By Trish Svoboda

On October 12th, 2023, Pawnee Mental Health hosted its 5th annual Driving the Dream dinner and auction at the K-State Alumni Center in Manhattan. Robbin Cole, chief executive officer of Pawnee Mental Health, said this year was a huge success. They exceeded last year’s total and raised around $140,000 to help support communities with their services.

This year, along with the dinner and auction, Robbin said they had a pie contest.

Another first this year was a raffle with the prize of a purse filled with gift cards.

She also mentioned her thanks to all who made this event possible.

Robbin said next year they plan to continue these traditions.
