Two more events to add to our list of what’s up tonight:
SOUTH SEATTLE COLLEGE HONORS CISCOE MORRIS: 6 pm tonight at Brockey Center, the annual “Friends of the College” benefit recognizes outstanding scholarship-recipient students and alumni. In the latter category is gardening personality Ciscoe Morris, chosen Outstanding Alumni of the Year for 2014, 37 years after he graduated from the Landscape and Horticulture program at South.
DINE AT DUKE’S ON ALKI, HELP WEST SEATTLE BOOSTER BACK BASEBALL: First a game report:
That’s pitcher Larry Jensen, who Greg Slader (thanks again for the photo and game summary) says was perfect through three in the Wildcats’ 6-2 loss to Eastside Catholic on Monday. The Wildcats outhit the Crusaders 7-6 but as Greg reports, “one bad inning allowed six runs (after a highly contested play at the plate) and the only numbers that matter are runs scored.” The Wildcats visit Chief Sealth IHS tomorrow at 4 pm – but before that, you can give them a boost TONIGHT by dining at Duke’s Chowder House on Alki. Assistant coach Scott Meaker sends word that Duke’s is donating part of tonight’s proceeds to the West Seattle Booster Club, “in direct support of the West Seattle High School Baseball Team. All the money raised will help support the on-going championship program that last year finished 2nd in the Washington State High School Baseball tournament. That tournament, a trip to Pasco for the championship weekend, depleted all our previously raised funds so help us to replenish them so that we can provide a quality, safe, championship environment to promote better play, better players, and a better, higher quality baseball experience for our student athletes.” Dine at Duke’s 5-10 pm tonight (2516 Alki Ave. SW, reservations encouraged).
