What do Virginia Mason, the Seahawks and Safeway have in common? They’re all interested in supporting a healthy lifestyle for the community. They also have fun while doing it.
In an entertaining Safeway Seahawks Sweep gameshow, three Seahawks, three Q13 FOX anchors and three Safeway customers teamed up to benefit three local charities. The receiving organizations were Virginia Mason, the Hope Heart Institute and the American Diabetes Association. The event was modeled after 1990s game show “Super Market Sweep.”
With former Seahawks safety Jordan Babineaux as host, each team competed in a food product quiz, turkey bowling and a shopping spree to see who could collect the highest value grocery basket.
