Cheers For Charity

Several Husky legends and the Metropolitan Grill will be teaming up on Thursday, Oct. 20 to raise money for The Big "W" Club Scholarship Funds. The celebrity bartenders will be serving up cocktails from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the downtown restaurant with a portion of the proceeds from "Cheers For Charity" going to the scholarship fund.

Scheduled to serves drinks on Thursday are former Huskies' Mario Bailey, Blair Bush, Nesby Glasgow, Michael Jackson, Sonny Sixkiller and Greg Lewis. Lewis is also the Director of The Big "W" Club.

The athletes will serve drinks from the bar, including the specialty cocktail "The Dawg Bite" created exclusively for the event. Guest will not only be able to buy drinks to support the scholarship fund, but will be able to make donations and purchase autographed items from the Husky greats along with other memorabilia.

Since 1900 the Big "W" Club has existed to preserve the history and heritage of Husky Athletics. The Primary Goals of the Big "W" Club are to provide letter winners with an avenue to reconnect with former teammates and letter winners and to support the current Husky Athletes. The Big "W" Club goal is to build an endowed scholarship for each team. In doing so, we not only help in the rising costs of college tuition but we ensure the future of husky athletics to remain strong. The unique part about this is that when you donate to the Big "W" Scholarship fund, you get to decide where your support goes. For more information contact Greg Lewis at 206-685-3013.
