Westar Energy Inc. helped kick-off United Way's annal fund raising activities today.
The event began at noon on the 9th level of the parking structure at 818 S. Kansas Ave. with a car show and an employee tricycle race.
The finalists in the tricycle race were decided by fellow Westar employees through donations given to the United Way.
Last year, Westar Energy employees gave more that $5,260. They hope to surpass that this year by at least 5%.
