Famous Sports Figures Help Raise Funds for Area High School Athletes

Aug 11, 2017

Pullman, WA—Pullman Regional Hospital Foundation has teamed up with famous sports champions to provide an exclusive autograph session and silent auction at Zeppoz in Pullman on September 2, 2017.

Champions for Kids Autograph Session—presented and hosted by Zeppoz—provides sports fans a chance to meet Drew Bledsoe, Jason Gesser, Connor Halliday, Rueben Mayes, Mark Rypien, Mack Strong, and Jack Thompson.

A $75 ticket for the Champion Experience includes an autograph from each champion; a $150 pre-event VIP ticket provides one-on-one time with each champion in addition to an autograph. The silent auction will showcase more than 30 autographed photos and sports memorabilia, and cards and mini helmets will be available for purchase.

All event proceeds support a new program under the hospital's Orthopaedic Center of Excellence to provide local high school students of Colton, WA; Garfield-Palouse, WA; Potlatch, ID; and Pullman, WA full-service athletic training services.

The event was inspired by hospital commissioner, Jeff Elbracht.  “We’re excited to host an event which benefits our student athletes and grateful these champions are volunteering their time to support the kids,” said Elbracht.
