With the tragic loss of four Lakewood police officers recently, the Eagle mens basketball team and the Athletic Department will be asking for donations to help the families of the fallen officers during tonights non-conference game with the University of Puget Sound at 7:30 p.m. in the Pavilion.
The mens team will be playing in Parkland, the town near Lakewood where the officers were slain, at Pacific Lutheran University at 7:00 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 11 and will take all donations to the game. PLU is donating all proceeds from the gate and will be selling special t-shirts of which all proceeds will be donated to the Lakewood Police Departments fund for the surviving family members. Nine children lost their fathers or mother in the tragic event. We hope the people of Northwest University will help in any way possible by making a donation.
In addition to accepting donations at the game, there will be donation boxes in the Caf and in the Athletic Departments office today. There will also be a banner for people to sign that the basketball team will take to the PLU game for presentation to the Lakewood Police Department.
