Scholarship gala in the works



February 28, 2017 - 12:00 AM

Attendees of Allen Community College’s Red Scholarship Gala March 25 will be treated to a memorable night of dining, music and mingling with former Kansas City Chief players.
“This is something we have never had in our community,” Aimee Thompson, director of development, said of the opportunity for guests to meet and have their pictures taken with the professional athletes.
Doors open at 5 p.m., with dinner at 6 p.m.
Rookies Sports Bar and Grill is catering the meal and Mike Jewell will provide the dance music.
The evening’s events include live and silent auctions.
Advance tickets are $25. Tickets purchased after March 13 are $30. Tickets can be purchased by calling Thompson at 620-365-5116 ext. 218 or by email at
“We encourage people to come in their favorite red or to get creative with the color red but typically the evening is business casual,” Thompson said of the expected attire.
All proceeds from the gala go toward student scholarships.
