KU's Audio-Reader Network collecting donated electronic items Saturday for 'For Your Ears Only' fundraiser

LAWRENCE - The Audio-Reader Network at the University of Kansas is gearing up for its annual “For Your Ears Only” fundraising event. Donations of new and gently used audio products will be accepted from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26, at Kief's Audio & Video, 2429 Iowa St. in Lawrence.

Audio-Reader representatives will be on site to collect donations of albums, CDs, stereos, turntables and other electronic audio items. The first 20 people who donate on Saturday will receive a free Audio-Reader coffee mug. Other prizes will be distributed throughout the day.

Those who can't make it to Kief's on Saturday can drop off donated audio products at the store through Sept. 15.

Other collection sites for the fundraiser include Audio-Reader, 1120 W. 11th St.; Express Wireless at Fairlawn Plaza in Topeka; the KU Edwards Campus Regents Center Lobby in Overland Park; and KCUR-FM, 4825 Troost Ave., Suite 202, in Kansas City, Mo.

Audio-Reader's “For Your Ears Only” sale will be Sept. 22-23 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. The annual sale features thousands of record albums for $1 and compact discs for $3 as well as decorative accessories and used audio equipment and musical instruments.

Admission is free on Sept. 23, but a $7 donation will be requested at the door for early-bird shopping on Sept. 22. Tickets for advance entry on Sept. 22 will be available for $5 at Kief's during the donation drive on Saturday.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Audio-Reader, a reading service for blind and print-disabled persons that provides free broadcasts of readings from current books, magazines, newspapers and other printed materials.
