Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Wednesday, May 27 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
ICYMI: Wilson's Challenge Pays Off
In case you missed it, Russell Wilson had a friendly challenge for Capital One's "The Match" golfers on Sunday and the pros delivered.
Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning took on Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady to raise $20 million for COVID-19 relief. As the competition reached the 16th hole, Wilson joined the cause. He pledged 100,000 meals to Feeding America for each of the players' tee shot within 12 feet of the hole.
Watch how it all unfolded next as Brady, Mickelson, and Manning all came through to Wilson's delight.
Just like that, 300,000 more meals for Feeding America. The gesture was the continuation of an ongoing effort from Wilson and wife Ciara who have already donated well over a million meals by teaming up with Food Lifeline.
During one of the most-watched golf telecasts in the history of cable television, Wilson continued to be a champion of charity together with some of the biggest athletes in sports.
Seahawks To Represent At All In WA Relief Concert
Our communities need our help – and All In WA is leading the way with a virtual concert for COVID-19 relief. On June 10, community foundations, philanthropic leaders, and artists will come together to bring awareness to Washington's needs with proceeds going to dozens of causes statewide.
Representing your Seahawks? Our very own head coach Pete Carroll and quarterback Russell Wilson.
The duo will join a long list of local celebrities in the virtual event as Wilson's wife Ciara along with Pearl Jam, Macklemore, Dave Matthews, and more will perform.
The All In WA coalition is made up of public officials, private companies, community organizations, individuals, and non-profits. The goal? Raise $65 million to provide immediate support for Washington workers and families. An advisory board will distribute the proceeds to 42 funds across the state covering food security, youth homelessness, small business, economic recovery and more. $20 million has been raised so far and you can join the cause at allinwa.org/donate!
The virtual concert will be broadcast on local stations KING 5 and KONG from 7-8 p.m, June 10. To learn more about the upcoming event and see the full concert line-up, visit King5.com today.
