RENTON, Wash. – The Seattle Seahawks and Boeing announced today the recipients of the 2015 Legion of Youth Powered by Boeing (LOY) game tickets. LOY is a unique community program created in 2014 to provide Seahawks game tickets to community organizations that serve youth throughout the Northwest.
LOY provides 100 game tickets to a group or organization each regular season home game. Groups selected this year will receive short video messages from Seattle Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll and Ray Conner, President and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, informing them they have been selected for this exciting opportunity.
"Empowering local youth is part of our long-standing commitment to give back to the community where our employees live and work," said Conner. "We are excited to be able to provide a memorable game day experience to local kids who are working hard to make good choices and are working towards productive futures."
LOY recognizes and rewards students who are committed to their school work, demonstrate leadership, and are active in the community. It also recognizes children who may be facing difficult challenges and need a positive boost.
"Legion of Youth is an outstanding program that recognizes students who make positive contributions in the classroom and in the community," said Seahawks President Peter McLoughlin. "We are pleased to partner with Boeing to provide tickets for deserving youth to be among the 12s on game day at CenturyLink Field."
During each of the eight regular season games, 25 students will each receive four (4) game tickets, breakfast with a special message from a Seahawks legend, concession vouchers, and a Legion of Youth Powered by Boeing sweatshirt.
