PTK auction raises nearly $1,600


With 21 packages to bid on, Cowley College’s Phi Theta Kappa Auction raised nearly $1,600. The event PTKwas held Thursday evening in the Earle N. Wright Community Room.

A total of 43 tickets were sold for the event, which had 24 PTK members on hand to assist with the festivities.

“What a great night,” PTK co-sponsor Deb Layton said. “We had so much fun. Everyone loved the dinner Robert Rogers and Great Western Dining provided, and our entertainment was spectacular.”

Cowley student KC Udarbe performed on guitar, while Kayla McLaughlin conducted a monologue.

Brauntez Fair and Paige Karnes performed a duet and local middle school student, Italia Perez, who was recently on the Spanish television broadcast of The Voice Kids, also performed.

Cowley faculty, staff and students, along with local businesses and community members with businesses from Ark City and Winfield to Newkirk and Stillwater, provided items for the auction.

Mariah Regier was chairperson for the donations committee and collected a large part of the donations herself. Tania Garcia, Alecia Henson, and Caitlynn McVey were leaders in ticket sells.

Layton said the event continues to grow, and she looks forward to continue success in coming years.

“The outpouring of support from Cowley is astounding,” Layton said.
