Get served lunch by the Dawgs for charity


by: Griffin Bennett

Coach Romar and the team will be guest serving at Sullivan’s Steakhouse downtown this Friday, the 16th, from noon until 2:00. This is not some crazy Karate Kid “wax on, wax off” training regimen set forth by Romar, but a charity effort in which all proceeds from the lunch will go to Sports in Schools.

This sounds like a very fun event and it’s for a good cause. I’d pay just to see Aziz N’diaye carrying a tray full of drinks for two hours. Bring your raincoat.

If you want to attend, call Sullivan Steakhouse at 206-494-4442.

Here’s the school’s official press release:

SEATTLE — With the college basketball season still weeks away, the Husky Basketball team is using the off time to help out several local charities.
