Discounted tickets are now on sale for the 27th annual Orland Killin Dinner, Dance & Auction that will take place on Saturday, April 26, at Eastern Washington University.
Until March 1, cost for a table of eight is just $500 or a half-table of four for $250. After that date, tables cost $600 with individual tickets priced at $75 each.
The event starts with a social hour and auction at 4:30 p.m., followed by the dinner (6:15 p.m.) and dancing. More information is available at http://goeags.cstv.com/trads/ewas-killin.html and tickets can be obtained by calling 509-359-2463.
Prior to the dinner, the Red-White Spring Football Game takes place at 2 p.m. at Woodward Field. That event will conclude spring practice under first-year head coach Beau Baldwin, who takes over a team that finished 9-4 last fall and advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Championship Subdivision Playoffs.
The event raises funds for the Orland Killin Academic Scholarship Fund as well as athletic scholarships. It is named in honor of Orland Killin, who along with his wife Bernice helped create the event. Orland was a man immensely dedicated to academics and the integrity of Eastern Washington University, serving as professor, faculty athletic representative and faculty president. He was an Eastern football letterwinner in 1941-42.
More information on the 21st Annual EWU Football Coaches Golf Tournament on Friday, April 25, will be available soon. Eastern's soccer and volleyball squads are also expected to have scrimmages as part of the weekend of festivities.
