MANHATTAN – K-State Athletics announced today that the 2020 Powercat Auction, slated for Aug. 29, will remain as scheduled but will move to a virtual format.
“We know K-Staters look forward to this event each and every year and wanted to be able to provide an opportunity for them to bid on unique items all while getting together virtually to celebrate the beginning of the 2020-21 year,” Athletics Director Gene Taylor said. “As much as we wanted to host the annual event in person, it was in the best interest and safety of our fans and donors to shift this year’s event to the virtual format. The Powercat Auction annually is a major fundraising event for K-State Athletics and the Ahearn Fund that traditionally brings hundreds of our terrific donors together for one special evening, and we look forward to reuniting in person for the Auction next spring.”
The virtual program will be held at 6 p.m. CDT, Saturday, August 29, and fans can participate by visiting k-statesports.com. More information surrounding the auction, including a list of all items available, as well as bidding details can be found here. Bidding will go live at 8 a.m. CDT, Monday, August 24, and close at 8 p.m. CDT, Saturday, August 29.
