A Sneak Peek

We’ve got some pretty awesome items coming in this year for our 8th Annual No Sweat Event Auction and thought we’d give you a sneak peak of some of them (see below!)

One of our more unique items is a football signed by Seattle Seahawks players Bobby Wagner, Bruce Irvin, Leon Washington, Malcolm Smith, Mike Morgan, KJ Wright, Marcus Trufant, Greg Scruggs, and Seattle Sounder John Kennedy Hurtado. We wanted to know the story behind the football, so we asked Seattle Children’s Carmay Jones-Isaac how she came up with it…

Carmay was getting her hair cut at her usual spot, Standing on Top Barbershop in Bellevue (check out her awesome mohawk!), and was brainstorming with her barber Reuben Watkins about what Seattle Children’s (one of our community sponsors) could donate to our upcoming auction. Carmay wanted to include sessions for Seattle Children’s Athletic Performance Enhancement Program with something else sport-related. Her barber Reuben, whose barbershop clientele includes many of the Seahawks, suggested she buy a football and offered to ask every player who came in to get his hair cut to sign it. Over the course of a few weeks, the ball gathered 9 signatures (see below!)

 

 

 

Thank you, Carmay, for making this priceless item possible!
