Poorboys Classic Hot Rods, Auburn, NY chapter was founded circa 2002. Since then the club has raised money for various causes such as the Golisano Children’s Hospital, Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The club currently consists of 16 active members who volunteer at each Cruise-In.
Every Monday night 5:30pm-9:00pm, from May to October, the Poorboys host a Cruise-In at Skan-Ellus Drive-In. Door prizes from Advance Auto 317 W.

Drivers are provided a coin for a free ice cream or coffee.
The Poorboys host an all day car show at Advance Auto in September. Door prizes are given out throughout the show and are provided by various donors. All proceeds from this show are donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
