Another Slam Dunk for Husky Hoops Half-Time Fundraiser Show

Posted in Events by Marilou Ubungen

Since 1989, a portion of the proceeds from every home purchased or sold through Windermere Real Estate is donated to the Windermere Foundation. The Foundation uses these donations to provide funding to programs that support low-income and homeless families in our communities. One event that we have supported over the past few years is the annual Husky Hoops half-time free-throw fundraiser at the University of Washington vs. Washington State men’s basketball game.

Four kids from the University Family YMCA participated in this year’s event, which took place on Saturday, January 10. The Windermere Foundation donated $100 for each free-throw that was made during the special half-time event, with a minimum $1,000 donation. The four YMCA kids gave it their all, with the stadium crowd cheering them on. The kids had a blast and the University Family YMCA received a check for $1,000.

The YMCA is just one of the many non-profit organizations that the Windermere Foundation supports, donating funds over the years towards tuition-assistance for low-income children to attend after-school enrichment programs and summer camp activities. To date, the Windermere Foundation has raised over $28 million for programs and organizations that provide shelter, clothing, children’s programs, emergency assistance, and other services to those who need our help the most.
