Eastern Volleyball Launches Second Edition of “Play to Stay” Fundraiser

With the 2011-12 school year winding down, the Eastern Washington University volleyball team will now turn its attention to a special fundraising effort in the upcoming season.

As of Friday (June 1), the Eagles have officially launched the second edition of their "Play to Stay" Fundraiser, which features a grand prize valued at more than $6,000. And this year, the raffle also includes a second-place prize valued at more than $1,500.

"Play to Stay" is a raffle to benefit EWU volleyball. All proceeds will be used to enhance the quality of the program and the Eagle Volleyball student-athlete experience. This may include anything from improvements to the new volleyball team room and locker room, additional resources for the athletic training room and/or weight room, or to improve travel accommodations for the student-athletes and staff.

Throughout the summer and 2012 volleyball season, every member of the team will be selling raffle tickets for the first and second-place prizes, which will be announced at Eastern's final home game of the season against Weber State on Nov. 17, 2012. The tickets are $50 apiece and only 500 tickets will be sold.

Interested parties can purchase these raffle tickets at all EWU home volleyball games in the 2012 season, or by simply contacting the EWU volleyball office at 509-359-7355, or Kara Hogan at 509-359-6394.
