Pasco, Wash. - CBC's third annual "Follow Your Dreams" banquet was a slam dunk for Hawk athletics. The event raised over $22,000 for athletic scholarships and facilities. Companies put money down for tables, there were donation boxes, and a silent auction featuring tickets and autographs. Ex-Cougar football head coach Jim Walden was the keynote speaker. Walden says he hopes he was able to help out. "I'm just glad someone thinks I can help by bringing in some people that might not come normally, which helps create more money," sid Walden. "If that's the case then Jim Walden's very successful. Whether I'm gonna say anything they're going to like or not, I hope they like my jokes. If they drink enough maybe they'll laugh."
