Community members are invited to a University of Washington (UW) vs. Washington State University (WSU) hockey game and auction/raffle for the benefit of Redmond High School (RHS) graduate Chanel Cogan, who was severely injured in a hiking accident on July 31.

The game is set for 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2 at Olympic View Ice Arena, 22202 70th Ave. W. in Mountlake Terrace. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. for raffle sales. Admission is $5 for the general public and $3 for UW students with student ID.

Organized by RHS grad and UW student David Schulman, the event’s ticket sales and raffle proceeds will help to pay medical bills for Cogan, who is undergoing intensive rehabilitation therapies after she fell 100 feet from a cliff near Kachess Lake.

“Tickets will be available at the door only,” Schulman noted. “Seating is open, stadium style, so get there early. Concessions are also available at the arena,” although there will be no alcohol sales, he added.

Auction items will include:

• “Best of Northwest Rowing” — Learn to Row with Lake Union Crew and ride along with a coach during a Washington crew practice

• “Teatro ZinZanni Weekend in the City” — Two nights at the MarQueen Hotel and tickets for two to Teatro ZinZanni

• “Fit and Focused” — Lululemon yoga starter kit and three private Pilates lessons from certified instructor Jessica Mac Phee

• “Bourbons of Kentucky” — A selection of bourbons and accessories from Jim Beam (for guests age 21 or older)

• “Boeing 737 Factory VIP Tour” — A private tour of the 737 final assembly in Renton

• “Training for Top Performance” — Two hours of instruction in hitting, pitching, catching or any combination of skills from Performance Sports Training

• “Style by SEVEN” — Haircut and color with Ellie at SEVEN Bellevue salon

• “Custom Quilt by Local Artist” — A quilt that usually sells for around $1,000

• A Coach purse

Raffle items will include:

• An HP Notebook worth $300

• Everett Silvertips and Seattle Thunderbird tickets

• A beginners’ package for the Mt. Baker ski area

• Jamba Juice gift certificate

• Greenbaum Home Furnishings gift certificate

• Seattle Athletic Club, three-month family membership worth $900

• Family Fun Pack: Gift certificates to Kart Go-Karting in Bellevue, Traxx Go-Karting in Mukilteo and Family Fun Center in Tukwila

• Matt Campbell Photography services

Raffle tickets are $2 each and tickets can be used for any individual raffle as the purchaser chooses.

People must purchase the tickets in person at the event, in accordance with Washington raffle laws, said Schulman, but they do not have to be present at the drawing to win. The raffle drawings will occur after the second period of the hockey game, which could be sometime between 9:20-9:45 p.m.

The game will probably last until approximately 10:30 p.m., said Schulman.

“We play three, 20-minute stop-time periods, so game times vary,” he explained.

A Sept. 18 garage/sale bake sale on Northeast 87th Street in Redmond, also for Cogan’s medical bills, was a great success, according to organizer Pam Tschumi.

Tschumi commented, “Hancock’s Bakery donated most of the delicious baked goods for the bake sale. Shalimar (Backman) at The Closet (consignment shop) donated women’s clothing and Fresh Way Pizza donated pizza to all the volunteers who worked at the sale on Saturday.”

Chanel’s uncle Michael Cogan noted that J. Michael’s Pub has also collected money for her needs.

Michael said that before her accident, Chanel had finished half of her Associate’s degree at Bellevue College, during her senior year at RHS, was working two jobs and volunteered at a third.

“She is an industrious young girl,” said Michael. “The Chanel Cogan Special Needs Trust … is relying on donations … to provide any additional services that this young girl may need.”

Donations to that trust fund can be made at any Bank of America branch.
