Catching Up

January was off to a busy start where we got to see many of you at events in different regions all throughout the Pacific Northwest. We are eager for the fun to continue this month and hope you can join us and fellow Wildcats on campus or in your area at one or more of the events we have planned or you.

First up, join us for a Wildcat social at Bonney Lake Tavern this Saturday, February 8. All are welcome to join us from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. where you can enjoy discounts on breakfast, and your first drink on us! 

At the end of the month, catch us on the road at one, or both, of our away basketball socials in Seattle and Olympia. On February 27, meet us at O’Blarney’s Irish Pub as we travel for the CWU vs. Saint Martin’s University games. On February 29, join us at Nickerson Street Saloon before the women’s and men’s games against Seattle Pacific University. 

If you can’t make it to these away games, come to a home basketball game in Ellensburg where we will be providing hospitality in the new Pat Lacey room! There are still three games that you can join us at where we will provide food and beverages after the women’s games and during halftime of the men’s games. Access is exclusive to those who are part of the alumni association and Wildcat Club, so make sure your membership is current or join today! Visit our Facebook page to see all of the games we will be at this season, or to purchase your basketball game tickets. 

The 2020 Distinguished Alumni Awards are coming up on April 3 and we hope to see you there! Join us to celebrate distinguished alumni and donors for their contributions to the university, and to recognize the class of 1970 as they celebrate their 50-year reunion. There you can enjoy appetizers, beverages, and dinner during the award ceremony. Get your tickets today!

This credit card is available to all Wildcats as part of the alumni association affinity program, which also offers a free Crimson Visa Debit Card when you open a checking account at 1st Security Bank.
