WSU offers free tickets to first responders, food donators
Washington State football is giving back to those who have sacrificed their time, effort and safety during Eastern Washington’s brutal wildfire season.
Families, firefighters, and relief workers from affected communities will be given free tickets to WSU’s season opener against Portland State on Saturday.
“We realize these devastating fires have impacted so many people throughout our region and continue to do so,” said athletic director Bill Moos. “Cougar Athletics would like to have those affected by the wildfires as our guests Saturday. Communities around the Northwest have supported Washington State Athletics through the years and we would like to offer some relief by enjoying a Cougar Football Saturday.”
Washington State Athletics is also offering one end zone ticket to Saturday’s game to anyone who donates three nonperishable food items or a case of bottled water, which will go towards supporting food banks in the local communities affected by the fires.
