Long Islanders came out to show its support for the Michael Magro Foundation during a car show benefit featuring more than 80 cars at Cold Spring Country Club on Aug. 24.
Chaired by Tom Galati and Larry Ruisi, the event raised money for the Michael Magro Foundation’s programs that support local families with a child battling pediatric cancer. In addition to the Mustang and Ferrari Exotic Car Clubs, each of which threw their support to the Foundation, the New York Islanders were on hand with give-away items for the attendees. The car show included classics, exotics, and other unique vehicles on display for the evening’s crowd.
“I am blown away, once again, by the outpouring of support from so many different car clubs and car enthusiasts showing up to support the Michael Magro Foundation Annual Car Show,” said Galati when asked about the turnout amid the pandemic. “We were so fortunate to have a ton of beautiful cars on display, including some really rare American Muscle cars and exotics. These are challenging times, but Long Islanders show up.”
Ruisi, a long-time car enthusiast, was effusive with his praise for all of those who came out to support the Foundation and see the remarkable vehicles on display.
“I want to thank my friends who attended and generously gifted their time and money to this wonderful cause,” he said. “I would also like to thank all of the event sponsors and vendors for their continued support. And special thanks to all of the friends and families who volunteered to make this event a huge success. Every dollar raised makes a real difference in the lives of the families supported by Michael Magro Foundation.”
The event has raised more than $8,500 for the Michael Magro Foundation programs, shy of the $10,000 goal. The link for the event remains open for those unable to join the fun due to COVID-19. For those wishing to support the event, please visit: michaelmagrofoundation.com/product-category/donation
