Record-Courier staff report
The Kent Area Chamber of Commercen and Kent State University athletic department will host its 3rd annual Kickoff Luncheon at Dix Stadium on Wednesday, Aug. 21 at 11 a.m. The deadline for RSVPs for the event is set for Friday.
The cost of the luncheon is $35 for members and $200 for a table of seven, with seat No. 8 to be filled by a KSU coach or administrator. RSVPs should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 330-673-9855.
Last year's luncheon brought over 120 Kent State supporters, growing from the year prior.
Because of the generosity of those that attend this event and the comparable Tip-Off Scholarship Breakfast prior to the men's and women's basketball season in October, the Chamber was able to award three, $1,000 scholarships to graduating Kent Roosevelt High School students this past May.
First-year football head coach Paul Haynes, along with his staff, will be present at the luncheon and will speak about the upcoming season.
