The Mankato Area United Way holds its second annual Men's Event Thursday night.

The fundraiser geared toward guys was held at the Kato Ballroom.

It featured games and raffles for prizes such as Timberwolves suite and tickets, J. Long Attire.

Attendees could also sample local cuisine from local restaurants.

"And a lot of competition between them," says Barb Kaus of the Greater Mankato Area United Way. "They like to have the competition. And just raise dollars for agencies United Way supports underneath its umbrella."

The event was sponsored by MTU Onsite Energy.
