The purpose of this fundraiser is to:
Generate funds for research in pediatric retinal disease performed by the Pediatric Retinal Research Foundation (PRRF) centered at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan.
Provide a forum for car enthusiasts to interact with visually challenged patients of all ages.
Provide a morning educational session with brunch to explain about the studies being performed at the PRRF research laboratory.
Provide a forum for visually impaired children and adults to interact with trained mechanics from Garage Kept Motors to learn about engines and car design and hands –on interaction with classic and new automobiles.
Provide an exhibit with military and public safety vehicles for visually and non-visually challenged participants to interact with.
Have a live and silent auction of automobile related activities, adventures (race tracks) and items/memorabilia to generate funds for the Research Laboratory of the PRRF
