Wabash CannonBall Kansas City

The eleventh annual Wabash CannonBall Kansas City will take place Friday, Feb. 24, 2017, at the Overland Park Convention Center.

Kansas City-area K-Staters turn out for the Wabash CannonBall gala event each year to raise money for area high school students who plan to attend K-State. The black tie gala is always a grand time for Wildcats.

To date, the gala has funded more than 370 scholarships for Kansas City-area students totaling $932,500. The Wabash CannonBall Kansas City also has funded a scholarship endowment fund totaling nearly $2.0 million.
