KJR Kares-A-Thon features lots of cool stuff

Tomorrow (Friday) marks the annual KJR-AM Gasman’s KJR Kares-A-Thon, with money being raised for a trio of good charities, including the Lorenzo Romar Foundation.

There are a number of auction items available on the website for the event, many of which involve UW sports. So make sure to take a look.

Included is one that involves yours truly, an event that is being called a Dinner with the Husky Football Insiders, where the winning bidder and three friends get dinner with Mike Gastineau, Damon Huard, Elise Woodward and, well, me. (And yes, I wonder what I’m doing there, too. I’ll just clear tables or something. But it should be a good time).
