Polyester Party and Pink Rodeo raised almost $20,000!

You could feel the grooviness in the air at the Pink & Purple Polyester Party April 10. About 200 party-goers, decked out in pink, purple and retro attire, filled the Houston Street Ballroom in support of K-State cancer research! They boogied down to live music from Disco Dick & the Mirrorballs, cheered on costume contest participants, and stuffed cash into blinged-out bras created by local businesses and modeled by good-natured K-State students! (Della Voce’s bra, with its martini glass bra-cups, won first place.)

The party raised $13,120! We extend big thanks to the wonderful planning committee, party founder and emcee Dave Lewis, major sponsor CivicPlus and the other sponsors, and all the party-goers and other supporters. It was a truly unique and fun party! You can view photos on our Facebook.

We think next year’s party will be even more dy-no-mite! It is tentatively set for Fri., April 15, 2016!
