7th Annual Pink & Purple Polyester Party
The grooviest party of the year!
Presented by CivicPlus
Friday, April 6, 2018
K-State Alumni Center
Dig out your polyester bell bottoms and platform shoes, and disco for a cure with Kansas City band Disco Dick & the Mirrorballs. Cast your vote in the "Off the Hook" bra art contest and enjoy heavy hors d'oeuvres, late-night munchies and a cash bar all catered by Della Voce, as well as the costume contest and fun photo station! Party with your friends while helping K-State fight cancer!
The Pink & Purple Polyester Party was started by Dave Lewis, a well-known voice and entertainer in the Manhattan area, as a fun way to raise money for K-State cancer research and celebrate the life of his late wife, Elena, who died of breast cancer in 2006. Lewis is a morning show host for News Radio KMAN, the public address announcer for K-State Football and Men’s Basketball, and the owner of Dave Lewis Entertainment. The party is now planned by a group of Manhattan business owners, listed below.
Make your individual ($60) or 10-person table ($500) reservations at our K-State Fights Cancer Webstore powered by N Zone, or call the Johnson Cancer Research Center, 785-532-6705. Then, just check in at the party. Each guest receives two drink coupons. Table purchasers receive Cool Cat sponsor recognition.

'Off the Hook' bra art contest
Businesses craft work-of-art bras as a nod to breast cancer survivors. After the bras are modeled by good-natured, fully-dressed men, the one that gets the most votes in the form of donations wins. View past bras in our photos linked above. View this year's bras in advance of the party at the Off the Hook Bra Crawl (described below) and on display at participating downtown businesses.
