Husky Summer Celebration

Hey baseball fans, how about heading out to the Tacoma Rainiers game June 20 to cheer on the purple and gold? Yes, you read that right. The home team will be donning purple and gold jerseys in honor of the UW at Husky Night with the Tacoma Rainiers-one of seven baseball games, and nearly 20 events, that will be part of the 2009 Husky Summer Celebration.

Enjoy an all-you-can-eat pre-game buffet, then join your fellow Dawgs in a special purple-and-gold seating section to watch the Rainiers take on the Reno Aces. UW Alumni Association members get in at a discount. Visit the Husky Summer Celebration page for more information, and to get your tickets.

Husky Summer Celebration is a summer-long series of salmon barbecues, baseball games and other gatherings of UW loyalists across the country. It's an opportunity for Huskies young and old-alumni, current students, incoming students, parents and fans-to enjoy each other's company and celebrate the UW in their own backyard.
