KU Football Giveaway!

Congratulations Megan from Merriam! You are are the winner of the KC Kids Fun KU giveaway. Enjoy your time in Lawrence at a KU Football game, with the added perks of Junior Jayhawk Kids Club membership and $50 to spend in Downtown Lawrence.

As always, thanks to all of our KC Kids Fun readers for participating…Rock Chalk!

In our house, back to school means a day trip to Lawrence, KS for KU football! It’s an easy drive, the kids LOVE KU Jayhawk Kids Club 1 traipsing down Mass Street for lunch or dinner (depending on game time) and the excitement of watching a live football game in the stadium is one they’ll never forget.

What’s made our trip to Lawrence even more memorable these days is the Junior Jayhawk Kids Club, the Official Kids Club of Kansas Athletics for all kids 13 & under. In addition to free admission to two (2) KU Football games, 1 KU Men’s Basketball game (yes, it’s true), and all KU Women’s Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, Baseball and Softball games, the kids get a Junior Jayhawk Kids Club t-shirt, a birthday card each year from Jay, and a cute little coin pouch. Plus, die-hard KU fans can take it even further now by celebrating their children’s birthdays at KU Athletics events through the Jayhawk Birthday Program.

Because it’s one of our fave ways to spend a fall Saturday, KC Kids Fun wanted to share the excitement with you and your family. We’ve teamed up with Kansas Athletics for our latest giveaway:
