St. Fabian Catholic Church will hold a fundraiser for the daughter of Bob and Rose Cipriano, victims of an attack in April at their home in Farmington Hills.

The June 7 fundraiser is meant to raise funds to guarantee tuition for the 8-year-old girl's education through 8th grade at a school of her choice.

The event is called "An Evening for Isabella" and will be held at 6 p.m. at Regency Manor at 25228 W. 12 Mile Road in Southfield.

Guests are encouraged to wear purple or pink. Admission is $125 per person.

Bob Cipriano was killed April 16 at his home in a brutal baseball bat attack. His wife, Rose Cipriano, and 17-year-old son, Sal, were left in critical condition.

Rose was transported to a rehabilitation center this past week as she continues to recover from her injuries. Sal remains in critical condition.

The couple's 19-year-old son, Tucker Cipriano, and his 20-year-old friend, Mitchell Young, face murder charges after police said the men admitted to the attack.

Sal's twin brother, Tanner, also was at the home when the attack happened. Police said he called 911 from a closet and his sister allowed police into the home where they reported finding a gruesome murder scene.

Young was arrested at the home. Tucker was arrested hours later at a home in Keego Harbor. Both have a preliminary examination scheduled for May 23.

Cipriano son tweets about mother on Mother's Day:

Tanner Cipriano tweeted about his mother this past weekend:

"I've never enjoyed hearing my mom's voice as much as I did today. And I'm happy to say she's just as bossy as ever. Happy Mother's Day mom."
