Good afternoon, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Thursday, April 25 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Eat. Drink. Change Lives.
On the eve of the 2019 NFL Draft, Seahawks Legend Shaun Alexander co-hosted a pop-up dinner event in Nashville, Tennessee. Alexander joined forces with Café Momentum, a Dallas non-profit restaurant and culinary training program that provides opportunities for young men and women in the juvenile system to start fresh and learn new skills.
The event hosted other NFL Legends and local Nashville influencers to come together in order to raise awareness and advocate for juvenile offenders. The guests were treated with a three-course dinner from Café Momentum’s team of award-winning chefs. A group of young men currently in the Nashville juvenile justice system trained with Café Momentum and NFL Legends a few days prior to the event to help prepare and serve dinner.
Alexander also made a point to educate the youths of his time with the Seattle Seahawks. He elaborated on his NFL career and even noted that he was on the cover of Madden 2007.
19 years ago, Alexander was selected in the first round of the 2000 NFL Draft at pick no. 19 overall. This year the Seahawks Legend will be announcing the Seahawks’ pick in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor will also be announcing the team’s pick in the third round.
