Inaugural "EeeWoos" are on Tuesday

Limited seating is available for the public to attend a comedy and music extravaganza that honors 2008-09 awards recipients in several categories

The inaugural "EeeWoos," a comedy and music extravaganza created to honor Eastern Washington University student-athletes, takes place this Tuesday (May 26) at 6 p.m. at the Showalter Auditorium on the EWU campus in Cheney, Wash.

A limited amount of seating is available for the public to attend the formal awards gala, which is the brainchild of Davin Perry, the athletic department's electronic media coordinator. Interested fans may call Perry at 509-359-6689 or email him at for more details or to RSVP.

Perry's video productions will be featured, including humorous skits and inspirational stories. A sample of Perry's work may be found at:
