Beautiful weather set the stage for ADESA Boston’s 17th annual Classic Car Show & Motorcycle Run earlier this month.

More than 50 classic cars and motorcycles were entered in the show, and a 30-mile motorcycle run took 40 riders through several scenic Massachusetts towns — complete with a police escort of nine bikes and an SUV.

On the ground at ADESA Boston, the day’s festivities included live music, raffles, food catered by Fulciniti’s — a local favorite —and a live auction featuring award-winning auctioneer Mike Chambers.

The show/run was part of the auction’s fundraiser for JDRF, a leading advocacy group for people with type 1 diabetes. Through sponsorships, vendor fees, registrations, donations and a live auction, ADESA Boston raised more than $17,000 for the charity. The live auction alone brought in nearly $8,000.

One popular item in the auction was an autographed, framed photograph of New England Patriots running back James White, as he scored the game-winning touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons during Super Bowl LI.

Other popular auctioned items included a signed and framed photo of Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski and a kids’ fidget spinner basket.

The classic car show and motorcycle run is the main event in ADESA Boston’s annual charity drive, which runs through August. Since 2001, the auction has raised more than $600,000 for children’s charities, including JDRF.
