The Kick Hunger Challenge Celebrity Poker Event (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.

I’m excited to announce our celebrity poker event is back! Join Jordan Babineaux, Cliff Avril, numerous other Seattle Seahawks, other Seattle celebrities and I for a night of food, drink, and poker!

Kick Hunger Challenge Celebrity Poker Event
May 31st, 2019
Century Link Field
Tickets: $300 (enough to provide 1200 meals for those in need!)

Food will be prepared by John Howie Catering; Beer from Beardslee Public House, Cocktails featuring Wildwood Spirits Co. Gin and Vodka, Dark Door Bourbon, and a Wine Selection of John Howie Cabernet and Chardonnay produced Exclusively by Mark Ryan Winery for John Howie Restaurants (menu displayed below.)

You may not be able to tackle a Seahawk, but you could take them down at Texas Hold ‘Em! I hope you’ll be able to join us us. And if you can’t, please pass the information on to those who might be able to.

I’m proud of the money we’ve been able to raise for Food Lifeline over the years, but I know we couldn’t do it without our wonderful guests. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
