The Boys & Girls Clubs Washington State Association is now in their second year as a partner of the Seattle Seahawks‚Äô Spirit of 12 Partners Program.
As a Spirit of 12 Partner, the Boys & Girls Clubs will distribute the Seahawks Gameday Magazine, keeping 100% of the proceeds, which are then matched by the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation. Boys & Girls Clubs will distribute the magazines at the November 2nd and December 21st games. Last year, Boys & Girls Clubs raised over $55,000 through this great partnership.
The proceeds will benefit over 87,000 Club members between the ages of 6 and 18 and an additional 94,000 other youth through outreach services through out the state of Washington. The Boys & Girls Clubs offers programs within 124 Clubs, including 5 military bases, as well as over 100 outreach sites throughout the state.
The Seahawks and Boys & Girls Clubs will be working together to provide youth with needed life skills, self-esteem and positive values for a successful future.
Other ways that you can see the Boys & Girls Clubs working with the Seattle Seahawks to promote positive youth activity are:
- Seahawks Youth Football and Cheerleading Jamboree–a day of football and cheerleading for teams from the Northwest Youth Sports Alliance (partnership between Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound and Metro Parks Tacoma) at Qwest Field. An experience of a lifetime for these young athletes to play and perform on an NFL field.
- Boys & Girls Clubs members from Bellevue and South Puget Sound participated during the halftime performance for the August 29th preseason game. This was a great opportunity for the kids to see and experience Qwest Field up close and personal, as well as meet some of the players.
- Seahawks Gameday Magazine–100% of proceeds raised from distributing the magazine at the November 2nd and December 21st games will be matched by the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation and benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs Washington State Association.
- The NFL is a national partner of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, with the NFL Charities and NFL Youth Football Fund supporting programs at Clubs nationwide.
