Rock Chalk Ball is this Saturday!
The popular Kansas City event, now in its 19th year, is officially sold out for the first time in history. One of the most-anticipated components of the black-tie event is the auction, where attendees have the opportunity to satisfy their shopping habit while supporting their favorite university.
Here’s a look at five unique items in this year’s auction:
1. Marching band bag
These unique tote bags are made from actual KU Marching Band uniforms! KU Bands has donated two bags, each of a different style. These bags are perfect for the Jayhawk who already has everything, and they’re a great conversation starter!
2. A year of pizza
Like pizza and beer? Who doesn’t. The winner of this auction can make a trip to Westport every month for an entire year to enjoy a large pizza from Joe’s Pizza and two pitchers of beer at Kelly’s. That’s twelve pizzas and 24 pitchers of beer, folks.
3. KU rocking horse
Our creative director, Susan Younger, isn’t the only artist in her family. This adorable wooden rocking horse, handcrafted by her husband, Jerry, will convince any toddler to be a Future Jayhawk.
4. Crimson and blue ceramic stilettos
Here’s another unusual addition for your KU collection—a pair of ceramic stilettos adorned with a Jayhawk theme. If only you could actually wear them…
5. Basketball boy/girl
No, you aren’t bidding on an actual child. Give your future Jayhawk the opportunity of a lifetime- the chance to be a ball boy or ball girl at a 2014-15 men’s basketball game!
These are just a few of the many fun items that will be auctioned off this Saturday at the Ball. The silent auction will take place during the cocktail hour. Stay tuned this week to read about more auction items, or check out the full list.
Bidders, take your mark, and don’t forget your wallet!
