Kansas State University fans can gather for fellowship, food, fun and a fundraiser Wednesday when the Power Cat-backers of Southeast Kansas annual banquet returns to Iola.
The banquet brings together local alumni, supporters and prospective students with current K-State student-athletes, athletic coaches and other officials at the Iola Rec Center, beginning with a social hour at 5 p.m. followed by the banquet at 6 p.m. Wednesday. The menu is a taco bar. The event includes speakers, a live auction with unique items, a silent auction, raffles, scholarships and activities for kids.
The banquet is a fundraiser for the Ahearn Fund, which increases awareness and support for K-State and its athletic programs. In past years, Coach Bill Snyder has attended but Sager said neither he nor basketball coach Bruce Weber are expected for this event.
