C.A.A.T. planning week full of events
The Cowley Activity Awareness Team has several events planned this week on the school’s main campus in Arkansas City, beginning with today’s C.A.A.T. Cab.
To go along with Safe Spring Break Week, the C.A.A.T. group is conducting C.A.A.T. Cab, which plays off the cable TV game show CASH Cab. C.A.A.T. members are driving golf carts and picking up students at various locations on campus. While in the cart, C.A.A.T. members will give those hitching a ride an opportunity to answer questions concerning alcohol awareness and safety.
On Thursday, C.A.A.T. will host guest speaker Jared Estes at 7 p.m. in the Earle N. Wright Community Room. Estes will share with the students the impacts of Drinking and Driving.
“This a powerful real life testimony from someone right here in Kansas whose life was impacted by a Drunk Driver,” C.A.A.T. sponsor Charlee Wilson said.
The event is free and open to the public.
During this event C.A.A.T. will be serving mock tails, handing out “Sober And I Know It” t-shirts to CASH Cab winners, and there will also be drawings for free movie tickets for those who attend.
On Friday at 4 p.m., the C.A.A.T.’s In A Box: Awareness For Hunger and Homelessness event will begin at the Cowley Athletic Complex. C.A.AT. members, along with other students from the campus, will spend 24 hours in cardboard boxes to raise awareness of hunger and homelessness issues. C.A.A.T. will be taking monetary and canned good donations which will be distributed to local meal ministries and food banks.
