Beckley Road in Berlin was the place to be as more than 1,600 car enthusiasts spent a sunny and breezy spring Sunday viewing close to 400 show cars and a couple of fire trucks at the 21st Annual Summer Knights Benefit Show Shine and 4th Annual Swap Meet at the Berlin Fair Grounds. “Proceeds from this show have helped many children in the area, their families and other charities,” according to Summer Knights president John Jarush.
“Last year, our benefit recipient was five-year-old Jonathan Silva of Berlin. He was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a very rare autoimmune disease that attacks the nervous system, on January 6, 2011. We were pleased to have Jonathan and his family attend the show. All profits from this year’s show will go to an as-yet-to-be-named worthy cause. Our club likes the beneficiary to be a young person or child and from the Berlin or surrounding area.”
