Cougars give free tickets to those affected by WA wildfires

After three days of clean air in Pullman, it appears that Washington State's 11 a.m. game against Portland State will not be impacted by local wildfires. So, the Cougars are using their unsold tickets to help those who do need some relief.


WSU Athletics is offering free tickets to families, firefighters and relief workers from affected communities. WSU is also offering one end zone ticket to anyone who donates three food items or a case of bottled water, which will go to Second Harvest of Spokane and used by those affected by the fires. 


Food items can be exchanged for a ticket at the WSU ticket office outside Martin Stadium on Saturday. To arrange for free tickets, call the WSU ticket office at 1-800-GO-COUGS.


The athletic department has also partnered with KXLY radio to provide 200 tickets to people who make cash donations to the Red Cross from 5-9 a.m. and 5-7 p.m. on Thursday at the Spokane Federal Credit Union.
