Thank you to everyone who attended the 2nd Annual Big 10 Holiday party at Willows Run Golf Course in Redmond. We had a full house and filled the club house. There were approximately 21 Huskers in attendance with an estimated 115 in attendance. At least 12 schools were represented with, one of our new schools to join the Big 10 in 2014, Maryland in attendance.
The next Big 10 events will be the Ski Day on January 25th and the golf event in the spring.
We are very excited to see each Big 10 event grow!
Thank you for your donations on November 2nd and with supporting Northwest Harvest and our community. We raised over 300 pounds and dollars from all three locations. Every little bit helps and we appreciate everyone taking the time to go shopping or looking through their home for needed items. We also appreciate those who donated money so needed items can be purchased. Go Big Red!
Attention Husker fans living in Spokane, Wenatchee, Tri-Cities, Yakima and in cities on the peninsula such as Bremerton, Gig Harbor, Port Orchard, Port Angeles and others. Husker fans who live or visit these cities contact us asking for watch sites in those areas.
Here's your chance to help your Husker family. The WA Cornhusker chapter is hoping to identify "Husker Friendly" locations in these cities where fans can come together and watch games. Here's how it works.
() Identify a location
() Talk to the owner
* Ask them to tune in to a Husker game when our fans request it. If the owner agrees, we'll advertise the location of their business for free online and other advertising outlets.
With more than 2,100 Husker alumni and fans living in Washington, we're bound to drive some business their way. So let us know once you've found a place. Please send an email to email@example.com or call Jim B. if you have any questions. (425) 359-2808.
The Washington Cornhuskers are now offering you the opportunity to purchase the ORIGINAL "Washington Cornhusker Collectible Geocoin". It is now available to purchase under the Merchandise tab, or follow this link. Each coin is $15 (shipping is included).
These one-of-a-kind coins are perfect for that one-of-a-kind Husker.
For those who could attend our event, thank you so much for coming. Also, thanks to the various businesses and individuals who contributed items for our silent auction. Special thanks to Andy Greer from NAA, Dr. Bill Velander and Coach John Cook for joining us. We had approximately 75 guests in attendance.
Our silent auction raised $2,952. Half of that money will be used to fund scholarships. The other half will go towards paying for the event. Our football ticket raffle brought in $430. (Thanks Duke) Those funds will go towards our radio program.
Congratulations to our two 2012 Volunteers of the Year, Jennifer Redding and David Knaup. Well deserved.
Our next Chapter function is scheduled for Saturday morning, March 9th at the Double Tree Hotel in Burien. We will gather for a breakfast social. Look for more details on that event on our Facebook page.
