As fans gear up for K-State’s 2017 Purple/White spring game, activities for Wildcat Nation will kick off the day before as K-State Athletics will host the 33rd Annual Powercat Auction on Friday, April 21st.

The Powercat Auction will be held at Bramlage Coliseum with doors to the arena opening at 5:30 p.m. The silent auction will begin immediately and wrap up at 6:40 p.m., while a buffet dinner will be served from 6:30 p.m. until 7:45 p.m. The live auction portion of the event will begin at 8 p.m. The auction will feature over 100 live and silent auction items, featuring a number of unique K-State items.

The Powercat Auction is the department's largest annual fundraising event and supports the Ahearn Fund, K-State's National Fund for Student-Athlete Excellence. Last year's event raised more than $400,000 to directly enhance the student-athlete experience for all 450 K-State student-athletes.

Space is limited to the first 500 guests, so get your tickets and/or sponsorship in today! Tickets start at $150. Please contact the Ahearn Fund at 888.232.9074 if you have any questions or need to place your order.
