GEARing UP for Worlds

Loading Events
This event has passed.

Our Wa-Nee Robotics program is one of the best across the globe. They’re consistently sending multiple teams to compete against 40+ countries on the Worlds stage.  The Nappanee Noon Kiwanis are wanting to support this successful program by hosting an evening of dinner, drinks, trivia, and an online auction. Come hear from speakers, socialize with friends, play trivia, try out our world-qualifying robots, and bid on incredible auction items.  Traveling to Dallas, Texas (2-3 charter buses = $20,000-$30,000) and registering our teams ($1,200 per team) is expensive. The purpose of this event is to help reduce that cost so that our 100+ young engineers can compete in and experience this once-in-a-lifetime event! Reserve your table with your company and/or friends (21+) to see what our talented Wa-Nee students are up to! Tables are limited, so confirm your reservations ASAP. To purchase tickets, please use the link to the right, listed under website. Once that page is open, click the “Tickets” tab for the online reservation form.
