We're excited to announce The 7th Annual TriStateTuners Spring Meet, benefiting Make A Wish. We will be returning to Warminster Community Park again this year and are looking forward to another great event with all proceeds being donated to Make A Wish.

Last year we hosted an estimated 2,000 cars through the day and raised over $12,000 for our local chapter of Make A Wish Greater Pennsylvania and Southern West Virginia.

We will have sponsors booths set up again this year in a more central area as well as a variety of food vendors on site with some great food choices. We are also collecting some great raffle prizes that you can enter to win at the event. We are working on a couple new attractions at the event as well and will announce them if/when they are finalized.

We will be collecting a $5 donation per car at the entrance to help cover our ever rising expenses, and this small donation per car will turn into a huge contribution from our group to Make A Wish to help make this our most successful event yet.

VIP Parking will also be available again this year for a $25 donation prepaid via Paypal (or at the gate if spaces remain) to reserve a spot for your car in the primary parking section close to all the action. If you choose VIP Parking you will not also be required to make the $5 per car donation mentioned above.

There will be many worthwhile and fun ways to donate at the event so please keep that in mind so we can raise as much money as possible. As always, all proceeds will be donated to Make A Wish Greater Pennsylvania and Southern West Virginia.

You can expect a huge variety of cars from all of the tri-state area and beyond so start getting ready and we'll see you there!
