October 3/16 Well the show went on as planned. The day started off with some rain and then some heavy rains came, then by 9:30 the rains had stopped and the classic cars started rolling in. All together we had 57 out standing vehicles of all kinds.
D.J. Paul from Essex played oldies but goodies all day long. We gave away 30 door prizes. Everyone received a ticket when they registered. I made an announcement on the p.a. that first come first get. There was a mad rush to the tables and the door prizes where gone within minutes.
We also had raffle prizes that anyone could purchase tickets for a chance to win some great prizes. We also had a grand prize raffle draw for a brand new weed wacker someone out in the crowd picked the lucky ticket and you would never guessed who won it, my wife she had bought some tickets and won.
Myself and three other original classic cruisers walked around all the vehicles and we judged them all. I gave away 34 trophies and plaques to a few lucky winners. We had a 50/50 draw and the winner decided to give the money back and include it with the rest of the donations for little Sophie.
The long distance went to Randy Marco from Pairs Ontario, he also won best VW Beatle. Over all everyone seemed like they all had a great time. It was great to see so many people come together for a great cause. The final tally raised was $2600. All funds will be going to Sophie O’Brien to help her in anyway possible.
I would again thank all my volunteers for helping with this car show. A lot of work went into it and all for a good cause. If you would like to see any pictures of today’s show please visit this link here. When you click on the link below it will open up a new page.

Thank You, Thank You to my Uncle Gino DelCiancio and his wonderful family and friends for raising funds to help our baby girl Sophie continue to fight against Retinoblastoma cancer. A huge Classic Car show event was held in Leamington yesterday to assist in Sophie’s furthering costs related to her treatment and travel expenses while she undergoes her cancer treatments.
I usually travel to CHEO 2-3 times a week during our break from HSC to monitor Sophie’s side effects and blood counts. As many of you know Sophie receives many Red blood cell and Platelets transfusions on an ongoing basis and we really hope if people are able to donate blood locally in honor of Sophie’s struggles we would certainly appreciate that.
Sophie has finished her sixth cycles of chemotherapy through her central port and is scheduled to undergo her first Invitreal chemotherapy on Wednesday Oct 5 th at HSC in Toronto. This new technique of chemotherapy will directly attack the large tumors and the blizzard of tumor seeds in both of Sophie’s eyes which have caused her to become legally blind. Despite Sophie’s poor vision, she and our family have adapted very well and continues to rebound each day and get a little bit stronger. The sixth cycle of chemo really took a toll on all of us. I am blessed to always say that I travel with friends and family to chemo at Sick Kids who are by our side helping with Sophie each and every cycle. These special people rearrange their lives to be by our side everytime.
We all know how heartbreaking the last cycle was to watch with Sophie as she was incredibly sick. It’s obviously heart wrenching to watch your child be so sick, but we stay focused on ringing that bell soon enough when this is all behind us.
Invitreal chemotherapy has been done for many years in the USA and Switzerland and is now officially being done at HSC.
Canadian families of RB kids usually incurred costs of up to $30000 dollars to travel outside of Canada to receive this type of chemotherapy treatment. We are so lucky to be able to receive this necessary treatment in Canada this week. It is a very complicated procedure and Sophie will have her eye acuity testing done tomorrow in preparation for Chemo. We are continuing to pray her counts are good this week in order to be on schedule with her treatment plan. Everyone from near and far has followed Sophie’s posts and continue to uplift us in many ways each and everyday.
Thank you truly to everyone for their continued love and supports. Another huge honorable mention to my Italian family and their gracious and supportive network of friends as well for putting so much hard work and effort into such a successful event that directly affects someone they love and care for ♥. Thank you to my Uncle Gino and Aunt Liz especially for having this great event in Sophie’s honor.
Chris O’Brien and I continue to stay strong and fight against our Princess Sophie’s Cancer! God granted us a miracle when we adopted Sophie and we will never take that for granted! #MiracleFamily
