Cliff Avril Dines To Make A Difference

For a fourth straight year, Cliff Avril and his Cliff Avril Family Foundation put on a Dining To Make A Difference event featuring Seahawks players and coaches posing as celebrity waiters for an evening. 

The night saw Avril and his teammates serving three-course dinners to attendees at Palisade restaurant in Seattle, where in addition to the meal guests were treated to a live and silent auction, raffle, and unique interactions with Seahawks players.

Funds raised from the event go back to Avril's foundation, which he started in 2014 to increase awareness of Type 2 diabetes in youth, and which in recent years has expanded to execute humanitarian efforts in Haiti, where Avril's roots lie, in addition to working with community-based organizations in Seattle and Avril's native town of Jacksonville.
