Cats for Kids Tailgate

K-State Family, please join us* on October 21st for a Cats for Kids Tailgate Party benefitting the Ronald McDonald House in Topeka! We will be serving delicious hamburgers and hot dogs, along with chips, cookies, and ice-cold beverages. We are asking for a free-will monetary or material donation in return.

Every penny we raise will go directly to supporting families staying at the Ronald McDonald House and meeting their needs.
