Annual MS car show in Schomberg nears



Written By MARK PAVILONS

Mark your calendars for the 6th annual “Let's Rock ‘n Roll MS Away” Classic Car Show and Family Fun Day on Sunday, June 23 at the Schomberg Fairgrounds. Spend a fun-filled afternoon of good wholesome fun including a classic car show, live entertainment, children's activities, food and much, much more. Past events have featured 350 to 400 cars and hosted over 2,000 guests annually.

Attractions throughout the fairgrounds include an incredible car show featuring classic, custom, European and street rods, complete with “Best in Show” prizes. There are also children's attractions, food and games – verything for the young and young at heart. Main stage entertainment will include local bands and a DJ.

This year, organizers are excited to once again have Elvira Caria, an award winning radio and TV broadcaster, as MC.

Monia Isgro, chair of the committee, is afflicted with MS and knows first-hand how important it is to raise awareness of this awful disease that strikes both men and women in the primes of their lives.

“The goal of holding this event is to promote awareness and to raise much needed funds to help those living with MS in York Region. An MS diagnosis is life-changing. We are motivated to raise enough funds to continue to donate to the local MS chapter as well as MS research. Due to lack of funding, many home care necessities are not covered by the MS Society, and therefore, the Let's Rock ‘n Roll MS Away organization is stepping forward to enable to make this financial challenge easier for some. Our goal is to be able to help those suffering from MS by providing the funds for assistive devices such as canes, walkers, chair lifts, ramps and much more. These items can significantly change their quality of life.”

All who attended are now a little more knowledgeable about MS and its effect on those inflicted with the disease. From the monies raised, donations were made to the York South MS Chapter – Client support services, assisting those who suffer from MS directly; and MS stem cell research, to help to find a cure.

The event would not be possible without the participation and significant contribution of volunteers and generous sponsors. To date, Let's Rock n' Roll MS Away events have raised over $135,000 for those in need.

Tickets for the event are available at the gate. A mere donation of $5 will get you into the park.

The “Let's Rock n' Roll MS Away” Committee, consisting of a group of dedicated and passionate individuals – many of which suffer from MS themselves – are working to improve the quality of life for those living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
