The Kilgore College Foundation will host an athletic fundraiser Saturday the size of Texas featuring a live auction, silent auction and a new event this year – armadillo races.
“A Texas-Sized Fundraiser” is set for 6 p.m. Saturday, April 27, at the Longview Exhibit Building at the Longview Fairgrounds.
Tickets for the event are $50 per person and include dinner and a bidder number.
The event will also feature Bingo, armadillo races with celebrity jockeys and live music by the band, Lees & Co.
The night is sure to be filled with excitement as attendees participate in a live auction for items such as a week’s stay in a vacation home in Mexico, designer purses, artwork, sports memorabilia, firearms and much more.
“We are thankful for all of the people and businesses donating time and auction items so we can make this fundraiser a night to remember,” said Jimmy Rieves, KC athletic director. “We are doing everything possible to ensure our student-athletes are taken care of and are so thankful for the local support we have received.”
Rieves said that the fundraiser is all about helping the college’s best assets – its students.
“Many times, our student-athletes have the desire, but not the financial resources to attend college,” Rieves said. “Money raised will directly help our student-athletes have a better chance of being successful and fulfilling the college’s mission of student access, success and completion through collaborative partnerships.”
All proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit KC student-athletes.
