TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A generous donation will help a local non-profit assist the homeless and underprivileged in Topeka.

The Washburn Student Bar Associated Thursday presented a check for $5,000 to Silverbackks.

The law students raised the money through their annual Barrister's Ball. The event includes a silent auction, with items donated by local vendors, law school alumni and faculty.

Each year, the Washburn law students pick a different organization to benefit from the event.
