Community choreography: 'Swing' into action at Habitat Hoedown

Submitted by Brandon Savage

Under a canopy of twinkling lights, community members gather, share, and celebrate the collective effort towards creating brighter futures at the Habitat Hoedown.

K-State faculty and staff are invited to attend the Habitat Hoedown from 6-10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10, at Lazy T Ranch, for a night of dinner and country dancing aimed at making strides in local housing initiatives. This event underscores the vital role K-State faculty and staff have played in advancing housing solutions through the Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity.

K-State's recent international recognition for innovative housing design and construction, led by the collaborative efforts of students, faculty and community partners, sets a precedent of academia extending beyond the classroom to address real-world challenges​. The Habitat Hoedown serves as a celebration of these accomplishments, where your foot-tapping to lively tunes reflects the heartbeat of community engagement.

Your attendance at the Habitat Hoedown is more than a night of fun; it's a step toward supporting the Pathways to Homeownership program. The program aims to equip veterans and seniors with the necessary tools to own and sustain their homes, echoing K-State's ethos of fostering community development and outreach.

Make your way to the dance floor, and let's showcase the rhythm of K-State's commitment to community service. Your ticket purchase is a direct contribution to a cause that resonates with the core values of our institution. Purchase your ticket online and let's craft a narrative of positive community impact, one dance step at a time. The cost is $40 for adults and $25 for students.
