The Long Island Antique Power Association held its third annual Ride for a Cause Sunday morning to raise funds for a Marine veteran and his family.

A dozen tractors made their way east along Sound Avenue from Hallockville Museum Farm, heading toward Southold, where they turned around for their return trip.

All proceeds from the ride will benefit Marine veteran James Butz, who is suffering from PTSD, and his son Teddy, who was recently diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

If you would like to make a donation, please make checks payable to the LIAPA and mail to P.O. Box 1134, Riverhead, NY 11901.
