Family Events Committee

The Family Events Committee was born out of the Youth Fun Zone sports clinic, which was co-hosted by Wichita Catbackers and K-State Athletics for the last few years. Although, the Youth Fun Zone has been folded into our new Summer Catbacker Tour programming, the Family Events Committee is here to stay! We are following the lead from K-State Athletics to “fan-raise” rather than fund-raise. With that in mind, we are planning and promoting exciting programming that is fresh and with a new focus of family friendly activities to promote increased involvement from the future of the K-State Family. In 2016, the committee put together a “K-State Day” at the Ballpark during a Wichita WingNuts game during the summer and we already kicked off the New Year with an event in January 2017 at (2) Paint the Towne locations in Wichita! The painting event was well attended and provided a comfortable environment to socialize with other K-Staters and select your choice of K-State themed painting. The committee anticipates planning an event for late summer 2017 before school and football season are back in full swing and has a goal to try and have 3-4 events per year going forward.
If you have any ideas for events you would like to see on the program for the future or would like to volunteer on the committee, please contact the Committee Chair, Tyler Dehn at or (316) 806-1232.
