BONBEACH couple Tony and Daniela Ruberto have a personal drive to raise money for children’s brain tumour research.
Their eldest son Marcus passed away in November 2009 at the age of five due to a brain stem tumour, two months after initial diagnosis.
The Rubertos and their two sons James, eight, and Simon, four, now spend all available spare time organising events in aid of medical research that could help those afflicted with brain tumours in future.
Mr and Mrs Ruberto have organised a classic car day at Bonbeach Sports Reserve on Sunday 2 March.
Entry is by gold coin donation with all proceeds going to the Isabella and Marcus Fund.
Classic car enthusiasts pay $20 to display their vehicles on the day and more than 500 cars from years gone by are expected to be on show. The exhibitors’ fees will also go towards brain tumour research.
– The 4th annual Isabella and Marcus Fund Classic Car Day is on Sunday 2 March at 8.30am-3pm. Visit www.isabellaandmarcusfund.org.au for further information.
