As many of you who attended last year’s event will be aware, we hold a charity auction as a part of the formalities at our evening function. This year, one of the items to be auctioned is a brunch on Sunday the 1st of March (That’s the day after the ride) with Cure Brain Cancer Director and Ambassador, Marcella Zemanek. Below is a brief summary of Marcella’s many achievements. For the lucky (or deep pocketed) winner of this auction, the opportunity will prove to be a fascinating and insightful look into Marcella’s life!
Marcella has an extensive media career having spent 30 years as a respected radio producer.
Her career has included working with Australia’s top rating national radio shows hosted by John Laws, Alan Jones, Brian Bury and John Stanley. She also enjoyed working on her late husband Stan Zemanek’s night time program, contributing theatre and film reviews.
Marcella spent five years in the United States with Stan where she was involved in broadcasting news and sport back to Australia and New Zealand and working on The Producers, which involved organising interviews with international talent including Jane Fonda, Michael Caine, Anthony Newley and Sylvester Stallone.
Marcella has been a Director and Ambassador of Cure Brain Cancer Foundation for the past seven years.
In her role as Ambassador for the Foundation, Marcella has spoken to many patients and their families and now realises how important their story is for the creative acceleration of treatments for brain cancer.
Marcella’s husband Stan Zemanek was diagnosed with a GBM Grade IV in May 2006; he lost the battle in July 2007. Since his passing Marcella has been on a crusade to support patient advocacy, and to support the global collaborative attack on brain cancer.
Seven years ago Marcella had a dream even though it was a tall order, to address the grim outlook for patients diagnosed with brain cancer. Today she is just as motivated as ever to help co-ordinate this outcome.

We are making a difference, The Western Advocate, Bathurst’s local paper has this story, just follow this link.
Hello everyone, I spoke with the weather forecasters at the Sydney office of the Bureau Of Meteorology this morning. Unfortunately all crystal balls were away being serviced, polished or otherwise unavailable HOWEVER the official prediction for the remainder of February is, and I quote, “Tending to be dry”
Not as accurate as the piece of string on the fence, which I have been reliably told is currently dry and limp, yet promising none the less.
REMEMBER: If you want to have your official AL’s Ride T shirt, Polo shirt, Dress Shirt, Cap or Bucket Hat made and delivered to you prior to Al’s Ride you need to register to get a T shirt with your registration of order through our merchandise page before midnight tomorrow night (10 February) so that we can have them made and delivered.
WE WILL: Continue to accept registrations up to the day of the event, obviously, the more notice that we have the better we can organise ourselves, catering, ride stickers and the like to make this event just that little bit better
WE WILL: Continue to take merchandise orders after the 10th of February, but not be able to get shirts, caps and hat to you until after the event.
WE HAVE: Already sold many candles, which have been donated by my darling wife, Al’s Nana. There are limited numbers left which can be ordered before or at the event.
Hi, found a website today www.pinky.com.au Don’t know he history behind the name but they have links to all manner of car and motorcycle shows, displays and events. They have added a link to Al’s Ride which is great. If you have any mount of 2 or 4 wheeled petrol running through your veins, check the site out.
As you my or my not be aware, we are a fledgling event with our policy of supplying quality merchandise as ordered. We are not in a position to purchase a large stock of clothing and other merchandise which my or my not be sold with excess stock o be stored etc . We believe this policy maintains our integrity and adds to the exclusiveness of being able to have a product which will not be duplicated or sold at subsequent events at a bargain price to clear old stock.
In consultation with our suppliers, we will only be able to guarantee delivery of items before the event if ordered on or before the 10th of February, 2015.
If there are sufficient orders after this date for clothing/merchandise we will place an additional order however there my be some upward variation in price due to increased costs involved with setting up for a smaller production run.
Being able to wear items produced exclusively for the event, at the event is a great feeling as is seeing and/or meeting up it others who have supported the event in months or years to come.
