HOISINGTON — Jeff Zoller, avid KU fan, and Alan Hoffman, equally avid K-State fan, fulfilled their obligation of dressing like the opposing team’s cheerleaders on Thursday morning, Nov. 5, at the Hoisington Chamber of Commerce coffee at State Farm.
Both men participated in a bidding war during the Kans for Kids Auction on Oct. 3, agreeing that the loser would fulfill the aforementioned obligations. In a show of good sportsmanship,  they declared a tie after raising $7,575 for the organization and agreed that it would only be fair for both to participate in cheerleading.  
After appearing for photos, the two men hopped on a golf cart and began making the rounds around Hoisington, cheering along Main Street and stopping in at various Chamber member businesses on a brief publicity tour.
Kans For Kids Director Deb Reif and board member Dr. Lindsay Mitchell presented both with certificates of appreciation for their “sacrifice” and effort in helping with the Kans For Kids mission of helping families whose children are diagnosed with cancer.  
“Kans For Kids is grateful for all Jeff and Alan have done,” Reif said.  “And it’s been a lot of fun.”
