The Big 10 Network is broadcasting the annual Nebraska Cornhusker Red & White Game scheduled for Saturday, April 6, 2013, at 12:00 PM PST. The Lucky 7 Saloon in Kirkland has offered to host for us. They have also offered to give Husker fans 10% off food and drink. We hope you can join us!
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.
Congratulations to Ken D. for winning the football tickets. Have a great time visiting Nebraska! Enjoy watching the Nebraska vs. Illinois Homecoming football game in Lincoln, NE on October 5, 2013. Through this effort, we were able to raise more than $400. Thank you to Duke Hudson, past President and current member, for donating the tickets and supporting the radio program.

Again, there was overwhelming support from the Washington Cornhuskers to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House, serving approximately 100 people.
We cooked dinner for children undergoing treatment at Seattle Children's Hospital and their family. Thank you to Dave Knaup for volunteering his culinary expertise to provide a well-balanced and high quality meal. And thank you to the 15 volunteers who helped prepare and serve the food to the families.
