A busy weekend is upon us here at K-State, and many of you already may be on your way to Manhattan for tonight's 28th-annual Powercat Auction at Bramlage. Another sellout crowd will be on hand, and we hope to see you all on campus over the next several days as we head into an exciting weekend of events. Here are the highlights and a breakdown of the events:
Powercat Auction and Golf Tournament
We had a great turnout at this morning's Powercat Golf Tournament at Colbert Hills Golf Course to kick off the weekend. In just a little bit, we will fill Bramlage for the Powercat Auction, which remains our department's single-largest fundraising event and supports the Ahearn Fund, our National Fund for Student-Athlete Excellence. Last year's event raised more than $275,000 to directly enhance the student-athlete experience for all Wildcat student-athletes, and all of our Powercat Members ($300 donation level and above) will be a part of this year's event.

Baseball Opens Series with Oklahoma State
For those fans unable to attend the Powercat Auction, head over to Tointon Stadium for tonight's 6:30 p.m., matchup with the Cowboys. It's Ladies Night at the ballpark as fans can purchase a $10 ticket package that includes one general admission bench ticket and one pink K-State baseball hat. Additionally, Manhattan area vendors will be available during the regularly-scheduled pregame tailgate on Friday beginning at 5 p.m., directly behind the stadium off College Avenue. The pregame tailgate includes a hot dog meal for $4 and a cheeseburger meal for $5.
