Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, May 2 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Richard Sherman At The White House
Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is slated to be one of the celebrity guests on Saturday night at the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner. President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and several news outlets will be in attendance. Sherman, who Terry Blount of ESPN.com says will be seated with his girlfriend Ashley Moss at The Huffington Post table, will be joined by five other current NFL players at the event - Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, and Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins.
Seahawks Shine At 'Prime Time'
Seahawks general manager John Schneider and his wife Traci put on the third annual 'Prime Time' celebrity waiter event last night at El Gaucho Bellevue to raise funds and awareness for autism through "Ben's Fund" - named after the Schneider's son living with autism. Three-dozen Seahawks players competed to earn "Ben's Bucks" from the guests on hand, which in turn could be used to purchase autograph and photo opportunities from the players. The event has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support families living with autism over the years.
Below, check out Seahawks players' social media posts surrounding the event.
