Adults spend "Evening as a Child" to raise money for children with disabilities

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Grown-ups had the chance to act like kids Saturday night — and it was all for a great cause!

This year’s theme for the Capper Foundation's "Evening as a Child" at the Expocentre was "Land of Kanz-Oz."

Adults enjoyed food, live and silent auctions, and best of all — games and activities that brought them back to their childhood.

Proceeds from Saturday’s event will help provide scholarships for children with disabilities.

"Children that need services, pediatric services, but don't have the ability to pay or their insurance doesn't cover it, this raises money for scholarships to make sure they get the services they need,” Jim Leiker, President & CEO, Capper Foundation.

Leiker said this years' event will raise between $100,000 and $150,000 dollars for scholarships.
