Partnering with the Adelaide Rev Heads 'Cars for a Cause' group.

On Sunday October 20th 2019 we held a picnic in memory of Carmel Maio, who passed away from brain cancer in 2018.

$16,605 was raised for brain tumour research in South Australia - what an amazing achievement and congratulations to all involved.

The afternoon featured a bike & muscle car display thanks to the Adelaide Rev Heads - Cars for a Cause. The purpose was to raise money for brain cancer research. We had a great turn out, and visitors enjoyed a relaxing day filled with delicious food, beverages and live entertainment.

Many thanks to our sponors, supporters, volunteers and those companies who donated goods:
