Annual Pig Out event includes raffle prize

By Becky Fitzgerald on March 22, 2018

The 8th annual Pig Out for Parkinson’s, benefiting Meadowlark Parkinson’s Program, is set for Thursday, April 19, at Cox Bros. BBQ. A raffle prize is again part of the fun with proceeds also supporting the Parkinson’s Program. Raffle tickets for a K-State Football Experience package will be sold beginning Monday, March 26. We’re pleased to announce the prize winner will receive:

~ Two seats in the Kansas State University president’s suite for the Nov. 17 game at Bill Snyder Family Stadium vs. Texas Tech. Your hosts will be Richard “Dick” Myers and his wife, Mary Jo. President Myers, K-State’s 14th president, is a retired four-star general in the United States Air Force. The Myerses are K-State graduates. The weather on Nov. 17 could be cold, rainy, snowy or all three, so viewing the game from the comfort of a suite in such good company, will be … Sweet! Our thanks to First Lady Mary Jo Myers for the donation of the passes.
   “We wish you great success with this event! I have friends with Parkinson’s, and we are grateful for what you do for people that deal with all the negative effects of this life-impacting disease,” Mary Jo Myers said.
~ A new pair of Nike Cortez shoes, the shoes Coach Bill Snyder famously wears on the sideline on game days, autographed by the Wildcats’ Hall of Fame coach. The shoes are in Coach Snyder’s size, 9 1/2. The shoes come inside a display case.

~ A $100 Academy Sports + Outdoors gift card. This retailer, located on Tuttle Creek Blvd., offers K-State apparel and tailgating items as well as a large selection of athletic shoes and sporting goods.

Raffle tickets are $1 each or six for $5. Purchase them at the Hospitality Desk, Verna Belle’s Café, Cox Bros BBQ and from Parkinson’s Program participants. The winner will be drawn at 8:30 p.m. on April 19 at Cox Bros. BBQ. The winner need not be present to win.
