Annual Powercat Auction and golf tourney April 27

By The Mercury

As fans gear up for K-State’s 2012 Purple/White spring game, activities for Wildcat Nation will kick off the day before as the athletic department will host the 28th annual Powercat Auction and golf tournament on Friday, April 27.

The scramble-format golf tournament at Colbert Hills Golf Course will kick-off the weekend with a 9 a.m. registration period before a shotgun start at 10 a.m.

The entry fee for the tournament is $125.00 per player, which includes range balls, event souvenirs, green fees, golf cart, prizes and lunch.  The tournament format is a four-person scramble, and either teams or individual golfers may sign up. 

The tournament deadline for reservations is this Friday.

Questions regarding the golf tournament should be directed to Bernie Haney at (785) 565-1719 or

Later that evening, 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 6:45 p.m., while a buffet dinner will be served from 6:30 p.m. until 8:15 p.m. The live auction portion of the event will begin at 7:45 p.m.

The Powercat Auction, the department’s single largest fundraising event, supports the Ahearn Fund, K-State’s National Fund for Student-Athlete Excellence.

Last year’s event raised more than $275,000.
