SPOKANE, Wash. - Hayden Homes and The Pacific Northwest Inlander, the two sponsors of the Hayden Homes Cougar Shootout have donated more than 120 sets of tickets to the event to area charities. Recipients of the tickets were the Habitat for Humanity, Martin Luther King Jr. Center, YMCA and Big Brothers and Sisters. The Hayden Homes Cougar Shootout will be played December 8-9 at the Spokane Arena and will give fans a chance to witness women's collegiate basketball at the same venue that will play host the 2001 NCAA Women's West Regional to be held March 24 and 26.
"For us, being able to give something back is an important part of being a part of the community," said Hayden Homes director of Marketing Deborah Flagan. "We are happy to be able to provide a fun source of entertainment for those who might not normally be able to attend, especially during the holiday season."
"The Inlander has always done a great job of supporting WSU Athletics, and we are extremely grateful for their support and Hayden Home's support of this event," added WSU Athletics director of Marketing and Promotions J.D. Griffith. "It's great to work with two companies such as Hayden Homes and The Inlander, not only for their support of Cougar Athletics, but also for their ongoing support of the Inland Northwest Community."
Hayden Homes, founded in 1989, has communities in 18 cities throughout the northwest, including four in the Spokane area.
