Community and Charity Events




With a self-imposed deadline of last spring to complete fundraising for two athletic building projects, the WSU Foundation and WSU Athletics appealed to some special friends to help score a victory.

Among those accepting the challenge were Todd and Julie Lair and Ricky and Jeanie Metzen Brotherton, who donated generously to the Shock the World Campaign priorities. Both couples had made previous gifts to the projects, but upped their commitments to ensure their success.

“We look forward to seeing the baseball program get back to the prominence it had during the Gene Stephenson era,” Jeanie said in explaining why she and Ricky are supporting the final phase of the Eck Stadium development plan. “And we enjoy being able to give back to a community that’s been very good to us.”

The couple are season-ticket holders to both Shocker baseball and men’s basketball, and they enjoy road trips to watch the basketball team play on the road. Though neither attended Wichita State, they have family members who have. Ricky owns Brotherton Enterprises LLC and Jeanie is president and owner of F.H. Kaysing Co., a U.S. Customs broker.


Why We Relay


How We Relay

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We’ll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we’ll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we’ll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.

Many years ago FH Kaysing decided to help in the fight against cancer.  We began with corporate sponsorship for Relay For Life, which we continue to do, and in addition we have evolved into active participation in team fundraising.  We raised over $800 on our very first fundraiser!  We wish to extend a big thank you to all the corporate donors who helped make this possible and a special thanks to all our volunteers!




F. H. Kaysing Company is pleased to be a sponsor of the Special Olympics and to help carry on the hope of building communities and changing attitudes.
