Tonight's proceeds from local bar to fight childhood cancer

By Courtney Frantz

The more Manhattanites eat and drink tonight, the more potential lives will be saved. Kite's Bar and Grille is teaming up with K-State's Up 'til Dawn student organization to raise funds for the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

From 1-8 p.m. tonight 10 percent of food proceeds will benefit St. Jude, followed by donations regarding house specials starting at 10 p.m. The Kite's fundraiser is in addition to the Josh Abbott Band benefit concert scheduled for April 20 at Manhattan's Wareham Opera House.
