|PHOTO ADVISORY/A Whole Lotta ``WaMoola'' for Seattle Teachers; Teachers Grab for Cash in Washington Mutual's WaMoola Madness Machine|
WHO/WHAT: As part of Washington Mutual's WaMoola for Schools
program, three Seattle teachers will have the opportunity to
grab some extra cash for their schools in Washington
Mutual's WaMoola Madness Machine.
In addition, Washington Mutual will present more than
$29,000 in donations to local Seattle Public Schools at
Thursday, May 3 at 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: Pacific Science Center, Building 2
(Media may enter through Denny Way entrance.)
HOW: 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.
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. Seattle schools will receive
more than $29,000 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.
Washington Mutual believes teachers make a critical
difference in a student's learning and is therefore
dedicated to supporting our nation's teachers as part
of its overall commitment to improving K-12 public
