championship with Kansas coaches and players, plus you’ll rub
shoulders with celebrities and KU alumni. The dance floor will be an
Allen Fieldhouse replica court. The music will come from Sawyer Brown,
and Disco Dick and the Mirrorballs. The tickets do come with a warning
though: bring comfortable shoes because there will be plenty of
dancing. There might even be a special performance. Let’s
just say you’ll also see some of your KU favorites in a brand
new light - surprises await all those who attend.
The Boogie will give KU fans the chance to bid on memorabilia they
won’t find anywhere else in live and silent auctions.
It’s every diehard KU fan’s dream come true. Items
that allow you even more than bragging rights!

Seacrest’s latest show. NBC is searching for moms who are
ready to help their eligible son pick the right woman.
