Melissa Erickson Benefit On Aug. 28
On Aug. 28th, there will be a benefit to raise funds for ex-Washington women's basketball player Melissa Erickson, who is going through a tough fight with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, more popularly known in the U.S. and Canada as Lou Gehrig's disease.
The benefit is a Ring Around The Needle pub crawl through the lower Queen Anne neighborhood (near Key Arena and Seattle Center) from 1-5 p.m. Proceeds are $50, but guests who pre-register can attend for $40. Costs include drink tickets and a t-shirt.
During her playing days (1997-2001), the 6-3 forward wowed fans at Hec-Ed with her physical style. During her senior season at UW, the Huskies reached the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament.
