A boat owned by the family of Winnipeg-born Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews is going up on the auction block for a worthwhile cause.
The 1935 Cossey Replica boat will be auctioned off by Adesa Auctions on Tuesday, with proceeds benefiting Variety, the Children’s Charity of Manitoba, as part of their Bids for Kids program. Funds raised will support the organization’s Come One-Come all Gala.
The boat packs a 250 horsepower 327 Chevy V8 engine with leather upholstery, and is trimmed with rare chrome hardware.
Those wishing to place a pre-bid on the item can call (204) 631-3850, or e-mail Kerry.Beaton@ADESA.com.
The public auction is set for 6:15 p.m.
