Kansas Lottery, the agency that oversees popular cash-reward games and casinos in the Sunflower State, has partnered with the University of Kansas Alumni Association to provide prize packages for two of the Alumni Association’s largest annual fundraising events, the Rock Chalk Ball in Kansas City and the Jayhawk Roundup in Wichita. The partnership also includes the lottery’s “Powered By” designation on the Alumni Association mobile app and an investment in a comprehensive digital marketing package.

“We’re thrilled to bring Kansas Lottery into the Alumni Association family this year,” said Heath Peterson, d’04, g’09, Alumni Association president. “The lottery’s generous investment helps us enhance and build valuable programs and services for alumni, students and fans throughout Kansas and beyond.”

“Our partnership with the KU Alumni Association gives us the opportunity to connect with our players in new and exciting ways, while supporting the fine work the Association does in Kansas,” said Stephen Durrell, c’92, executive director of the Kansas Lottery and a lifetime Association member. “We are excited about this opportunity and what it affords the Lottery and the Alumni Association.”
