Kick Hunger Challenge Dinner & Auction (For Food Lifeline)

The idea that some people go hungry while others have so much to eat has always hurt me. That’s why I’ve teamed up with the Seattle Seahawks for the Kick Hunger Challenge for years to raise money for Food Lifeline.

On January 8, 2020 the Kick Hunger Challenge Auction & Dinner returns. The event will be held in Bellevue at the Civica Office Commons.


Former Seattle Seahawk and Pro Football Hall of Famer Walter Jones and I will once again host this much-anticipated annual event to raise money for Food Lifeline via the Taste of the NFL’s Kick Hunger Challenge.

Up to 150 guests (21+) will be treated to a Miami-style Super Bowl-themed dinner menu designed by Chef Howie, live music, and spirited live and silent auctions featuring Seahawks memorabilia and exclusive experiences. Microsoft is the presenting sponsor of Seattle’s Kick Hunger Challenge.

All proceeds go directly to Food Lifeline, Washington State’s largest hunger relief network.

► What is the Kick Hunger Challenge?

The Taste of the NFL’s Kick Hunger Challenge is a friendly fundraising competition between all 32 NFL teams to raise money for food banks nationwide. Over the last seven seasons, the Seattle Seahawks team has won the Taste of the NFL’s Kick Hunger Challenge four times, providing $900,000 for Food Lifeline or more than 4 million meals for those in need around Western Washington.
