Rock Chalk Ball


Big Jay and Baby Jay at Rock Chalk Ball

Thanks for another amazing Rock Chalk Ball!

Since 1996, the Rock Chalk Ball has been the premier fundraising event in Kansas City for the KU Alumni Association, helping to advance our mission of strengthening our beloved University of Kansas. The 19th annual Rock Chalk Ball was held on Saturday, April 26, at the Overland Park Convention Center.

Rock Chalk Ball was hosted by event chairs Laura and Todd Sutherland, assoc., and featured special guest and emcee Steve Doocy, j’79, co-host of “Fox & Friends” on the Fox News Channel.

More than 900 Jayhawks gathered to bid on distinctive items in the silent auction and enjoy dinner, dancing and KU camaraderie.

Attendees also walked the red carpet and posed for photos. Party pictures are available for free download here.

In keeping with the Alumni Association’s mission to strengthen KU, proceeds from the 2014 Rock Chalk Ball will be used to enhance and expand outstanding alumni programs that unite Jayhawks, provide networking opportunities, and engage alumni in student recruitment and other advocacy on behalf of KU.
