Car enthusiasts turned up in droves for a car show at the Ontario Pizza Hut that also doubled as a charity event for St. Jude's Children Research Hospital. At the beginning of the show, one young volunteer had already gotten over $700 in donations.

"This is our fifth year of doing this," said Chuck Griffith, volunteer. "It's an opportunity for people to open up their hearts and open up their wallets. This is a fundraiser, that's what this is all about, so we can help these children at St. Jude's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee."

Terry and Carolyn Meyers, the organizers of the event, expect about 1000-3000 people to visit the show. "We're predict we'll bring in at least $5,000," said Meyers. "But whatever we bring in, we're gonna be happy with." The car show also featured a raffle. Visitors could purchase tickets at the main table, which gave them a chance to win a go-kart.

"We just want to reach out to those kids at St. Jude's," said Meyers. "It's a good cause."
