TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)- Active leaders in the Topeka community raised money for a good cause early Saturday evening.

About 600 people attended the Topeka Active 20-30 Club Children's Benefit Auction and Gala which was held at the Downtown Ramada.

It started at 5:30 with the event's honoree, Kansas State University former football player Kevin Lockett. He received the community service award.

"20/30 is such a great group and they do such amazing things. I think for the community and I've always been about you know people who give back and help out with the community. Been talking to Mike Moss quite a bit and about a lot of the things that they do uh and it just made sense for me to come down and to to experience this big Gala where they raise a lot of money to help support the local Topeka area," said Lockett.

Funds raised will be distributed to various organizations for programs that benefit the youth of the community. The Topeka Active Club is made up of 65 men ages 20 to 39.
