The 8th Show ‘N Shine for Ju­ve­nile Di­a­betes held at Paddy’s Gar­den in Car­bon­ear on July 24 was a suc­cess, with more than $7,000 raised for the Lion Max Simms Me­mo­rial Camp in Bishop’s Falls. The event was or­ga­nized by the Relic Rid­ers mo­tor­cyle club of Car­bon­ear. The club, which has 22 mem­bers, has now do­nated nearly $30,000 to the cause over the years. Some 150 bike own­ers reg­is­tered, but or­ga­niz­ers es­ti­mate that more than 400 rid­ers took part in the event. It was a “to­tal suc­cess,” said club pres­i­dent Bruno Re­ichel (fore­ground). The club de­cided to stage the event af­ter Brit­tany Trick­ett, the daugh­ter of one of its mem­bers, Neil “Buzz” Trick­ett, was di­ag­nosed with ju­ve­nile di­a­betes.
