Solitaire Homes Melbourne Cup Race Day 2009The Solitaire Homes Melbourne Cup Race Day in 2009 was the perfect way to celebrate the race that stops the nation.

Solitaire Homes sponsored the day and raised much needed funds for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation by selling official Melbourne Cup Race Day pins.



Angelo presenting chequeAngelo Turcin – Managing Director of Canberra builders Solitaire Homes Australia – lost his best mate, 35-year-old John Benkovic, to cancer nearly five years ago. Angelo took John’s death hard and recognising the significant number of Australians who passed away from cancer decided he wanted to raise money to help research into the disease.

In a truly terrific effort, Angelo undertook a fundraising campaign in his local state of ACT, raising an amazing $40,130 for cancer research! The Australian Cancer Research Foundation greatly appreciates Angelo’s wonderful efforts in raising these funds and also for choosing the Australian Cancer Research Foundation as the recipient. Big thanks to Angelo, Solitaire Homes and all who supported his fundraising.
