Seattle Seahawks players coming to private networking event in White Center

A dozen Seattle Seahawk players will be coming to a local, but private, networking event on May 14 as part of the launch of the Off Field Network (OFN).

The OFN is a series of private networking events designed to help players build lasting relationships off the field. OFN bridges the gap between professional athletes and the communities in which they serve.

The goal is to curate an intimate, private setting that allows community members to meet with players to discuss how they can get involved and benefit from local resources and partnerships.

Through a series of three events scheduled throughout the season, over 20 players have agreed to be introduced and paired with over 50 individuals who represent various local businesses, foundations, colleges/universities, eateries, and nonprofits.

Locally owned company (act. present. perform) has partnered with Seattle Seahawks Senior Director of Player Development, Maurice Kelly to develop and launch the Off Field Network.

The White Center event will feature two local organizations, Technology Access Foundation (TAF) and White Center Community Development Association (WCCDA). In addition, the event will also feature Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle, Russell Okung. Russell will be acknowledged for his dedication to community service through The Russell Okung UP Foundation, which provides resources to children of single parent homes while offering them hope through activities and information on the importance of a good education and social responsibility.
