30th annual car show benefits Shriners Hospital for Children

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Car and motorcycle enthusiasts made their way to Smith & Wesson headquarters on Sunday to take in the 30th anniversary of the Tuned by Tuna Car and Bike Show.

Not only does the group show off their rides, it puts them to use with a parade to the Shriners Hospital for Children on Carew Street.

The man in charge, Charlie Sumares, is retiring from the show after three decades and gets choked up thinking about what's been accomplished.

"We helped the Shriners Hospital for 30 years," said Sumares. "Without people like us, they might not stay around. But we have the new blood coming in, and these guys are going to carry it on."

Proceeds from Sunday's event benefited the Shriners Hospital.

Shriners says they are dedicated to delivering the highest quality care for children with orthopaedic and neuro-musculoskeletal disorders and diseases, regardless of a family's ability to pay.
