Clash for Cash ramps up Battle in Seattle competition
for release: Sept. 16, 2010
MONMOUTH – Alongside the second annual Battle in Seattle event where Western Oregon University’s football team takes on Central Washington University’s, a challenge in giving has been set. The Annual Funds for each school are competing to see who can raise the most cash for student scholarships. This philanthropic battle starts Saturday, Sept. 18 and continues through the end of the Battle in Seattle game, which takes place at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 16 at Qwest Field.
"This is an exciting opportunity for everyone to get involved, even if they can’t come to the game. I think that supporters of WOU as a collective can really blow this competition out of the water,” said Melissa Carlin, the annual fund program assistant for University Advancement at WOU.
