Regristation is located at – Ladies Night Out with Bill Self

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas men’s basketball will host Ladies’ Night Out with Bill Self, a clinic to benefit Jayhawks for a Cure on Thursday, Oct. 28, from 6-9 p.m.

The clinic is designed to for any woman interested in learning more about basketball, regardless of what level of knowledge they may have. All proceeds from the clinic will go to breast cancer research through Jayhawks for a Cure, supporting cancer treatment and research at Lawrence Memorial Hospital and the KU Cancer Center.

“It’s a great time to do something like this being national breast cancer awareness month,” Kansas head coach Bill Self said. “All the proceeds are going to go to breast cancer research. We expect a great turnout and these women can learn about Kansas basketball from more than being at the game or watching it on television. After attending this clinic, they will get an insider’s view of what it takes to be a Jayhawk.”

Registration for the event is from 5-6 p.m. in Allen Fieldhouse. Attendees will get an inside look at Kansas men’s basketball with discussion topics such as a player’s perspective of “a day in the life”, weight training and nutrition, KU highlight videos and a Q&A session with current men’s basketball players, staff and Self.

The group will get an open look at Allen Fieldhouse and the basketball facilities. While on the Fieldhouse floor, those in attendance will have stations where they will be tutored in fundamentals such as shooting, dribbling, etc, and learn what it is like to travel with the Jayhawks. The evening will end with autograph and photo opportunities.

Space is limited and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. The cost of the event is $100 in advance and walk-up registration the day of the event is $125. Advance registration can be done at Ladies Night Out with Bill Self.

Jayhawks for a Cure is a coordinated effort to bring Kansas Athletics student-athletes, coaches and staff together with the University of Kansas and Lawrence communities to raise awareness and funds for cancer research.

Jayhawks for a Cure has and will feature events throughout the year, giving fans multiple opportunities to support the fight against cancer. All funds raised by Jayhawks for a Cure will benefit Lawrence Memorial Hospital and the KU Cancer Center.
