I will be there!  I took a couple years off, and am glad to be back.  It’s a great event, and this year’s edition is extra special. 

If you were ever going to go, this is the year.

This is literally the best news I've heard in years.

Even better than that day last week that I told you I was going to come watch your show but then had to back out a couple of hours later?

It was a week later. My excitement had plenty of time to fester.

Remember to be looking for what you can contribute to the auction.  We always welcome people bringing stuff as they arrive, but it'll help if you can let us know in advance what you'll be bringing/sending, or even offering something we could auction and have you get to the winner afterwards.

Pete is going to be helping this year and we're hoping to be a bit more organized in taking bids from those who can't attend, but we're not to be counted on.  You should attend for many reasons, with the ability to bid on fabulous items just one of them.

Website is close to being all set.  Need to get some specific dollar figures but estimates are up.  That includes the official announcement that all of this is going to result in the Shwan Alkhatib Collaboration Room in the renovated Hale Library!

With that sorted out, we've been able to push the start time next Saturday to 11am.  We'll meet at the Union and start with a KK-led tour en route to the Library for a slightly more formal ceremony there around 11:30-ish.  When that concludes, we'll take everyone back through campus to see anything we missed from the first part and back towards Aggieville for lunch and down time before the usual stuff gets going by 2 at Mae's and on through the night.

We've also set up a twitter account - @fatty4ksu.  Follow it, RT it, etc.  That account tweets out posts from facebook.com/fatty4ksu.  In addition to promoting FattyFest all week, we'll use those accounts to show what's up for auction at FattyFest and take bids remotely.

But get to Manhattan for any and all of it, this is gonna be great.  Shwan's parents are going to match all money we raise as part of FattyFest up to the amount left to hit our goal.  KK's getting the exact numbers but factoring that opportunity in and another donation already en route, we're expecting we'll need to bring in around $9K this year to get this done, which is definitely doable.  LFG.

We only have $13,251 left to raise!

With the Alkhatib family pledging to match our fundraising this year dollar for dollar, we only have $6,625 left to raise!

We can do this!

Or if someone has a small-to-medium EMAW duffel bag we can borrow, bring that.
