On April 2, 2010 Spencer Scheil was involved in a tragic UTV accident. Spencer loved the outdoors and any activities that involved motorsports. Spencer was also very active in school, where he was on the school council. Spencer was “selfless, thoughtful, caring, loving, humourous, supportive, kind hearted, devoted, gentle, generous, and friendly. In Spencer’s honor, the Scheil family plans to hold a yearly benefit and raise money for a scholarship in his name at the La Crescent High School, the Diabetes Foundation as well as other charitable organizations in the community.
This year, the Spencer Scheil Memorial Blizzard Ride and Fundraiser will be on Saturday, January 29th at the La Crescent Snowmobile Club. The ride starts at 11am, with the route to be determined on the day of the ride.
There will be food from 4:30pm until 7pm, and a DJ with music and prizes from 7pm until 10pm.
Prizes include a 2011 Polaris 550 IQ Shift Snowmobile, $1,000, $750, $500 and more. Tickets for the fundraiser are $20 and include your admission, food, and entertainment.
