Washburn Tech Car Show & BBQ

9a-230p

Washburn Tech
Washburn Tech is holding its 15th annual Car Show, BBQ and Fair from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. on Friday, May 9, on the Washburn Tech campus at 5724 S.W. Huntoon St. The public is invited to the event, which is a fundraiser for the Washburn Tech Care Closet.

Auto enthusiasts will enjoy the five show entry classes: custom/low riders, antique cars and trucks, muscle cars, motorcycles and special interest. For those who’d rather fly or climb than drive, the Kansas Air National Guard is bringing a helicopter simulator and the U.S. Army is setting up a climbing wall. The event offers a carnival atmosphere which includes a dunk tank, a heavy equipment rodeo, a car bash, the golf ball contest and even 3 vs. 3 basketball.

In addition, Recycled Rides will give away a refurbished vehicle to a family in need at 9:00 a.m. in the Auto Collision lab on the east side of campus. This marks the eighth car donated by Washburn Tech’s Recycled Rides program.

The Care Closet, now in its 26th year of operation, provides short-term financial assistance to Washburn tech students who need help to complete their education. Aid can take the form of gas money, bus fare or a bag of groceries.

Washburn Tech offers 30 career programs in one of five divisions: Construction, Health Care, Human Services, Technology and Transportation. Short-term, continuing education courses also are available along with custom courses for business and industry. Washburn Tech, which serves both high school and adult students, has an 81% graduation rate which is the highest in the state among all universities, community colleges and technical institutions.

Midland Care 2014 Celebration Walk

Friday, May 9, 2014 6pm-Dusk

Midland Care, 200 SW Frazier Cir, Topeka, KS 66606
Join Us For The 18th Annual Celebration Walk
May 9, 2014
6pm - Dusk
This family friendly event will take place on our Topeka Campus, located at 200 SW Frazier Circle. Participants are encouraged to bring a lawn chair for the event. This evening stroll-a-thon will have activities for the whole family as we gather to remember those who have left a special mark on our hearts. We remember them.
Be an active part of the Celebration Walk by becoming a Walk Champion and raising funds on behalf of Midland Care. These funds are used to provide services for those who cannot afford them. We promise to never turn anyone away who cannot afford services, your participation makes this possible.
Midland Care extends a challenge to all to think about what our community would be like without the services Midland Care offers and then to get involved in raising funds that touch so many. Midland Care never turns anyone away because they can’t pay for services. The funds raised through the Celebration Walk between now and May 10th ensures this promise is kept. Those interested in becoming a Walk Champion and fundraising on behalf of Midland Care can find more information at their website www.midlandcareconnection.org/14Walk
The Celebration Walk also will include the purchase of luminaries for $10.00 to be placed on the grounds in memory of anyone you would like to remember. Veterans remembered by a luminary can be identified with their branch of service indicated on the luminary card. These names will be read at the closing ceremony that evening. This is a family friendly stroll-a-thon event, featuring food, activities and a children’s area. Entertainers donate their time for the evening, and participants can hear a variety of music.
For additional information on the Midland Care programs, please call (800) 491-3691 or (785) 232-2044. You also can visit the website at www.midlandcareconnection.org.
