RICHLAND, Wash. - A brunch fundraiser to support the Carson College of Business will be hosted by Washington State University Tri-Cities, 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 27, at Anthony's at Columbia Point in Richland, Wash.

The 'Point to Success Brunch' will feature WSU football great Ryan Leaf who will present 'Lying to Myself: The Ryan Leaf Story - My journey from the very top to the very bottom and back and what it takes to stay there.'

The event also will include a wine grab, live and silent auctions featuring prizes ranging from a stay at a penthouse condo for eight in Mexico, to a round of golf with Leaf, to two nights for four on a Lake Union houseboat, in addition to an excellent meal presented by Anthony's.

'All proceeds from the event make a direct and immediate impact on the success of business education and students at the WSU Tri-Cities campus,' said Robert Harrington, academic director of the Carson College of Business at WSU Tri-Cities. 'This investment in quality business education in the Tri-Cities allows us to support innovations in the classroom, services and activities for student and academic career success and faculty development of research that provides business insights.'
