The entire event is being run in conjunction with the Mark Scheifele Golf Tournament in support of KidSport Winnipeg’s initiative to help remove the financial barriers preventing children from playing organized sport.   At last year’s tournament, Kevin Stobbe took the winning bid on an auction prize that will see him join Scheifele, Morrissey and Richert at the track for a fun morning learning how to pilot a Porsche around the race circuit.
