To all Alfisti & Fiafisti, I want to thank everyone who made Viva 2018 a success! We had many complements that the showing of cars was the best display yet. I want to thank all of you in the club who donated their time and energy to make this show such a success. I want to thank all of you who attended and displayed your cars in the show. We want to send a special thank you want to John Tremblay, his dad and their team for the fantastic car display. It was certainly a big hit at this years show. Speaking of John, I want to make all of you aware of a very special charity John's family started. It is called the Ella Reese Foundation, Inc. This is a foundation to help those families dealing with childhood cancer. Ella is John's niece whom was diagnosed with cancer at a very young age. Fortunately, she has beat the disease because of early detection. You can read Ella's story at EllaFightsBack.com . The family has made it their mission to educate families on the early detection signs and helping with financial as well as emotional support. We took a portion of the proceeds from the entry fees of Viva 2018, and made a donation to the Ella Reese Foundation. This is a truly worthy cause and helps families in Florida. The foundation sent a thank you note which I have attached to this email. I have also attached a flyer for an upcoming fund raiser/ car show February 23rd, 2019. It should be a great time and a very worthy cause. Let's show our support and display as many cars from the club to attend this event!!! It doesn't have to be an Alfa or a Fiat. So those of you with Porsche s, Lambo's, Bentley's, Corvettes, Mustangs, etc... can also show your cars. Thank you again on behalf of the Mid Florida AROC. Regards, Norman
