five years to be cured. The fight was not over. On March 28, Ella relapsed.
'She will continue to fight in true princess fairy fashion. She is the strongest little girl you will ever meet.' said Jennifer Luchansky, Ella's mother.
Ella, who turned 4 on April 22, 2012, lives at home with her mom and two brothers in Coplay, Pa. She was nominated as this year's benefactor by RMC member and great uncle Keith Slavek of Bechtelsville.
The Reading Motorcycle Club's Bike and Rod Show benefits those in need since 1996. This show has been originated and coordinated by the RMC's from Exeter Township.
Rays Yamaha-Victory-Polaris, R&B Auto Sales were the sponsors of this year's race.
