2,664 Reasons Why It’s OK for the Cougars to Beat the Huskies

By in Richland WA Real Estate & Homes for Sale with 0 Comments

At William Wiley Elementary in West Richland, WA, they have an annual food drive.  Two years ago, the Apple Cup Canned Food Battle began.  Children donated canned goods and instant meal packages into their favorite team’s box.  We have a ton more Cougar fans than Husky fans in this part of the state, so the Cougars have won each year. 

My son is a Husky fan, and for the past two years has actually talked me into buying additional food just for the canned food drive!  In the past, I had always just given what I had in the cupboard and stocked back up for the family next time I went to the store.  But for the past two years, I have specifically gone to the store just to buy food to donate!  He puts the food in the Husky box, but they have yet to win.

Last year, the William Wiley Elementary Canned Food Drive brought in over 2,664 pounds of donated food!  And, as I tell my son, when it helps other people out, it’s okay if your favorite team loses.

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
