A thousand UW faculty, staff and alumni have signed up to watch the Seattle Mariners battle the Cleveland Indians on July 18 — but there are 500 tickets still available. The deadline to purchase tickets has been extended to July 16.
The evening at Safeco Field, called Husky Summer Celebration Night with the Mariners, is sponsored by the UW Alumni Association and the Leadership, Community and Values Initiative.
Tickets are discounted from $20 to $17, and each ticket purchased will send $6 to the Husky Pride Fund, a scholarship maintained by the Alumni Association that provides emergency help for students in difficult circumstances. The first 25,000 in attendance also will get a free Felix Hernandez bobblehead.
