Husky Band Foundation kicks off

Husky fans, here is your chance to sit in the comfy, leather seats of the Don James center while sipping a beer, eating BBQ and watching football practice down below on the field at Husky Stadium. <br><br> And it's all for a GREAT cause!

Come watch the dawgs knock helmets on the field, come hear Coach Rick Neuheisel speak, and come munch on BBQ from Porter's/Dixie's while sipping on your favorite beverage!

Does this sound like fun to you? If so, be sure to come to the inaugural event of the Husky Band Foundation (HBF) on Wednesday, August 21st. This foundation was created to assist the Husky Marching Band by creating scholarships and other financial resources.

We'll watch Husky football practice from the Don James Center, and also enjoy barbeque, beverages, and the company of Rick Neuheisel, who will come up after practice and talk about the upcoming Michigan game.

It starts at 4:30pm and goes to 7:30pm. We are only charging $7 to cover costs, although donations of $50 and up are encouraged.

In addition, a Pep band will be premiering the new band uniforms (that the foundation raised $96,000 for last year). Dave Samek, AKA "Dawgman", will be there and will be eager to talk dawgs with you.

I know many of you over the years have enjoyed the Husky Band and hope you will support this event.

Please RSVP to this event at 206-543-7557.

Thanks in advance and Go Dawgs!
