It's my understanding that at the beginning of the football season, KU allowed drinking to raise money for the marching band. How much money did they raise?
KU officials said the total raised by the promotion was $9,797.50.
State policies allow alcohol to be consumed on university property only when it is included with a fund-raising event. At first, KU officials planned to use the money for the marching band. After Sept. 11, they switched to use tailgating as a fund-raiser for the victims of terrorism. Of the total raised, $466 will go to the KU band and $9,331.50 to the Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund, spearheaded by former Kansas Sen. Bob Dole and former President Clinton.
