Oread to host Rob Riggle at fundraiser meet-and-greet

Actor, comedian and Kansas University alumnus Rob Riggle will appear at a scholarship fundraiser and meet-and-greet Aug. 24 at The Oread hotel, 1200 Oread Ave.

The event, which will take place at 7 p.m. in the hotel's Hancock Ballroom, will benefit an educational fund for the young children of the late James "Jim Bob" Clark, a longtime Lawrence resident and employee of Olivia Collection (which manages both the Oread and Eldridge hotels) who passed away earlier this year.

This just in. The Oread has extended the RSVP deadline to Aug. 21. There's still plenty of time to recruit friends to join you at this local fundraiser.
