The 6th Annual Western Rugby Alumni Blue & White Dinner Auction is about six (6) weeks away, February 24, 2018. The WWU Vikings play the Boise State University Broncos earlier that day.
The speaker for this year’s event will be Dan Raley, WWU grad and, more importantly, a great WWU rugby player. If you aren’t familiar with Dan and his career after graduating from Western, Dan went on to be one of the great writers in the Northwest, working at the Seattle P-I for 29 years and writing 4 books as well. He is one of the funnier people you’ll meet, a great sense of humor, and a friend of WWU Rugby and the Western Rugby Alumni.
As always, this year’s event promises to be a great one. It will be held at the Holiday Inn and Suites at the Bellingham Airport. The Holiday Inn is giving us a deal on rooms at $109.
You can register for the event by going to the www.wwurugby.org website and click on the “Blue & White – Dinner Auction” tab and click on the “Register…” tab. If you have an item you’d like to donate for either the Live or Silent Auction you can do that as well by clicking on the “Donate…” tab.
Again, as in years past, WWU Men’s Rugby Club team members will be in attendance helping with the various aspects of the event.
And, Louie Henson, the first WWU Men’s Rugby Club member to sign a contract to play pro rugby with the Seattle Seawolves will be in attendance as well.
So, sign up to attend, donate a something to the Live or Silent Auction, get a room and make a night of it.
