REMINDER/A whole lotta 'WaMoola' for Portland Teachers; Teachers Grab for Cash in Washington Mutual's WaMoola Madness Machine

--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

WHAT: As part of Washington Mutual's WaMoola for Schools program,
three Oregon teachers will have the opportunity to grab some
extra cash for their schools in Washington Mutual's WaMoola
Madness Machine. Inside a booth filled with swirling $5s, $10s
and $20s, each teacher will have 30 seconds to grab as much
cash as they can. Washington Mutual will match their winnings.
        In addition, Washington Mutual will present nearly $150,000 in
        donations to local Oregon and Southwest Washington schools at
        the event.

WHEN: Thursday, November 1


TIME: 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM


WHERE: The Portland Art Museum 1219 SW Park Avenue Portland


WHY: WaMoola Madness is part of Washington Mutual's WaMoola for
Schools program honoring teachers. The WaMoola for Schools
program matches $1 for every new checking account opened at a
Washington Mutual location. Each year the bank donates the
WaMoola funds to local schools and school districts. Oregon
and Southwest Washington schools will receive more than
$39,000 from the program, which provided over $1.45 million in
financial support to K-12 public schools across the country.
The funds, which are earmarked for teacher development and
support programs, are presented each year at a special dinner.
