NORTH NEWTON, KAN. – Kauffman Museum at Bethel College will celebrate its 30th year of hosting the Living Endowment Dinner by welcoming a man who has been telling stories for more than 50 years.

Friends of the museum are invited to gather Oct. 28 at 6:30 p.m. to visit and enjoy dinner served “around the circle” in Luyken Fine Arts Center on the Bethel campus.

This annual fund-raiser will feature retired KAKE-TV news anchor Larry Hatteberg. After dinner, he will present, in Krehbiel Auditorium, “Behind the Lens: Those Who Change Lives” – stories of those he has interviewed in the 51 years he has been a photojournalist and photographer.

“Hatteberg’s People” on Wichita’s ABC affiliate, KAKE, was the longest-running TV feature in Kansas. Over the years, Hatteberg profiled 2,000 people whose stories illuminated larger issues.

Hatteberg set the journalistic standard for video storytelling, receiving an Emmy® Award for lifetime achievement.

In “Behind the Lens,” Hatteberg will share memories of the people he met – and who changed his life – from his childhood in Winfield to his adventures in photojournalism that took him around the globe.

Cost for the Living Endowment Dinner is $125 per person. Reservations and payment are due by Oct. 24. Donations from those unable to attend are welcome.

Contact Andi Schmidt Andres at 316-283-1612 for more information or to make reservations or donations using a credit card.
