Powercat Auction Set for April 24

March 11, 2015
MANHATTAN, Kan. - As fans gear up for K-State's 2015 Purple/White spring game at Sporting Park, activities for Wildcat Nation will kick off the day before in Manhattan as the athletics department will host the 31st Annual Powercat Auction on Friday, April 24.

The Powercat Auction will be held at Bramlage Coliseum with doors to the arena opening at 5 p.m. Silent auctions will begin immediately and wrap up at 6:35 p.m., while a buffet dinner will be served from 6:15 p.m. until 7:45 p.m. The live auction portion of the event will begin at 7:45 p.m.

The Powercat Auction, the department's largest annual fundraising event, supports the Ahearn Fund, K-State's National Fund for Student-Athlete Excellence. Last year's event raised more than $430,000 to directly enhance the student-athlete experience for all Wildcat student-athletes.

The auction will feature over 100 live and silent auction items, along with a vacation getaway raffle.

The Ahearn Fund is also offering an exclusive opportunity to Powercat Auction guests attending the spring game in Kansas City the following day. For an additional $25 fans can receive round-trip transportation via chartered bus to Sporting Park from Bramlage Coliseum as well as snacks and drinks on each leg of the trip. Tickets may be reserved during online registration or by calling the Ahearn Fund office at 1.888.232.9074. Spring game tickets are not included but can be purchased by calling 800.221.CATS. Fans are encouraged to act fast as fewer than 1,500 tickets remain and are expected to sell quickly. K-State and Sporting Kansas City will open a limited number of standing-room only tickets once all public seats have been sold.
