Residents are invited to an “Ugly Neckwear FUNraiser” to raise money for students traveling to Washington, D.C., for Washington Seminar.

The fundraiser runs from 4 to 8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 12, at Barkley’s Burgers, Brews and Dawgs, 2710 W. Court St. The event features silent auctions and raffles. The attendee with the ugliest neckwear will win a prize, according to a news release.

To celebrate 46 years of Parker High School students attending Washington Seminar, Barkley’s will donate 10 percent of food sales to the Westside Washington Seminar group. The group will use the money to offset the cost of the students' trip, according to the release.

To donate money or an auction item, call Renae Henry at 608-247-2011.
