Cardiac Screening Day @ KSU Alumni Center
Sep 29 – Sep 30 all-day

The Anthony Bates Foundation is coming back to Kansas in a big way!  On Sunday, September 29th we will be hosting our 13thannual Cardiac Screening Day at the K-State Alumni Center in Manhattan, KS.  Attached is our flyer and below, a link to our PSA video with Coach Bill Snyder promoting our program.  Please help us spread the word by watching our video, adding it to your website (if you have one) and sharing the flyer with your friends, too!

The screening is open to youth 12 & up & their families.  Even adults are eligible to have a heart test.  The program is FREE but we do ask for a nominal $20 suggested donation to keep the program going and support our efforts year round.  Your help in sharing the word with your friends, family & co-workers would be greatly appreciated.
Appointments are highly recommended.  We anticipate a full house and would like to accommodate everyone as quickly and smoothly as possible.  Below is the link to set up appointments:

The Fox on the Fairway @ Manhattan Arts Center
Feb 27 @ 7:30 pm – Mar 8 @ 2:00 pm

The Fox on the Fairway – a play by Ken Ludwig

It’s the 47th Annual Interclub Tournament between Quail Valley Country Club and Crouching Squirrel Country Club.  Henry Bingham has arranged for the city’s best player to play for his club (Quail Valley), and makes a large bet that his team will prevail…breaking a five year losing streak and saving his job.  His counterpart at Crouching Squirrel (Dickie Bell) has gotten the star player to switch sides on the eve of the match.  Bingham must now try to find a suitable replacement, or risk losing the match, his job, and a large sum of money.  Perhaps that replacement player is right under his nose.  Add in romantic hijinks, a lovers’ quarrel, and surprises…and you’ve got “The Fox on the Fairway”!
Student and Military discounts are available.
